Agricole rum from french Guiana
The agricultural rum Toucan is produced in French Guiana, not far from the equator line, in the east part of the South-American continent.
A very dense virgin forest has been growing for centuries on this ancient land whose emblem is the beautiful toucan, and of which many places have not yet been explored by men.
It is on the edge of this forest that our sugar cane fields are growing and getting their richness and particular flavour. This pure sugar cane juice is then delicately fermented and distilled.
Thus suffused with the spirit to this florid nature which makes the Toucan Rum, a powerful beverage full of luxuriant equatorial flavours that will delight you every time you taste it, that it will immediately give you a taste of these great wild open spaces.

Roun Ti-fé - or what people from French Guiana call '' a small fire'' in Creole.
It is a glass of dry rum, that you drink in one gulp to '' warm your body up'' , and just after that you have to swallow a mouthful of fresh water. This is how Guianese connoisseurs traditionally drink rum.
People drink rum everywhere in French Guiana. They drink it as far as the little stalls hidden in the middle of the Guianese bush and it is always a real celebration, an authentic moment of getting together around the Guianese culture and tradition.
