The young Frenchman Florent Beuchet started Compagnie des Indes in 2014, quickly establishing himself as one of the more prominent international independent bottlers of rum. Sourcing rums from distilleries all over the world, blended and single barrel versions alike, the bottlings include rum from practically every sugarcane distilling nation.
This Latino 5 YO is one of the entry level bottlings from the Compagnie, consisting of rums from Guatemala (primary component), Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados.
Blended and aged 5 years in the classic ex-bourbon cask.
