Maison Ferrand of Cognac, France acquired the historic West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados, which has been producing rum continually since the 19th century. This purchase marks the first distillery acquisition outside of France. The company also owns the Plantation Rum brand with global distribution in 68 countries and produces Cognac and gin at its facility in Cognac, France. Along with the purchase of West Indies Rum Distillery, Maison Ferrand will have access to Jamaican rum, since West Indies Rum Distillery is one-third owner of the National Jamaican Rum Company, Monymusk Distillery and Long Pond Distillery.
