WHITE RUM BAY OF TREASURES FULL SUN 70CL 54°
The Exploitation Agricole du Galion, founded in 1849, is a major player in the sugar production of Martinique. Since the beginning, it has supplied sugar cane to the Galion factory, which is the last sugar refinery still in operation on the island. Its history is truly one with that of Martinique, through the technical innovations, crises and economic booms that have followed one another for nearly two centuries.
The Exploitation Agricole de Galion owns and cultivates 500 hectares of sugar cane. It manages, if we add its lease contracts with small planters, nearly 750 hectares, which makes it the leading producer in Martinique with an average of 25 to 000 tonnes of cane harvested directly each year, and between 30 and 000 tonnes of cane harvested by small growers, or around 5% of the island's total production.
In the past, the company has already produced rum, in particular the Grand Arôme, but the new brand Baie des Trésors is of a completely different nature: It is now a question of the Exploitation Agricole du Galion creating and developing a range of exceptional rums. This project is nourished by a long-term vision: to produce grands crus of rum based on lands of excellence, proven know-how and a constant search for innovation in ageing.
It is a small, somewhat secluded and well sheltered bay, at the end of the Caravelle peninsula, popular with hikers and lovers of the beautiful nature of Martinique. This perfectly preserved little corner of paradise is called Baie du Trésor. A legend says that a treasure from an old shipwreck would hide under its waters. But other treasures, very real, are on the peninsula and around. These are all these small plots, all different and all wonderful, where cane has been grown for more than 170 years. They are the ones who give birth to
This fragmented agricultural white rum reveals wild and fresh tones. Baie des Trésors Plein Soleil opens with astonishing notes of rose, lychee and lemony citrus.
