History
A drink of the day at Loyal Nine back in 2016 where I was inspired by Martin Cate's Abricot Vieux and John Gertsen's Rhum Agricot that he crafted at Drink. Named after Mount Pelée, the active volcano that occasionally destroys rhum distilleries and towns on Martinique. The drink later made the main menu.
