The Rhum Saint James Distillery can be found in the Saint-Marie region of the island of Martinique. The company opened a modern distillery with a museum in 2010. All of their rhums are made from the cane juice of locally-grown sugarcane harvested beginning in February into early summer. The cane juice is distilled using column-stills and for this bottling, is aged in oak barrels or vats and blended to proof with local water. Their Rhum Vieux agricole is a blend of aged three year old rums blended to 42 proof. All Rhum Saint James products have been awarded the AOC certification noting that they have met the islands high standards for agricole rhums.
