A blend of Pierre Ferrand's oldest reserves, this rum is something else. Selected rums aged for long years in the Caribbean are painstakingly blended by their cellar master at Château de Bonbonnet then matured in small French oak casks for a further 12 to 18 months. Double aging gives the rum an incomparably round and creamy palate. The colour of old mahogany, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary reveals a nose with exotic notes of sugarcane, oaky vanilla and toasted coconut, enhanced by more complex aromas of cocoa, candied orange and cigar box.
To be enjoyed slowly, with or without a cigar. This rum needs a cigar with lots of flavor, but also some balance. The Flor de las Antillas Toro (Nicaragua) makes a lovely paring, with its coffee bean notes, hearty wood and backing sweetness.
Maison Ferrand is the result of the encounter in 1989 between Alexandre Gabriel and one of the oldest winegrowing families in the Cognac region. Alexandre Gabriel’s intention was to breathe new life into the Ferrand cognacs and make it the world’s best cognac. He wanted to maintain age-old, craft-based production methods which were worlds apart from mass production techniques, and sought to bring back to market the true expression of Grande Champagne’s – known as Cognac’s finest region – great terroir.
It is around these core values of authenticity and character that Maison Ferrand built up its business, first with cognac, then with other distinctive fine spirits such as gin whose particular character is based on a unique production method, and our rums which are matured using a very special technique.
Nowadays, Maison Ferrand is a highly regarded company that distributes its fine spirits in more than 40 countries, in some of the world’s most prestigious outlets. Maison Ferrand draws on a dynamic team of people who nurture a passionate interest in what they do.
The Company’s head office and production facility is located amid the vineyards of Charente, in the 18th century Château de Bonbonnet in Ars. Maison Ferrand has made considerable investments to meet its exacting quality requirements and support its expansion: its production facility is one of the most efficient in the region and includes an ultramodern blending hall which was unveiled in 2004.
Maison Ferrand also co-owns Logis d’Angeac, a 100-hectare (247-acre) vineyard in the heart of Grande Champagne, which features a distillery that dates back to 1776.
In addition to its head office in Ars,Maison Ferrand also has an office in Viroflay, in the Paris region.
