Bologne Ecplise 1 Litre

The Bologne distillery is the oldest in Guadeloupe, tracing its origins back to the Bologne family, sugar farming Dutch colonists displaced from Brazil after Portugal and Spain declared war on their community in the mid-17th century. The protestant family was denied entry to the French catholic stronghold of Martinique, eventually landing in Guadeloupe. The estate is in Basse-Terre, and has always had a distillery, however the production of white rum agricole only took precedence in the late 19th century when sugar production was becoming less profitable. Bologne was bought by Louis Sargenton-Callard in 1930, and it remains in his family to this day. The rum is distilled on two copper column stills between the months of November and August, and is unique in that it is distilled only to around 55-60% ABV, allowing more of the natural cane flavour to be present in the spirit. The distillery began laying down casks to produce aged rum for the first time in 2008, following the installation of Frederic David as cellar manager.

This is a white rum agricole, bottled to commemorate the solar ecplise of 26th February 1998.
