plantation rum Extrêmes No.4 Collection

Plantation launches Extrême No.4 Collection

01 October, 2020

Plantation rum is set to release its Extrême No.4 Collection consisting of eight rums to selected global market this October.

Now into its fourth iteration, it is the most successful, limited edition series of rums launched by the brand historically and each rum is selected by master blender Alexandre Gabriel.

All of the rums undergo a double-ageing process, whereby barrels are transported for 30-40 days by boat, which is said to increase the liquid’s intensity as a result of extreme conditions.

The first part of the rum’s ageing takes place in tropical Caribbean weather in bourbon casks before spending at least one year in Ferrand French oak casks in France.

The UK will go live with Plantation St Lucia 2007 at 16:00 on Friday 2 October from Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange (RRP: £150).
