Saint James rums find their origins in Martinique. The brand possesses its own lands which allows it to meet a big part of its needs in cane, as well as a distillery sheltering the most important stock of old rums. The appellation AOC Martinique proves a superior requirement highlighting its link with the terroir as well as its craft know-how. The rhum agricole is made by fermentation and distillation of the pure juice of the sugar cane called “vesou”. It distinguishes itself from some industrial or traditional rum produced from the molasses, the residues of the sugar refinery. The brand offers the widest range of old rums in Martinique and the distillery has always crafted quality rums regularly rewarded in the various international competitions.
