OUR HISTORY

In the sparkling lofty heights of Laboule, 2700 feet above Haiti’s bustling capital of Port-au-Prince, embedded in a mountainside like a miniature Citadel, remains the famed Jane Barbancourt Castle. It was built by untrained Haitian labor under the supervision of Rudolf Linge, perfume maker from Grasse, France, who's wife was a member of the Barbancourt family. The Castle was for many years a picturesque delight for thousands of visitors every year. As you wandered around the turreted battlements the sight of ancient distillery equipment wafted you back in time… to the days when, in 1765, Louis Barbancourt first began distilling fine liqueurs in Haiti. Inside the Castle was, until the devastating earthquake of 2010, a rare collection of early-carved mahogany furniture, antique alambics… all of it producing a dramatic atmosphere against a backdrop of mountainous scenery. Up till that January 2010, all Berling products were produced in the Château.

Haiti has produced over thirty brands of rum since 1765. Unfortunately today there is only a handful remaining.

Berling S.A. is one of these few remaining labels, producing rum aged in Oak barrels as in true tradition originating in Cognac, France. 

Berling S.A releases only specially selected rums and is proud to offer among these The Vieux Labbé Premium Rum, in memory of Labbé Barbancourt, Grandfather of the late Jane Barbancourt, Great-grandfather of Herbert Barbancourt Linge who is today President of Berling S.A. Herbert Barbancourt Linge has preserved his family’s well kept secrets of rum making from his ancestors and has utilized these and the talent of his Father, Rudolf Linge, renown perfume maker from France, who settled in Haiti during World War II, to produce this rum of excellence offered by Berling S.A.

Berling S.A will continue to maintain these traditions and produce rums of the finest quality for your enjoyment today and in the future.
