Karukera are an Agricole Rhum producer from Guadeloupe. Karukera is the original
Arawak (Caribbean Indan) name for Guadeloupe. Despite the very slick presentation (which caused me to overlook this brand) Karukera have been distilling and producing rhum since 1895.
The Esperence distillery in Sainte Marie – “Certain Origins do not Deceive” is the companies tag line. Karukera have a very nice website unfortunately for me its all in French and resists translation. There is a lot of information there and I can pick out bits but not a lot unfortunately! In all honesty the relatively modern presentation of all the Karukera rhums make me wonder if all this history is entirely correct.
