This rhum agricole was distilled at the Poisson distillery on Marie-Galante, where it spent almost 7 years ageing at the distillery before being sent to Amsterdam where it was finished for 9 months in an ex-calvados cask.
The distillery makes use of locally grown sugar cane that is harvested without burning the fields. The cane is then crushed to extract the juice, and allowed to ferment for a period of 72 hours with the supplementation of baker’s yeast. The resulting wash is then distilled in two old creole column stills to around 70%. The rum is then aged on site in ex-bourbon casks.
As with all of our rums, we use no flavour enhancing additives in the bottling of our rum.
The Story of Híali identifies the moon (Nónum) as a man with a dirty (stained) face, and his son Híali (one who has become most brilliant) as the founder of the Kalinago nation, as such all Kalinago are the children of the moon. [note that the name Kalinago shows a historical link to the Kalina (Caribs) of South America]
