Barbados in the Caribbean is home to the phenomenal Plantation Barbados Rum XO 20th Anniversary. It is produced by the French company Ferrand who also specializes in the production of Cognac. Locally grown sugar cane is the basis for the premium Rum of the company. The warm Caribbean climate gives this area an extensive cultivation of high yield sugar cane, which is important for both sugar production as well as for Rum production. Molasses or sugar cane juice is further fermented after harvesting and is then ready for the distillation process.
The Plantation Barbados Rum XO 20th Anniversary is a blend of various very old Bajan Barbados Rums produced in a column-still and pot still plants. For the subsequent ripening, the selected quality Rums are first stored up to 13 years in bourbon barrels in the Caribbean before being transferred to small French oak barrels, where previously sherry or cognac were aged. The second two and a half year maturation phase takes place on a property of the manufacturer Ferrand in France - the whole process is then called double-aging. Thus the extraordinary Plantation Barbados Rum XO 20th Anniversary gets a distinctive deep aroma with extra class.
The Plantation Barbados Rum XO 20th Anniversary is as a result of the occasion of the company and brand 20th anniversary - and the quality of the excellent Rum is paying off.
