Rum is one of the most diverse spirits that exists. Each country or production zone is its own unique "terroir" with unique characteristics, a particular soil, traditional growing patterns, and specific techniques. 

Plantation Rum was first introduced in 2003 with the commitment by Maison Ferrand to bring rum to the same quality standards of the best Cognac. The “Grand Crus” of Caribbean rum, Plantation expressions pair exceptionally well with cigars because of their aging and blending processes. 

CC1 recently hosted an exclusive, invite-only cigar and rum pairing event at The Pelican Shop, a unique cigar bar located Downtown, St. Thomas where 20 people were invited to enjoy Plantation Rum Original Dark Signature Cocktail – Planters Punch as well as pairings between Plantation Rum’s Original Dark, OFTD, Grand Reserve, 5 YO and 20 YO and complementary cigars.

Madison Tucker, Brand Manager – Spirits for CC1 led the Plantation Rum tasting alongside the Pelican Shop Cigar Bar’s Cigar Master. One consumer was gifted a Plantation Rum Cigar Box for answering a few questions about the pairings.

“Plantation Rum is perfectly suited for pairing with premium cigars. Our Partners at CC1 USVI, alongside The Pelican shop hosted an amazing event that allowed consumers to truly experience the nuances of Plantation Rum.”
