Fairtrade promotes fairer trading conditions for farmers & workers so they can invest in a better future for themselves and their communities. Fair rum is the latest product launched by the FAIR Spirits team. It is made in Belize, located South of Mexico and East of Guatemala, then shipped to the Cognac area, in France. The rum itself is made from molasses and aged for five years in American oak barrels. The sugar cane used in the rum making process is grown using organic and sustainable farming methods on small farm plots. Each stalk is carefully hand harvested to maximize the yield and protect the land. Sugar cane farmers are all members of the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association (BSCFA) ensuring Fairtrade conditions, which serve to add value to their production. This Association is today certified FAIR TRADE by FlO-CERT / Max Havelaar.
