The Plantation Rum Barbados Grand Cru 5 year old is a blend of various old Bajan Barbados Rums produced in a column-still and pot still plants. Following the distillation process the various distillates are stored for maturation in American oak barrels in which bourbon, sherry or whiskey were stored for five years.

During the time in the barrels the Plantation Rum Barbados Grand Cru forms its five year character and its excellent taste and is guaranteed to impressed Rum lovers.
