Delve into the distinctive character of Saison Rum Triple Cask 5-Year Barbados Rum
Taking rum back to its roots, the Saison Rum Triple Cask Barbados rum captures and harnesses all the very best qualities of beautiful Barbados as a rum-producing region, finding the delicate balance between richness and intensity and producing an extraordinary depth of flavor and array of elaborate aromas.
This balance has been found by integrating the delicate quality of sugarcane-produced rum, distilled in columns, and the intense, rich flavor of molasses-produced rum, in traditional copper stills. Bringing together these two elements favors a flavor-heavy rum that can be enjoyed neat, with every sip revealing a new aspect of the Triple Cask’s incredibly complex character.
Saison rums have been aged for a minimum of 3 years in American white oak casks on the island of Barbados itself. Its tropical temperament creates unique oxidation that can't be replicated anywhere outside the Caribbean.
This heat and humidity is both a blessing and a burden, so in order to keep the "Angels share" from being too large, the rum is then transferred to European soils and blended by Cognac Master and artisan Jerome Tessender, who works tirelessly to carefully concoct a distinctive aromatic profile, whether it be floral, fruity or spicy.
The rum is then left to mature in French oak barrels in the stunning Cognac-producing town of Jarnac, producing wonderfully warming toasted and spicy notes over the course of 24 months. Finally, when the rum has voyaged across the globe and finished its majestic maturation, it’s reduced to 46% and most importantly, no sugar is added.
This unique distillation and maturation process gives this Triple Cask Barbados beauty its distinctive character and depth of flavor.

About Distillerie Tessendier
This is a Cognac house that combine both modernity and tradition; drawing upon centuries of savoir-faire to safeguard their innovative spirits and longevity. Their roots date back to the heart of the Cognac region and to the very history of France itself. In 1862, the son Gaston Tessendier acquired the Buisson estate and other parts of land, which soon became the Distillerie Tessendier estate.
Gaston was the first to learn the secrets of the vines, with his son following in his footsteps. Over the years they learnt about ageing the Cognacs and distillation, and the third generation of Tessendiers were really the first to master the art of blending Cognac effortlessly.
Now in the hands of the fourth generation, Jerome and Lillian, they continue to innovate and drive forth a vision that is unique, driven by emotions with each of their eaux-de-vie, and create a series of multifaceted brands under the overarching label of Distillerie Tessendier such as Cognac Park, Cognac Campagnère, Cognac Grand Breuil and the latest Saison Rum, which sees the Tessendier brothers applying their savoir-faire to the art of rum.
