When Homère Clément, (born in 1852 in Trinité, Martinique), acquired the Habitation and founded Rhum Clément in 1887; little did he realize that he was creating a lasting legacy. After his death in 1923, his son Charles, and Charles's sons, Georges-Louis and Jean-José, continued what Homère had created at Habitation Clément. Today 18th century Habitation Clément is one of the oldest estates on the island. Bernard Hayot bought Habitation Clément in 1986, and opened it to the public in 1988. During our stay in Martinique, we took a tour of the historic house where President François Mitterrand and President George Bush held a summit meeting in March 1991, and in 1996, the house received a Historic Monument classification.
Today, Benjamin Jones, a descendant of Homère Clément, continues the Clément family tradition by introducing the international market to the Rhum Clément products, which include Rhum Clément X.O., Rhum Clément Cuvée Homère, Rhum Clément Liqueur Créole Shrubb, Rhum Clément Première Canne White Rhum, and Rhum Clément V.S.O.P. Rum.
In January 2007, Rhum Clément will introduce their ultra-premium Rhum Clément Cuvée Homère and Rhum Clément X.O.
It is a liquor of Red Curaçao produced and bottled in Habitation Clément in Martinique.
Medium-bodied liqueur with clear orange tones. The aroma is blend of Curacao orange peel, rum and a exotic tropical spices.
The flavor is much milder than other orange liqueurs.
