Rhum Barbancourt Réserve Spéciale


History

In 1862, Dupré Barbancourt, a native of Charente in France, put the finishing touches to a recipe for rum that still bears his name today. Using his homeland's double distillation method usually reserved for the very finest cognacs, he distills a unique product of incomparably quality which will regularly be recognized and receive the highest international distinctions, even today.

Rhum Barbancourt is one of the most decorated rums in history as witnessed by the gallery of awards featured on this site. You will find some of these medals printed on our labels, confirming the exceptional and unequaled character of this rum.

Mr. Dupré Barbancourt takes Nathalie Gardère as wife but the couple has no children. At her death, Nathalie Gardère leaves the company to her nephew, Paul Gardère, who will direct the company's destiny until 1946. La maison Barbancourt incorporates itself as a limited simple partnership in 1932. Rhum Barbancourt's distillery, located on Chemin des Dalles in Port au Prince, remains there until 1949. At Paul's death, his son Jean Gardère takes up the baton, furthering the family's tradition until 1990. Entrepreneur and visionary, Jean Gardère was the instigator of Rhum Barbancourt's modernization. In 1949, he decides to relocate the distillery to the Plaine du Cul-de-Sac on l'Habitation Mouline, near Damien, where it is located to this day.

Work began in 1949, and in 1952 the plant began producing cane juice from the sugar cane grown on its own plantation on the Domaine Barbancourt. This decision propelled the company from small cottage industry to true industrial production.

Thierry Gardère takes over the company at his father's death in 1990 and continues to direct it today. Société du Rhum Barbancourt's ever-growing distribution network is now solidly implanted in over 20 countries.

Originally, in 1862, the Maison Barbancourt did not produce its own cane juice; it distilled its rum from clairin, sugar cane juice, purchased from the limited number of suppliers who's product met Monsieur Barbancourt's rigorous selection criteria, for example l'Habitation Prince, a former holding of the Prince of Rohan.

Today, over 600 hectares of land are exclusively dedicated to sugar cane cultivation for Rhum Barbancourt, counting the 20% of which are on Domaine Barbancourt's own plantations. Société du Rhum Barbancourt employs 250 persons and its direct and indirect rum production activities are responsible for the livelihood of 20,000 persons. Despite the modern installations, Société du Rhum Barbancourt, the eldest of Haitian industries, continues to produce rum in the purest tradition in line with every point in Monsieur Dupré Barbancourt's original recipe.
