Passionate and curious, Alexandre Gabriel is a tireless entrepreneur who never stops in his search of perfection. An artisan, farmer and businessman, he delivers the best product by implementing the most advanced and precise production methods, and knows that a great cognac or a superior rum is above all a powerful emotion to be shared.
In the 1990s, Alexandre Gabriel combed the Caribbean in search of the best rums of the region. Plantation was born - a craft range of rums from the great terroirs of the tropics. Fifteen years of dedicated rum-making later, in 2012, Alexandre was awarded 'Master Blender' in the World’s Best rum awards, won the prestigious 'Golden Barrel Awards' and was named 'Distiller of the Year' by The American Institute.
His latest project, Plantation Xaymaca Special Dry, launched in 2018 has so far picked up seven top awards including ’Best Spirit’ at the Berlin Mixology awards, ‘Rum Category Winner’ at the UK Class Awards and scored 97 points in both the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and Wine Enthusiast.
