Distillerie de Port-au-Prince is the newest rum distillery in the Caribbean, having opened in 2018 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The project began as a collaboration between the Barbancourt-Linge family (the descendants of the famed Barbancourt rum dynasty) and La Maison & Velier. The fruit of this partnership is a new brand of rum, Providence. The new distillery is rediscovering the methods and techniques used by the Barbancourt Distillery from 1870 to 1946.
The profile is natural and fruity with an intense and enveloping nose of fresh cane, elderberry, and a light tartness. The palate is smooth and mellow, full of pineapple, strawberry, and brown sugar. The elegant finish is full of fresh cane juice, herbaceous and peppery.
