Why Grande Bagosse?

‘Bagasse’ represents the residual fibers or peels left over after fermentation of wine or sugar cane. Formerly, some would mix this bagasse with water, reason why it was called commonly the ‘wine of poor’ or Bagosse. In a not so distant past, when the price of alcohol became too high, our ancestors created alcohol with the means they had.

The people that were making their own alcohol were commonly referred to as the ‘’bagosseux’’. This was the case in Petit-Paquetville where there were three “bagosseux” competing for how to make the best moonshine.
