Rhum Barbancourt of Haiti is known the world over as "the rum of connoisseurs". Made from the juice of sugar cane, the production of Rhum Barbancourt follows a centuries-old tradition that grew from the French methods of creating cognac and brandy.Unparalleled in quality and taste, Rhum Barbancourt is distilled from hand-cut, locally grown sugar cane juice - never molasses; It is double distilled in pot stills; Aged in white oak barrels to yield a spirit that has been called "one of the finest rums in the world".
Barbancourt rum should not be mixed with Coca Cola. Its taste, comparable to a cognac, should be savored without alteration. Unlike white rums, the aged Barbancourt products, acquire the superb parfum of after-meal drinks. Even in the Caribbean, where discussions over the quality of local rums often turn into patriotic debates, Barbancourt stands out: it is simply different.
