Meticulously selected by the Cellar Master, Mezan vintage rums capture the depth and diversity of the Caribbean and offer a taste of its purest, most authentic flavors. Distilleries old and new, some founded centuries ago, others no longer in operation; all are subject to the Cellar Master’s discerning eye.
He tirelessly travels throughout the region, seeking out its hidden treasure; untouched rums, artfully crafted from a single year’s distillation by a singe distillery.
Unsweetened, uncolored and only lightly filtered, these vintage rums represent the finest, truest expression of their producer and country of origin. Once the Cellar Master has discovered a particularly exceptional rum, he sets it aside for maturation. Under his patient watch, the rum slowly ages in ex-bourbon oak casks until it has reached the height of its potential. It is then immediately bottled, one casks at a time, thereby preserving its singularity and ensuring that an unforgettable sensory experience lies within every drop of Mezan.
|Each Mezan aged rum, from the Caribbean, is unsweetened, uncolored, and only lightly filtered and aged in ex-bourbon casks.
