    Crafting Distinctive Rhums For Over 70 Years

    The brand Rhum Damoiseau was established in 1942, when Roger Damoiseau bought the existing Bellevue Distillery and renamed it. Today, Rhum Damoiseau is run by Roger’s grandson, Hervé Damoiseau. Over the years, the family made the necessary investments and transformed the old tiny distillery into a producer of world-class rhum agricole. (Rhum agricole is the French term for rum distilled from freshly squeezed sugar cane juice rather than from molasses.)

    The Damoiseau family has been making high quality rums for over 70 years now. Rhum Damoiseau holds 50% of market share in Guadeloupe. They are distributed in France and also exported to more than 40 countries.

    Rhum Damoiseau are made with 100% first-pressed aromatic and flavorful sugarcane juice, that is extracted by pressing quality estate grown sugarcane. This process is inspired by the enjoyment of great brandies, more particularly by the Armagnac of southwestern France.

    After the distillation, the rhum is stocked in oak barrels that have previously been used for bourbon. While the rhum is stocked in oak barrel, some aromatic components evaporate. Given the hot climate in Guadeloupe, the evaporation is important. Two liters of white rhum are required to get one liter of 10 years aged rhum. Thanks to this maturation in oak barrel, the rhum takes notes of wood and is given its light brown coloration.

    Even the white rhum is aged 6 months in oak barrel before being bottled, while the VSOP is 4 years aged at minimum.
