Tasting Notes

The very special first release from Haiti's newest rum distillery, Providence, is the dream of one of rum's most endearing personalities, Luca Gargano. His connection with Haiti goes way back and his friendship with one of that island's rum royalty, Herbert Barbancourt-Linge Jr., was the catalyst for this project. The Barbancourt family, of course, is the most famous name in Haitian Rhum. Luca and his close friend and parnter, Vittorio Capovilla, knew that Haiti could produce some of the best cane in the Caribbean and together the three friends built a gorgeous little distillery in Port-au-Prince. Using all organic Cristalline cane, they produce two distinct rums here. The first is fresh pressed sugar cane, processed on site and fermented immediately after pressing to be distilled on the small copper MÜLLER pot still, Capovilla's favorite. The second, a rum made from a sugar syrup created by Clairin producer Michel Sajous in the highlands of Haiti. They're both distilled to 72% alcohol and finally those two distinct rums are blended and bottled at a beautiful 114 proof. The resulting spirits is fragrant and complex with strong grassy aromas, redolent of ripe banana, stone fruit, green olives and cinnamon. The palate is clean and powerful with a deep minerality and rich weight, although not as intense as the Clairin's that have become famous recently, the potential for greatness is there. We're excited to see this distillery develop in the coming years, this is just the start.
