Saint James Vieux 15 Year Rhum

Saint James Vieux 15 Year Rhum is one of the most precious and sought after of the Saint James distillery.

A rum of absolute excellence, matured in small oak casks with strong roasting for at least 15 years, enriching itself with aromas and reaching a complexity worthy of the greatest meditation distillates.

The intensity of aromas on the nose ranges from woody notes to toasted hints, and anticipates a taste on the palate of great complexity and persistence, which ends with a very high level finish. Aromas of roasted coffee, tropical fruit, nutmeg and ginger fill the nose, complemented on the palate by notes of espresso, toast, cinnamon and prunes.

Saint James Vieux 15 Year Rhum Agricole is produced by Saint James, one of oldest distilleries on Martinique Island (Caribbean).

Saint James was born in Saint-Pierre de la Martinique in 1765, from the hands of Reverend Father Edmund Lefebure, Superior of the Convent of the Brothers of Charity and a skilled alchemist. This dignified priest crafted a cane spirit called “Guildive” or “Tafia”. In the archives, a precise description of various qualities of spirit would suggest that “Rhum Agricole” from Martinique was born… A man of faith, but also with a good business sense, Father Lefebure started shipping rum to the geographically close British colonies in North America.

The Rum was named Saint Jacques, in tribute to Jacques Dyel who devoted his life to developing the Martinique Island, and became SAINT JAMES for commercial reasons in order to be more English-sounding.

SAINT JAMES pays particular attention to every stage of the production process so that it can offer the best expressions of its agricole rums. From the variety and quality of sugarcane, to the choice of the ageing casks, the complete elaboration is followed with care by SAINT JAMES oenologist Marc Sassier and Master Blender Myriam Bredas.

Saint James Vieux 15 Year Rhum with its impressive age statement is beautifully presented in a collectable wooden case.
