SAINT JAMES rum is produced by the fermentation of pure cane juice followed by distillation on Creole columns. This method, recognised as A.O.C Martinique rum, gives SAINT JAMES rums a multitude of aromas, with subtle, fruity bouquets perfectly adapted to ageing in oak casks. No sweetening agents are permitted.
Martinique is the only French overseas department benefiting from an A.O.C. for its rum.
This appellation obtained in 1996 reflects the unique character of Martinique “agricole” rum, expressing the close link between production, terroir and generations of skill and knowledge.
To qualify for “Rhum agricole A.O.C Martinique” status, the rum must be prepared from sugar cane grown in an area authorised by the A.O.C. regulation (only 23 municipalities in Martinique). The A.O.C. recommends the period for harvesting and the sugar cane yield per hectare. Production is also regulated by the pressing of the sugar cane and the distillation method used.
