As an agriculture focused land, with banana, sugar cane, rum, melon and pineapple, Martinique has rich terroir flavors.
Rum from Martinique AOC (registered designation of origin) is produced by eleven distilleries whose best known are Neisson, St. James, Bally, JM), La Favorite, Depaz, Dillon, Habitation Saint-Etienne Clement, La Mauny, Trois Rivières and Duquesne .
Rum from Martinique is made direct from the sugar cane, unlike most other Rums using molasses left over after extracting the sugar from the canes, that why it taste so gooooood.
White Rum is non aged, amber Rum is mildly aged and old Rum is aged , often in used American Bourbon casks.
Take care not to sample too many Rums before hitting the road back!
