Rhum Agricole Terroir Volcanique Rhum JM
  • Aged AOC Martinique Rhum agricole produced by Rhum J.M in Macouba, Martinique
  • Distilled from sugarcane on a Creole copper column still
  • Sugarcane is crushed within one hour of harvest and open-tank fermented with French baker’s yeast for 24 hours
  • Distillate is proofed with spring water sourced from Mt. Pelée; the rhum is rested and gradually reduced for 6 months before aging
  • Aged for three years, first in re-charred bourbon barrels and then transferred to ex-rum barrels that have undergone a heavy, alligator char (char #4)
  • A nose of bananas Foster, Golden Delicious apples, and Café Brûlot precedes a palate of clove, white pepper, and lace cookies with a bright finish of fresh banana leaf and lemon oil
  • No added sugar or coloring
  • 43% ABV

Rhum J.M utilizes its on-site cooperage to craft a spirit that conjures the essence of Mt. Pelée, the volcano that lends its unique character to the terroir in which J.M’s estate-grown sugarcane thrives, the flora that lends nuance to the rhum’s open-tank fermentation, and the spring water that filters through its rich soil before proofing J.M’s exceptional distillates. Master Blender Karine Lasalle expertly incorporates heavily charred barrels that convey smoke and earthiness, resulting in a rhum with wow-factor baking spice that still retains the verdant grassiness of the distillery’s younger expressions.
