For more than 30 years, Plantation Rum Master Blender Alexandre Gabriel has explored the world of rum and its various terroirs in search of the best casks. Passionate about the history, heritage and particular production methods of each rum-producing country, he travels to the most prestigious distilleries in the Caribbean, Latin America and Oceania.
The prize of these scouting voyages: the Plantation Rum Vintage Collection, a selection of exceptional rums, bottled in small batches from the same year of distillation.
