About the Producer

Maison Ferrand Owner and Master Distiller, Alexandre Gabriel works closely with local distilleries crafting the rums, where they are left to age in warm Caribbean cellars for the initial part of their life. During the secondary process, the rums are exported to Cognac where they undergo a series of age old Cognac making techniques. This centuries old application is known by the French as 'elevage' and the process used is unique to Plantation. Vibrant, full flavoured Caribbean rums, finished with French finesse - which one will you fall in love with?

Passionate, curious, refined taste for beauty, Alexandre Gabriel is a tireless entrepreneur in search of perfection. An artisan businessman, he delivers the best product by implementing the most advanced and precise production methods. He knows that a great cognac, a superior rum, is above all a powerful emotion to be shared. Alexandre Gabriel applies the discipline and passion of ancient craftsmen, artisans, and goldsmiths to his rum and cognac.

In 1989 Alexander Gabriel discovers Maison Ferrand, one of the oldest spirit brands in the Cognac region. The reputation of the House is indisputable but sales are lagging. An immediate crush grabs hold and Alexandre Gabriel dives in with exuberance to the details and craft of Cognac production.

Pure Dragons Fire.

We bought this as a wee treat. We do love good rums and Aitkens always has such a variety.
The first smell gave us fruit, sugar and molasses
The first taste went from one second of beautiful ly juicy raisins to a slap in the face heat that was the 69% proof. Hence the title.
We added just a smidgen of water,just enough so it didn't bite back and there we had a fantastic little night cap.
Well done Aitkens, you've done it again.
