ABOUT SAINT JAMES
Saint James Rum was founded in Saint-Pierre de la Martinique in 1765, at the hands of Reverend Father Edmund Lefebure who also happened to be a rather skilled alchemist. The priest crafted a cane spirit, and began shipping the rum to British colonies in North America. He named the rum Saint Jacques as a tribute to Jacques Dyel, which later became known as Saint James in order to sound more familiar to English speakers.
