During the six-month rhum making season the cane, fermentation and distillation varies. When everything is just right, Gregory Neisson puts some of this distillate aside to be bottled as l’Esprit. This spirit of Neisson is bottled at 70% ABV, only a couple of percentage points below the 72% ABV at which it is distilled. Considered the best of Neisson, in 2013 only about 3000 liters were collected for this marque.
