Born in Martinique in the Lesser Antilles in the eastern Caribbean Sea, Trois Rivières’ Rhum Agricole is distilled from freshly squeezed sugarcane juice.
In existence for over three centuries, Trois Rivières sugarcane plantation is an integral part of Martinique’s heritage. The saga starts in 1660 when Nicolas Fouquet, superintendent of finances to King Louis XIV, acquires land in Martinique with the intention of building the largest kingdom of the French Caribbean.
The Plantation benefits from an exceptional terroir that retains all the wealth and flavor from the sugarcane and gives Trois Rivières’ rums their character and their rich flavors: over 1,700 acres of land, gently stroked by trade winds, overlook the sparkling sea in the sunniest, far-South part of the island.
From cutting the sugarcane to aging the vintages, Trois Rivières multi-awarded rums meet high standards and rigorous manufacturing methods that go back to the 18th Century and carry the demanding label “AOC Martinique Rhum Agricole”, a designation of controlled quality and origin.
FROM THE CRISPNESS OF OUR WHITE RUM RANGE…
Trois Rivières white rums are an absolute reference. They are smooth with a balanced body and an amazing aromatic array with vegetal, mineral and sea-water notes.
Robust, sweet with primary savours of sugarcane, they reflect the generous climate of Southern Martinique and its unique terroir.
… TO THE SMOOTHNESS OF OUR AMBER RUM RANGE
In strict accordance of AOC standards, our amber rums are matured for over 12 months in large-capacity oak tuns. Slowly and very gradually reduced to 40%, these few months spent in wood impart a superb golden, luminous hue to these delicate rums.
Their taste qualities are particularly smooth: midway between the freshness and bracing effect of white rums and the fullness and complexity of our famous aged rums.
AGING TROIS RIVIERES BECOMES AN ART
Trois Rivières is especially famous for the quality of their aged rums, rare vintages and « Grandes Cuvées ». Our Cellar Master excels in mastering the complex and traditional art of aging and blending, passed down secretly through the generations. Rums are carefully selected and aged for a minimum of three years in oak casks of various origins and capacities. This quest for excellence is reflected in a harmonious and elegant wide range of versatile, robust and complex rums.
