The Saint James Rums from the distillery "Saint James" in Sainte Marie, Martinique, are fermented from fresh sugar cane juice. The Saint James Company grows most of the sugar cane required on its own land. During fermentation, which lasts 24 to 36 hours, all the sugar is converted into alcohol and then distilled. This produces cane rum with 75% vol alcohol content, which is then allowed to rest for half a year in stainless steel tanks. During this maturing period, the carbon dioxide and flavours produced during the distillation can escape. In this way the rum gradually acquires its harmonious, pleasant aroma and taste. It is then aged in oak barrels for at least 2 years.Tasting notes:Colour: mahogany. Nose: fresh, notes of sugar cane, grass, flowers. Taste: Fresh, soft, notes of spices, cinnamon, vanilla.
