J Bally Ambre Rhum is a brand of Rhum Agricole produced in Martinique, an island in the Caribbean. Rhum Agricole is a style of rum made from freshly squeezed sugarcane juice, rather than molasses like most other rums. These rums are most commonly made in the French speaking parts of the Caribbean and South America.
Bally Rhum was first produced in 1924 and can be distinguished by its square bottle. Bally Rhum Agricole enjoyed a long and successful history until the distillery was closed in 1989. However, the rums of Bally live on: the rum is now made by Distillerie Simon who have been producing rum on Martinique since 1862. Distillerie Simon is one of only 7 distilleries left on Martinique and it is also the largest producer. The old Bally distillation column has been moved to Distillerie Simon where they ferment the fresh cane juice and continue to produce Bally Rhums. These fine Martinque rums continue to win numerous awards and accolades, cementing its reputation as one of the finest rums in the world.
Bally Rhum is made using traditional methods and aged in oak barrels, resulting in a unique and complex flavor profile. The sugarcane used in the production of Bally Rhum is grown on the hills of Martinique, which is known for its rich volcanic soil and tropical climate, providing the ideal environment for producing high-quality sugarcane. There are two main types of rum, those made from molasses and those made from sugar cane juice. Bally Rhum is made using traditional methods and aged in oak barrels, resulting in a unique and complex flavor profile.

It takes approximately 100 kgs of sugar cane to produce 10 litres of Rhum Agricole and no rum with the designation of origin “Martinique” can be sold with an alcoholic concentration lower than 40%.
