With the precious legacy of 20 years of AOC Martinique, we have developed L’Essentiel, an exceptional Saint James rum born from a scrupulous choice of the very best vintages blended by experts. A trilogy of rare, exceptional vintages from 1998, 2000 and 2003, this blend is the fruit of a subtle selection of agricole rum earmarked from the still. Aged for over 12 long years in carefully-selected small Bourbon casks, these rums have remained untouched until blending to preserve their rich expression intact.

Dark, dense mahogany.
Roasted notes of mocha and cocoa.
Fruity flavours on the palate of stone fruit, prunes and candied fruit. A woody, spicy finish with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper running through. This unique offering is the perfect expression of Saint James rum."
