J. Bally 1998

A 1998 vintage agricole from Martinique, and one of the greatest names in the game.

Named for Jaques Bally who purchased the Lajus Plantation in 1917 which was closed after the 1902 Mount Pelee eruption. After rebuilding the distillery virtually from scratch, and acquiring the neighbouring Habitation Dariste whose equipment was incorporated into the restored Lajus, Jaques began to lay down his spirit in 1924.

J. Bally holds an important place in the history of French style rhum as he was one of the first to adopt the sophisticated principals of distillation and maturation that had long been established in Cognac.

In the 1980s J. Bally was acquired by Remy Cointreau, the original site was closed and production moved to Rhumrie du Simon.
