The Ten Cane distillery was created by LVMH to produce pure cane juice pot still rum for the US market. The brand never really found its audience, the multinational decided to tear down the distillery only a few years after its grand opening. Its name, Ten Cane, comes from the idea that it takes 10 sugar canes to make a bottle of rum. You will have understood that the distillery is now closed and thus its rums are very rare pot still rums 100% pure cane juice (Agricole style). 80% tropical ageing. Sugar =0G/L; ex-Bourbon cask.
Compagnie des Indes rums are produced with great care and elegance. The idea was brought to life in memory of the former East India Company from the seventeenth and eighteenth century that selected rare commodities from distant continents and imported them to their countries. Like them, we select only the best qualities of rum from all over the world and import these to Europe.
No matter if we speak about single casks or carefully selected blends we always focus on bringing out the character and qualities of each local origin. Florent from Compagnie des Indes roams the world constantly and amazes us with his Rum discoveries. One feels he does it for his own pleasure because his selections have in common, elegance, lightness, naturalness, and authenticity. What rum always should have been, but rarely is nowadays, inflated by suspicious aromas and colours.
