Distilled in 2010, Plantation Venezuela was first aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon barrels in the cellars of Destilería Sofa. The 22 barrels selected by Alexandre Gabriel then made the sea voyage to Javrezac, in the Charente region of France, where the rum was aged for an additional 4 years in Ferrand French oak casks. In the Plantation signature style, this double ageing technique highlights the deeply expressive and complex appeal of this 12-year-old Venezuelan rum. Its assertive personality perfectly reflects the richness of the Venezuelan terroir and the savoir-faire of the experts at Destilería Sofa.
