French Oak & Cognac Barrel Finish
Founded in 1886, Rivière du Mât is one of the rare distilleries in the world to produce traditional rum as well as Agricole style rums. The distillery is equipped with two column stills: one that undergoes single distillation and produces aromatic rums and the other undergoing triple distillation to produce a lighter style rum. The rum is then aged in a majority of French oak barrels and overseen by the master distiller Jean Grondin, and assisted by Christian Vergier, one of the leading experts in spirits aging. This bottling was selected for the collection of La Maison du Rhum, which reunites exceptional products from the most reputable distilleries in the their respective countries
