Martinique Rhum Clément has unveiled a limited-edition rhum agricole Rare Cask Collection. Only 10 casks were selected from the cellarmaster’s private collection, all above 15 years of age.

GBH says Robert Peronet, Rhum Clément cellarmaster for more than 30 years, has decided to bring some extra old barrels to the spotlight with the selection of the 10 casks, aged a minimum of 15 years in 200-litre oak barrels.

Having reached optimal maturity, these 10 barrels were bottled in September 2017 at Habitation Clément.

For this first series, partnerships were organised with Rhum Clément’s top clients to allow each of them to select their barrel. A few of these partners made their choice at Habitation Clément in Martinique during a private tasting alongside the cellarmaster.

Each bottle has been numbered and marked with the details of the specific barrel from which the rhum was taken.
