Few things are as closely tied to Caribbean culture as rhum. And no, that’s not a typo. In fact, rhum is a specific form of rum — French to be exact — that can only come from a specific region and distilled from fresh-pressed sugar cane juice rather than fermented molasses.

And that’s exactly what the good folks at Batiste did with their exquisite Rhum Ecoiste that’s eco-friendly, all natural, and carbon negative in production thanks to their solar-powered and biomass-fueled distillery. Light in body and pleasing to the palate, Batiste Rhum Ecoiste is distilled on a Caribbean farm on Marie Galante that’s been growing sugar cane since 1769 before it’s shipped to California where it’s finished and bottled for our enjoyment. Each batch is made with only three simple ingredients — sugar cane juice, yeast, and water — yielding a clean, sugar-free, and versatile spirit ideal for mixing cocktails under the summer sun without the hangover to follow.
