The most precious drops from traditional distilleries were savoured for our Bonpland Rum on a journey of discovery through the Caribbean and South America. In Europe, this treasure trove of exceptional types of rum from the New World is given the perfect refinement of maturing, developing its particular character on its long journey.
The top Burgundies that are originally matured in casks and the harsh climate of the range of hills between the Saar and the Mosel combine to produce the uniqueness and fruity elegance of our rum. To underline its character, we use absolutely no sugar or colourings in the making of our rum and do not subject it to cold filtration. In this way we combine the originality of the New World with the best of the Old World in our Bonpland Rums.
When Aimé Bonpland’s father heard of the birth of his son in his vineyard, he let out a cry of joy: “Grace à Dieu, un bon plant!” (Thanks to God, a beautiful plant!). The first name Aimé is a symbol of an intimate love for nature and the world of plants.
In 1799, the French physician and natural scientist embarked on an epoch-making journey of discovery through America together with Alexander von Humboldt, the German Columbus. We have Bonpland’s notes and discoveries to thank for thousands of new plant species and animal genera.
Bonpland, who tended Napoleon’s imperial gardens and later taught as a professor in Argentina, summarized his findings in literary form. His drive for new discoveries in both the Old and the New World makes Aimé Bonpland the namesake of a rum that connects the greatest treasures of distant distilleries with the artistry of old German manufactories.
