Plantation Fiji 2005

— PLANTATION VINTAGES —


THE 2020 VINTAGES COLLECTION

In honor of their exceptional character, the bottles of the Plantation «terroir» rum collection are now decorated with special labels worthy of the uniqueness
of each vintage and each country of origin. For the 2020 editions, local birds brighten the labels with their colorful feathers. These exotic images, evoking the iconic illustrations of the Comte de Buffon, are a real treat for the eye.

PLANTATION’S “FOUR-HANDS” PROGRAM

The “Four-Hands” program exemplifies the philosophy at the heart of the brand: the essential preservation of rum cultures and their traditions.
Our vintage rums are the fruit of inspired collaboration between Alexandre and passionate distillers, who work together to select and blend the barrels that will form an ideal unison. Like pianists, they share a keyboard to perform a duet. The goal: To bring out a product’s finest elements and create perfect harmony.

— FIJI 2005 —

Exchanges of cultures and knowledge, innumerable tastings and passionate discussions between Alexandre Gabriel and Liam F. Costello at the Rum Co. of Fiji resulted in this rum.

Distilled entirely in triple column stills and aged for 14 years in Bourbon casks in the mild climate of the Fiji Islands, this rum developed an expansive palette of different flavors. Building on this is Plantation Rum’s proprietary second maturation, for Fiji Vintage 2005 this means one year spent maturing in Ferrand French oak barrels in the House’s cellars in Cognac.

Gabriel and Costello’s curation of casks in Fiji followed by this final ageing process in a continental climate, gives Fiji Vintage 2005 its unique character, aroma and flavor. Each step of the way, both the Fiji and the French teams worked hand in hand.
