Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 57

Captain's Choice Marigalant Single Vintage 2017 60% vol. 100cl

In stock

This beautiful rhum agricole, originally from the island of Marie-Galante, is made from pure sugar cane at the Distillerie Poisson and matured in a Bourbon barrel since 2017. 

To enhance the original spirit of the island, we used the same Bourbon barrel for this Père Labat Single Vintage rhum and then made the long journey across the ocean.
The wealth of flavors of this island welcomes you in this very limited edition stone jar. We are proud of this fantastic Captain's Choice rum! 

What does Captain's Choice mean?

Captain's Choice is a special limited edition. So there is only a limited number of bottles. It is literally the best rum as only the captain can choose. The difference with the non-Captain's Choice bottles is of course not only in the fact that this rum is still at cask strength and has not been drained. Of course, the captain doesn't tell all the secrets either...!

Origin and distillation

Fresh sugar cane, endless sunshine and vintage working methods allow this exceptional agricole rhum to shine in the Tres Hombres line. Distilled from locally grown sugar cane juice and fermented with naturally grown yeast, this delicious rum was brought on board in Marie-Galante in 2022 and then left to mature further at Tres Hombres. The long journey across the ocean ensures that the special Bourbon taste of this rum is further enhanced.

Design 

The design of this special bottle was made by one of the crew members. The beautiful drawing represents the work of the figurehead of the Tres Hombres.

Bottling

The rum of this Captain's Choice selection was bottled entirely by Stokerij Amsterdam with the help of the Tres Hombres team.

The story

 

The life of the brigantine Tres Hombres began in 1943. At the time still without masts and in a wreck-like condition, she was discovered in 2007 by three friends in Delft, the Netherlands. With an incredible amount of diligence and dedication from many volunteers, she was brought back to life. Within just over 2 years we managed to completely restore the ship and convert it into a sailing ship that now crosses the Atlantic Ocean every year, sails the Northern European seas and covers these long transport distances exclusively with the power of the wind. 

 

Route

From Amsterdam to Marie-Galante and back via the Azores

Map route Tres Hombres

The rum of this Captain's Choice edition was collected in Marie-Galante during the winter trip. The first crew boards in Den Helder on a ship that is in tip-top condition after the refit has been completed. Trainees, and sometimes crew, rotate occasionally during various stops, where cargo and food supplies are also loaded.

Loading/Discharging ports:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Grand-Bourg, Marie-Galante
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
  • Horta, Azores

 

Previously used barrels are loaded in Douarnenez and Baiona and later filled with rum from La Palma and the Caribbean islands. These barrels provide an extra special taste that makes the Tres Hombres Rum unique. The rum of this Captain's Choice edition 57 is matured at sea in the same Bourbon barrel. 

In Santa Cruz de la Palma, Fort-de-France, Marie-Galante, Bridgetown and Boca Chica the barrels are filled with different types of rum. Other products are also loaded on some islands, such as coffee beans and cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic.

Food supplies are stocked during the stopover in Horta on the Azores. Every now and then tea and tuna are also loaded there.
