Vieux Labbé is produced by the Old Barbados distillery, a branch of the Barbancourt family in Haiti. This rum is produced in memory of Labbé Barbancourt, grandfather of Jane Barbancourt.
To produce an “industrial” rum (this is how rums produced in the islands of former Spanish domination are called) molasses is used, which are often nothing more than sugar beet residues after processing for the production of the latter. This is then fermented, created a must and distilled. Subsequently these can be aged in wood and then created a blend of rums of various degrees of aging in order to find a perfect balance.
Dark amber colour. On the nose notes of ripe fruit, caramel, honey and sweet spices. On the palate it is enveloping, balsamic and spicy, with a persistent finish.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation.
