    Some are emblematic

    -Rhum agricole XO : This aged rum is exclusively made from a blend of rums aged for 9 years in small oak barrels (200 litres).
    -Rhum vieux dillon brut de fut : This is a rum from the lodge that was put into ageing in July 2013, made up of 7 small capacity barrels (200L), not cold filtered and not reduced. It is recommended to discover it at room temperature.
    -White Rum Ti Flè Blé Limited Edition (50%): Ti Flè Blé is a rum that we like to taste in ti-punch. Lovers will appreciate this limited edition, rich in cane aromas and particularly refreshing.
    -Rhum hors d'âge Carafe 2004 (42%) This elegant decanter has been greeted with great interest by connoisseurs, as it contains one of the few new releases from the House of Dillon in recent years. This aged rum, with its beautiful amber colour, was produced in 2004 and aged for 12 years in American oak barrels and then finished in French oak barrels, two stays that allowed it to develop its exceptional aromatic profile.


    A little history
    The Fort-de-France distillery in the eponymous district owes its name to Count Arthur Dillon, who was appointed colonel at the age of 16 and became a general and hero of the American War of Independence. During a stopover in Martinique, he married a cousin of Joséphine de Beauharnais, Laure Girardin de Montgérald, owner of the house which became, by this marriage, the Dillon house.
