The Neisson distillery is located nearby the Pelée Mount, a volcano in Northern Martinique. The smallest distillery on the Island, benefit from an exceptional terroir giving the neutral spirit elaborated, their unique flavor and character. Celebrating its 85th anniversary, and always striving for excellence, the distillery continues to innovate with this rum XO, bottled at 48,5% ABV. Matured in French and bourbon casks, this is a blend of rums aged from 9, 11 and 12 years old. Combining innovation and tradition, this rum is generous and complex.
The smallest distillery on Martinique, Neisson resembles a complex kaleidoscope of green and pink houses, as if they were trying to imitate the luscious surrounding vegetation. Since 1931, three generations have succeeded one after the other at the head of the distillery, preserving the skills and expertise of the greatest Martinique tradition. Grégory Vernant-Neisson, in his early forties and currently at the head of the distillery, describes their Martinique Agricultural Rum AOC: “The most important thing to understand about Martinique rum from is that it’s produced directly from sugar cane juice, and not molasses.” Behind the Neisson philosophy lies a great respect for the value of the land and its properties. Because Martinique, with its volcanic soil and climate (particularly in the north of the island where the distillery is located) has a particularly strong influence on the aromatic palette of Neisson Rums and their unique flavours.
