This 100% natural pot-still Haitian rum was produced by Bethel Romulus in the village of Pignon from three varieties of sugar cane.The distillery was built on a rock and the bottling named Le Rocher because Romulus is a devoutly religious man and so took inspiration from the Gospel of Matthew, verses 7: 24-27 'The foolish man builds the house on the sand and instead the wise man builds it on the rock'.
Le Rocher is produced from sugarcane syrup, not from pure juice. The syrup is boiled in order to preserve all the aromas of the rum while retaining the character of the three varieties of cane. It has tropical fruit notes and can be easily enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

Smith & Cross Jamaica Rum contains only Wedderburn and Plummer pot still distillates, famous for their notes of exotic fruits and spice. The incomparable complexity of this rum delivers a tour de force of flavour that historically made it a cornerstone of many classic rum drinks. The mark of Smith & Cross traces its lineage to 1788 as one of England’s oldest producers of sugar and spirits. Over time, the firm and its partners became prominent handlers of Jamaica Rum, with extensive underground cellars along the river Thames.
