Tres Hombres

#13 Old Bajan VIII

This Old Bajan rum is made from Caribbean molasses on Barbados by the Foursquare distillery, where the Seale family’s experience in making rum dates to the 1820’s. No sugar, no caramel, zero additives is his approach to an honest, strong, but very fine Caribbean rum.

Country of origin Barbados

FREE FROM BITTERNESS

On the bottle, you see an illustration of fig trees because the Old Bajan VIII rum is named after the “bearded fig trees” in Barbados. The nose it is sweet like fruit. On the palate it is sweet with a delicious taste of fruit and molasses. No sugar and caramel is added, and the day before filling this 8-year old rum in the barrels for the 3 months’ voyage, they still contained biodynamic wine from the Loire area, so the aftertaste of this old Bajan has an amazingly spicy and unique character, like the island itself.

About the producer

Tres Hombres

Welcome on board with Tres Hombres. This is a story about three friends, Arjen, Andreas and Jorne. In 2007 they began a shipping company. While sailing on the Dutch barque, they saw the beauty and power of great sailing ships that use only the wind as a means of propulsion, so they decided to create the world’s first modern “Emission Free” shipping company, based in the Netherlands.

The company has grown into what is now known simply as “Fairtransport”. Tres Hombres has been sailing emission free since December of 2009. She maintains a sustainable shipping route for general cargo between Europe, the Islands in the Atlantic, the Caribbean and America. In addition to her capacity for 35 tons of cargo she can accommodate a crew of seven professional sailors and eight trainees.

Fairtransport: The concept
Ships sailing under Fairtransport flag are transporting exotic products which are organic or crafted traditionally. Tres Hombres transports products such as olive oil, coffee, wine and of course rum. Their primary goal is to raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution created by the modern shipping industry and to affect positive change in the way goods are shipped around the world. Tres Hombres makes foreign products available in the only sustainable way: by the power of the wind. Their vision is to have a world where all ocean transport happens under sail. Tres Hombres’ point is that consumers are responsible for what they buy or transport. Therefore, they offer a sustainable choice.
