ABOUT PLANTATION RUM
A committed perfectionist, Alexandre Gabriel, Plantation creator and Master Blender, searches ceaselessly for the latest production methods. In the 1990s, he crisscrossed the Caribbean to find the very best rums and launched Plantation.
Plantation rums and their iconic raffia-wrapped bottles are found at the world’s most prestigious tables and bars of the world creating each expression showcasing the flavors of a specific heritage and terroir whose double-ageing technique has become a trademark. As per centuries old tradition, first aged in the tropics, then further aged in French Oak casks in Cognac, France.
A bridge between history and today, where Plantation Rum’s home at the West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados is the epitome of resurrecting ancestral techniques to preserve rum excellence.
Thanks to its originality and quality, the Plantation range has won the hearts of rum lovers around the world. Expressions such as Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple (named three times the best spirit in the world) and Barbados XO 20th Anniversary have become classics.
