This Bally 1939 is one of the first vintages marketed by the Martinican distillery, offered in a 70cl bottle and grading 45°. Living proof of Jacques Bally's avant-gardism concerning the aging of agricole rhums of the time, this bottle is a vestige of another era.... According to the information on the bottle, it is is a version of the 1939 vintage which would have been bottled in the 1970s.
Stronghold of Bally rums, Habitation Lajus was bought in 1917 by Jacques Bally who decided to renovate it and build a distillery on the remains of the small sugar refinery. Installing a steam engine and a Creole column that he designed himself, he began to produce rum which he vintaged in 1924.
