That is quite an impressive resume! Will Ms. Vernant be interacting on the forum? As everyone knows, I love Rhum Agricole, and I might have a few questions for her. I have four varied bottles of Neisson sitting on my shelf,
and it is lucky that we can aquire them here in the states so they can be replenished. Welcome to the Minstry, Mrs Verant!

What a portfolio to carry. Any way as long as it is rum it is a joy to carry.

Welcome on board Claudine. Greetings from the land of liquid gold, El Dorado. Looking forward to many more meetings on rum.

Claudine Neisson Vernant will be answering questions on this forum. There have been a few changes in the AOC regulations and with the EU in regards to rhum agricole which Claudine will explain. She is very busy as you can imagine so don't expect a quick response but she loves helping others understand rhum agricole - what it is, what it isn't, how it's made and questions about Neisson and the history of rhum agricole.

We are very pleased to have Claudine here at the MOR. Many of us, while lacking Hank's knowledge and his access to the longer-aged selections, also love the rhums of Distillerie Neisson, and Rhum Agricole in general.

Like Rum Runner, I'd like to pre thank Cluadine for her time and effort. If you compare the people putting the extra time in you'll see that they match up to the rum companies putting out the greatest rums. Its nice to see that all that hard work pays off and that we get to enjoy it.

So, Ladies and Gentlemen. Shall we begin?

Dear Claudine:

Can you give us an overview of the how the marque "AOC Martinique Rhum Agricole" is evolving? What recent changes have taken place?
