Alc Vol: 44% Vol.
DescriptionHere is a rum launched by André Teissèdre, a Bordeaux merchant who will maintain his name for more than a century in the world of alcohol of all kinds. He founded his business in 1867, and in his catalog, like most merchants of the time, rum: first under his own name with a Rhum Supérieur, a Rhum Galité (equality?), an "old origin” named Supa, then a few other anecdotal rums bottled later, but this time under the elongated surname of A. Teissèdre & Co Successeurs Bordeaux.
A rum, however, will mark its history: the Saint-Esprit rum. Like its counterparts, it will stand the test of time and enjoy a certain qualitative image, coming out in different forms from the 20s to the 80s, just that. One more proof, if needed, that Bordeaux was the capital of rum trading in the 19th century, the place to be.
The bottle presented here dates from the 1960s and offers a higher degree than usual (44 instead of 40°)
