Agricultural and artisan rum
Bête à Feu, our last creation, is a white agricultural rum distilled from single-pressed fresh canes.
The long hand cut canes are transported to the three-roll mill of our A1710 distillery, located at the Habitation du Simon in Le François, Martinique. They are pressed only once to extract their nectar.
Distilled in a copper still with a 7-tray column, Bête à Feu is then slowly reduced at 50.9%.
Bête à Feu and Punch Blanc
Bête à Feu, ‘Bêt à Fé’ in Creole and for those in the know or even ‘Luciole’ (firefly) for the more scientifically minded.
In the West Indies and Martinique, the traditional punch Blanc (white punch) is a real institution and an integral part of the regional culture.
If you drink it upon waking, it will be called ‘decolaj’ or ‘mise à feu’ (take off and ignition). At 10 o’clock in the morning, served neat, it might simply be dubbed ‘feu’ (fire), and at noon, with the addition of a hint of sugar and a twist of lemon, your white punch might be named ‘ti feu’ (li’l fire) or ‘5%*’.
What better than a Bête à Feu to see you through all these tasting experiences?
This white rum combines sweetness for neat consumption, character for a quality white punch, and a burst of flavour to enhance your cocktails.
* ‘5%’, the name used to describe the traditional white punch made from 95% white rum and 5% sugar.
Bête à Feu boasts a bright and clear colour.
On the nose, aromas of ripe pressed sugarcane, flowers and luscious tropical fruits evolve into a mineral character underlined by a hint of citrus. A smooth and intense ensemble.
In the mouth, we are transported by floral and fruity flavours combined with cane juice.
A very round rum that delivers a beautiful lingering finish rich in mineral notes.
