Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : incolore, peu filtrée.
  • Nose : net, précis. Le premier nez se montre particulièrement herbacé et végétal (canne à sucre). Il devient plus fruité (poire, pomme) et révèle au fur et à mesure des agrumes (orange, mandarine). Doté d’une très agréable fraîcheur mentholée, il se développe avec une énergie insensée sur des notes de sucre de canne.
  • Palate : fine, délicate. L’attaque en bouche reprend en l’intensifiant le caractère herbacé du nez. Du tilleul, de la menthe verte et des fleurs capiteuses (pivoine, jasmin) parfument le milieu de bouche. Puis, à son tour, elle donne la parole aux fruits frais et plus particulièrement à la poire. Sa dimension féminine prend toute son ampleur.
  • Overall : équilibrée, fraîche. Son énergie n’a pas de limites, elle repart à l’assaut du palais et propose des fruits exotiques (ananas, passion), des fleurs blanches (muguet, lilas) et des épices nobles (cardamome, coriandre). La rétro olfaction est d’une longueur étonnante et donne le rôle principal à la canne à sucre. Le verre vide est mentholé et fruité (poire).
The brand

The brand

Traditional Haiti ! These highly artisanal eaux-de-vie, similar to white agricole rums, have long been the most popular drink in the remotest, poorest regions of Haiti. Bottled at natural strength, these three bottlings come from three different distilleries but have aspects in common: pure, well balanced alcohols capable of evolving interestingly and expressively in the glass. The Brazilian have cachaça, the Haitian have clairin!


The Velier company was founded by the Chaix family in 1947. From 1953 to 1983, this small traditional company, located in the port of Gênes, specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, then aged 25, Luca Gargano acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began specialising in the importation of exceptional spirits to be supplied to the most prestigious establishments in Italy. In the early 1990s, Luca Gargano heard rumours of a mythical, quasi-legendary stock of St James Rum that had supposedly been distilled at the end of the 19th century. Eventually he discovered proof that this stock, distilled in 1885 and bottled in 1952, did indeed exist. And in 1991, following lengthy discussions, Luca finally managed to acquire the entirety of this stock, which he then released on the Italian market. These selections of rums have since multiplied and led to the birth of exceptional ranges.
