Very rare bottle
Aged in oak barrels for more than twenty years before being bottled.
This unique vintage is one of the world’s oldest AOC (government accredited label of origin) rums. This extra old, agricultural rum beyond classification is the gem of the Saint-Etienne plantation estate, a tribute paid to beauty and sophistication.
MASTER TASTERS NOTE

About The Producer
ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE MARTINICAN SIGNATURES
Cultivate the difference....and set off to explore one of the most beautiful brands of Rhums from Martinique. Habitation Saint Etienne produces unique Rhums with an ancestral knowledge 150 years ago. HSE was modelled after “La Maugée”, a sugar refinery covering over 400 hectares from Gros Morne to Saint Joseph in the early 19th century. The architectural structure, including the master’s house, overlooking the distillery and the old workers’ huts, reflect a typical farm in Martinique.
Martinique’s rhum agricole’s is granted a protected designation of origin. (A.O.C.) since 1996, Martinique is the only rum-producing region in the world to have this status. The A.O.C. label certifies the quality, character and authenticity of Martinique’s rums. HSE has built its reputation thanks to its creativity, in particular in terms of aging and finish. The famous signature has the widest variety of barrels, whether in terms of size, the origin of wood or types of heaters.
HSE also has a dozen cellars where more than 6,000 barrels age. It is also distinguished by the very light filtration practiced before bottling: a bias which allows it to preserve all the aromatic profile and the richness of its rums.
