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.
Tasting Notes Open on the nose with fruits compote, litchi and a pinch of spices. The mouth has fatness and exotic cooked fruits and smooth spices aromas and revealling, in mid-palate, cinnamon, nutmeg and sandalwood aromas. Long and delivate bitterness on the finish.
