Saint James Imperial Blanc Rhum

SAINT JAMES
IMPERIAL BLANC RHUM

There’s no better way to appreciate the freshness of the sugarcane that grows in Martinique than through Saint James’s unaged Imperial Blanc.

With its earthy flavour profile, this is a refined spirit backed by strength and intensity.

PRODUCTION

To ensure that the essence of the sugarcane is captured, Saint James cuts its cane between January and July, before transporting it quickly to the distillery, where it’s put through crushing mills to extract the juice, or vesou. This is filtered and added to large, open vats for fermentation.

The resulting cane wine is distilled once in continuous creole column stills, the only pure cane juice rum to make use of this traditional method. Imperial Blanc is then rested for at least three months in stainless steel vats, before it’s reduced to its bottling strength of 40% ABV with spring water.
