The artisanal distillery Montebello was founded in 1930, it was called at that time the Carrère distillery, name of the hamlet where it is located, nestled in the first reliefs of the plain of Petit-Bourg in Guadeloupe. Taken over in 1966 by the Marsolle family, it is now the fourth generation that operates.
The distillery is proud to assure that more than 90% of its production comes from canes hand-picked by small farmers around its place of production, canes not benefiting from inputs and phytosanitary.
The distillery is one of the last in the Caribbean to use a steam boiler, and is also part of the historical heritage of the island. It is equipped with 2 distillation columns, one copper and the other stainless steel. After a mandatory rest in vats of several months, the rum is slowly reduced with filtered water coming from a source near the distillery (ravine de la soufrière).
The Montebello distillery was one of the first distilleries to have the idea of old rums
