From their website it appears that their main business is making molasses-based traditional rum. Again, according to their website, "In the bosom of The Isautier Distillery, the ancient cane crushing mill, dating from 1850, is restored to life every ten years: the mechanical monster revives the ancestral procedure for the production of an agricultural rum of great character."

I haven't tasted Isautier's rhum agricole but I my expectations wouldn't be as high as they would be for a rhum produced by a distillery that makes rhum agricole every year. The processes of making rhum traditionnel and rhum agricole require very different skills.

This rhum agricole will be in short supply since there isn't a lot of it made.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
