Rhum Clément Select Barrel is created from the handpicked finest casks chosen for their depth of flavour and rich character. So fragrant it erupts from the glass with playful tones of rolling around on just-mown grass freshly baked crumble wildflower meadows jasmine incense sticks toasting and grinding your own garam masala and sneaking into dusty old stately home libraries. The palate feels like X.O. Cognac in its refined silkiness but with notes of garden herbs and roasted vegetables to remind you that this is a very serious Rhum Agricole. Our Spirits Buyer wrote the word “impressive” three times in his tasting note for this one suffice to say we think he was impressed. Simply phenomenal value this is a must-try for rum fanatics and an intriguing gift for curious Cognac lovers.

When Europeans stopped buying sugar from the rugged Caribbean island of Martinique the industry collapsed. But the pioneering and entrepreneurial Mayor of Le François Homère Clément stepped in and bought the prestigious Domaine de l’Acajou plantation. Using similar methods to those employed in Cognac he focused his attention on the production of A.O.C. Martinique Rhum Agricole. Most rum is made from molasses (a by-product of the sugar production) but the funkier Rhum Agricole is crafted from free-run sugarcane juice giving it plant-like flavours and more sense of terroir. Think of it as the natural wine of the rum world. Homère Clément is widely seen as the father of Rhum Agricole (although it was his son Charles who perfected the family recipe) and the distillery that bears his name remains one of the finest proponents of this style. Their rhum is only produced for two months a year when the sugarcane is ripe and fresh. This juice is open-top fermented (native yeasts adding to the unique sense of place) then passed through a single-column copper still before being mellowed in gently aerated stainless steel tanks. Domaine de l’Acajou was renamed Habitation Clément. This Créole home is the birthplace of Rhum Agricole and is listed as a Historic Monument by the Ministry of Culture. For true rum geeks visiting and tasting Rhum Clément is like a holy experience.
