Saint James Royal Ambré

Rhum Saint-James dates back to 1765. When King Louis XIV banned the sale of rum in France, an enterprising priest moved to Martinique and founded Plantations Saint James, where he produced and sold his rum to the settlers in New England.

Rhum Saint James was consumed from Williamsburg to Boston, and became the most popular West Indian rum in the American colonies before the American Revolution, it has been enjoyed by rum connoisseurs ever since.

These rhums are produced from boiled sugar cane juice in a continuous, single distillation process similar to the method used to make armagnac, and then aged in limousin and American bourbon cask for a number of years.

Rhum Saint James is still sold in its trademark square bottles, as it was in the XVIIth century, where they were designed as the most efficient shape for packaging and shipping from Martinique.
