Caribbean Journal Green Rum Company of the Year: Rhum Neisson, Martinique

     You don’t think we’d do a slate of Caribbean awards with rum, did you? As appreciation for rum continues to grow, it’s important for the Caribbean’s most famous export to move with the times and be an example for the spirits world at large. And no rum company has been more laser focused on sustainability and green practices than the boutique rhum distillery in Martinique’s Le Carbet: Rhum Neisson.

      Led by intrepid CEO Gregory Vernant, Neisson now produces the world’s first certified organic rum, a rum project that is now seeing the world’s first aged organic rum, too. When you make rhum agricole, that’s no small feat — but for Vernant, it’s been a passion project – but one he sees as paramount for the future of rum making.
