Haiti quake doesn’t stop rum distiller

Posted on January 21, 2010 by William M. Dowd

My Coral Gables, FL, friend Robert A. Barr, publisher of the Gifted Rum Guide, passes along this information:

“Here’s the news from the Gardere family at Barbancourt in Haiti:

“Our reporter Hank Tester reports from Haiti that Barbancourt has suffered minor damage at their distillery and aging warehouses from the recent earthquake activities.

“There is plenty of aged rum to continue operations, although it’s a struggle for employees who have been adversely affected to come to work.

“The company believes they have enough stock to remain viable for some time while they work hard to get their operations restored to full capacity soon. At the present time, there is plenty of Barbancourt Rhum in the United States and no shortage is anticipated.”
