La Favorite 1986 Cuvee Speciale de la Flibuste
La Favorite is a small family-run distillery, the last in the Port-de-France area. The plantation was initially known as La Jambette, and was renamed in 1851 by new owner, Charles Henry. The distillery hit financial hardship in the latter part of the 19th century and was eventually so badly damaged by a hurricane that it was shut down for twenty years. It was re-opened by Henri Dormoy in 1905, and his family still run it today. The distillery produces between 600,000 and 1m litres of spirit each year. Very much a boutique operation, its equipment is steam-powered, and the bottles are all labelled and wax sealed by hand.
This i a special bottling for visitors to the La Favorite distillery. Distilled in 1986 from pure cane juice without any molasses and matured 25 years exclusively in ex-Cognac casks.
One of 5000 bottles filled in 1994.
