By the Caribbean Journal staff
Haiti’s Rhum Barbancourt is launching a new special edition to mark the company’s 150th anniversary, the company announced.
Barbancourt’s Cuvee 150 Ans is a special blend in an art deco bottle developed in partnership with international designer Mickael Kramer.
Each crystal bottle will have its own unique number and a sandblasted Rhum Barbancourt anniversary logo.
While it will initially be available only in Haiti, the company said it would soon be expanding its availability to the United States and Canada.
Barbancourt has been produced continuously since 1862 (coincidentally, the same year that Don Facundo Bacardi started operations in Cuba), with the exception of a period following Haiti’s earthquake in 2010.
