The house of Tessendier has been distilling eaux-de-vie for over 130 years using Charentais stills in traditional Cognac methods. They now apply their expertise in blending and ageing techniques to a different world of spirits: rum. The Tessendier brothers have created a unique blended rum in accordance with the traditional French method of cognac production -- carefully choosing distillates from different regional terroirs to blend. The four key steps defined by the Cellar Master, from the search for ideal terriors to the final touches, naturally suggest the name of the rum: Saison, the French word for season. No sugar or caramel color is added to any Saison Rum.

Available Products & Tasting Notes

A fruity rum with nuanced notes of vanilla and banana flambé followed by a honeyed finish in a subtle marriage between freshness and unctuosity.


A beautifully elegant style of rum with sophisticated flavors of white flowers, baked pineapple, and molasses cake. The palate is lush and harmonic, filling the whole mouth with its decadent golden flavors & slowly fading into a finish of vanilla & melon.



A powerful, epicurean rum with a fruity and spicy alliance. Once aerated, we can nose a collection of aromas such as candied fruits, prunes, vanilla and lychee as well as spicy notes like ginger and mixed peppercorns. On the palate it appears velvety yet fresh, with a well balanced and long, graceful finish.



Aged at origin primarily up to 3 years in ex-bourbon American white oak casks. Single origin casks sent to Tessendier for blending, followed by 24 months of finishing ageing in France, first in mature, medium grain, French oak barrels to extract slightly roasted and spicy aromas; and finally, and most subtley, the rum is finished in fine grain French oak barrels to create a delicious and harmonious finale.
