A few words with Anne-François Houzel & Humbert Achard
Who are you ?
We are the founders of Whisper, a four-year old Antiguan rum brand being the result of a passion for spirits. As a matter of fact, one of us was lucky enough to grow up in Antigua while the second would come frequently on vacation. Over the years, we decided to turn this mutual passion into our job.
Can you tell us a few words on the brands you are presenting in Paris ?
Whisper is a traditional rum made of molasses in the unique distillery of Antigua. Our wish to create the most authentic rum we could spurred us to work with a 1932 distillery, using Bourbon barrels and avoiding any adding in the production process. Moreover, the reduction is made in France, using spring water.
