Tasting Notes

Batiste Rhum is the first rhum agricole to be imported in bulk and finished in the United States. Rhum Agricole is traditionally a product of the French Caribbean, defined by its production location and methods: its terroir. Batiste Rhum represents an evolution in this type of rhum by sourcing the best rhum from the French Caribbean and using California innovation to produce a light, clean, and versatile cocktail rum. Batiste sources all-natural, non-GMO and pesticide free rhum from a distillery on the tiny, remote island of Marie Galante. They use only fresh pressed free-run sugar cane juice, not the molasses typical of most rum production. The distillery, unique in all of the Caribbean, uses solar & biomass fuel to run its operations and converts all waste into fertilizer. Together with a carefully crafted supply chain and minimal processing in California, the finished product remains carbon-negative at the end of its production cycle. They've taken everything into account to minimize the environmental impact of their production from using the lightest, strongest bottles available to making their bottle tags out of post consumer product and loaded with seeds of mint and thyme so you can plant them directly into your yard for cocktail garnishes. The light and clean nature of this rhum means it mixes beautifully with fresh fruit juices, tonics, and even calorie free mixers like La Croix.

    The latest release of this spectacular rum is the best yet. It still has all the power and complexity that characterizes Rhum Agricole (a rum tradition and style distinctive of the French West Indies) but in the latest release they've used a special vacuum still (the kind used in Sake production) and the results are astounding. This rum initially impressed me with its polish, vibrancy, and smooth mouthfeel, but now with amplified aromatics and layers of flavor on the palate it is not only one very distinctive rum, but mouth-wateringly delicious too. Lychee nut and rich tropical fruits leap out in the nose, with subtle hints of cane grass and flowering herbs. The palate fans out like a peacock's tail, intense yet never overwhelming as it winds down towards a smooth, glassy finish. The superiority of Batiste's sustainable grown, hand-cut, organic cane and natural processing methods is evident in the fine quality of this Agricole. Sip neat, on the rocks, or in a classic Ti’ Punch: 2 oz. Rhum Agricole, squeeze of half a lime, cane syrup to taste, 1-2 ice cubes (optional).Combine and serve in an old-fashioned glass or tumbler garnished with a lime twist.
