The Rums are aged for several years in Panama to achieve maturity, then imported at their full, natural alcohol level to preserve aromatic richness.
The Rum is then finished in the cellars of Maison Peyrat, in old oaks casks previously used for ageing Cognac. This impart an incomparable elegance and greater roundness.
Brand & Family History
In 1869 two brothers from Bordeaux, Ernest and Maurice Lasserre, decided to create their own brand of Rum: “MOKO”.
The brothers emphasized quality and tradition when selecting Rums imported from Martinique and Jamaica for MOKO. They perfected techniques of distillation and aging to produce a superior, more satisfying drinking experience.
Their Rums quickly enjoyed great success, collecting numerous awards and medals. However, in the 1960s production and distribution ceased.
In 2017 connoisseurs of great Rum can rejoice in the rebirth of MOKO RUM. Philippe Peyrat and his children, Clémence and Edouard—the direct descendants of Ernest Lasserre—are using their long experience in wines and spirits to resurrect MOKO, updating the methods used by their forebears in the creation of great Rum.
Expressive aromas gradually display notes of cardamom, vanilla and tea.
Several seconds of aeration reveal hints of dried coconut heightened by a touch of spiciness. In the mouth, a bewitching roundness offers exceptional satisfaction to delight connoisseurs of quality Rum.
