St James Rum and Cocktail Recipes

By In Cocktails
Saint James Rum is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year with a special commemorative bottling and a host of festivities on its home island of Martinique, not that I’ve been invited to Martinique or anything…

Saint James Rum is one of the oldest rum brands, with the plantations first producing rum in 1765. From the outset the brand was a pioneer in its category, being the first rum to create vintage specific blends, and designing an innovative square bottle in order to maximise storage and minimise breakage on the long sea-voyages to its original export markets.

Today the iconic Rhum Agricole is still produced in Martinique, which has the only rum AOC (appellation controllée) in the world, and more precisely in Sainte-Marie, on the East coast of the island. The special Saint James Cuvée 1765, a blend created in homage to the original 1765 style, is the epitome of the quality of the products it offers.

    Mmm, I do like the sound of the Tropical Kamasutra (steady on, missus!) – sounds like something that needs to be enjoyed on a beach with the waves lapping at your toes ;o)
