Europe’s leading rum production group, BARDINET has built its development on
its capacity to respond to market trends, and changing consumer modes
That success owes nothing to chance but is based on two centuries of know-how, advanced technologies, resources, ambitions and an incomparable focus on quality :
• A stringent, inflexible quality policy that resulted in certification under ISO 9002 in 1994, HACCP in 1996, ISO 9001 version 2000 in 2003, BRC (grade A) for the UK market in 2005 and IFS for the food sector in 2006. BARDINET has implemented a HACCP approach and specifications designed to ensure total quality control at all production stages, from the selection of raw materials to final packaging.
• Constant adaptation of packaging and labelling to meet consumer tastes while maintaining the main themes specific to the world of the product, combining exoticism, elegance or aristocracy.
• A genuine spirit of partnership with the various importation and distribution networks to stimulate the market and develop production in step with consumer demands.
• A permanent spirit of innovation and creativity to cover all the new consumer niches.
1974, BARDINET regrouped its entire business at the Domaine de Fleurenne, in
the heart of a magnificent 14-hectare estate just outside Bordeaux.
Ultra-modern production and bottling installations, vast warehouses for the ageing of rums and brandies, in fact the largest rum cellars in Europe, and a research and quality control laboratory all meet both the most stringent quality requirements and all the latest market requirements.
The complex is today home to:
• 90,000 hl of storage facilities of spirits, with 30% in ageing casks housed in 5 different cellars;
• 5 fully automated bottling lines with a maximum capacity of 14,000 bottles an hour for an annual production of 50 million bottles;
• 12,000 m² of warehouses.
