Shrubb Rum Bielle
Liquor based Rum with orange.
Bielle Liqueur Shrubb is an essential part of the West Indian tradition.
First, produced on the island of Marie-Galante, Shrubb Rum Bielle infused with orange peel is present on all Creole tables at Christmas time.
As per tradition it should be drunk chilled, without ice, so as not to break its lively yet gentle flavours.
Bielle Liqueur Shrubb tasting Notes:
First some citrus fruits explode on the nose. The freshness of the fruits calls for tasting. Then, the palate has a fresh bitter orange and sugar combine to offer this citrus pleasure.
Last but not least, a slight bitterness does not spoil the the long finish that prolongs the orange orange pleasure.
The island of Marie-Galante is less well known than Martinique, but it is also a historic Caribbean rum producing region.
Bielle brand get essence there!
Bielle decided to play the quality card. They make the rums only from pure sugar cane juice (and not from molasses).
The result is an inimitable taste.
Initially, the family farm cultivated coffee. No less than 32 farmers worked on the plantation.
However, in 1826, they decided to replace the coffee plants by a sugar factory.
In 1940, the business was flourishing: 26,000 litres of rum were sold each year. Today, the company, acquired by Paul Rameaux and then Dominique Thierry, has increased its production tenfold, reaching 330,000 litres per year. Production is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner, thanks to the phytoremediation technique: the vinasses are placed in a natural basin containing plants that contribute to the treatment of the residues through evapo-transpiration.
