Guadeloupean rum, or Rhum as it is called, is treasured by both locals and true rum connoisseurs for the high quality and signature taste, results of time honored distilling traditions still used today. Rhum Agricole is especially coveted for its pure, unique and intoxicating flavor as it is distilled from fresh sugar cane juice, as opposed to molasses.
