TRINIDAD 2009


Vintage series 2020

Description


Limited to just 24 casks, the exclusive Trinidad 2009 expression was chosen from the cellars of Trinidad Distillers Limited by Alexandre Gabriel, Plantation Rum’s Master Blender, and Andrew Hassell, General Manager and rum historian at West Indies Rum Distillery. The next destination is already very eagerly awaited.

Continuously distilled in multi-column stills, Plantation Trinidad 2009 also stands out for its maturation process. This new limited edition benefited from a signature double ageing process inspired by a 300-year-old technique updated by Alexandre Gabriel, an authority in the art of ageing. This ancestral method is inseparable from the identity of Plantation Rums.

This superb rum was first matured for 11 years in 200-liter ex-bourbon casks in the Trinidadian distillery’s cellars, built entirely of red bricks and particularly admired by Alexandre Gabriel and Andrew Hassell. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the bricks make it possible to maintain a cool temperature and, as a result, to exert greater control over the ageing of the cane eaux-de-vie. Plantation Trinidad 2009 was then treated to an additional one-year ageing period in Javrezac, in France’s Charente region, in 400-liter French oak barrels from Maison Ferrand.
