Rumem Karaiby żyją. Tego trunku nie da się uniknąć. Dostępny jest w każdym sklepie i w każdej knajpie. Kosztuje stosunkowo niewiele, ma masę odmian i jest dużo ciekawszy w smaku niż ten nasz sklepowy.... more »Caribbean rum. This wine can not be avoided. It is available in every store and every bar. It costs relatively little, has a mass of varieties and is a lot more interesting in flavor than the our shop. Martinique there are hectares of sugar cane plantation, and several active distilleries. Most of them can be visited. However, we chose one that works only as a museum-production moved a bit further. Habitation Clement is also a botanical garden and a local art exhibition, and, of course, shop with a hundred kinds of rum and a free wine tasting. In the ticket price is also an audioguide in English. Entrance costs 12 euro/person. The price of rum in the store from 5 euro per half a liter of rum.

Visite agréable avec beaux jardins, la maison typique et la visite de la rhumerie. Dégustation gratuite à la boutique .

Even children aged 9 and 11 years have enjoyed the tour.

Spectacular way to spend a day. Thorough outdoor museum of farm technology, notable trees and plants and modern sculptures scattered around the historical plantation grounds. The sculpture garden is gorgeous and I wonder how it's not touted more in their advertising. The buildings have AC (a godsend) to punctuate your visit with a short film on the distillery and another containing the art museum with two floors of galleries. Each visitor gets an audio guide (available in at least half a dozen languages) and a map with numbered points of interest, from the farm tech to the buildings housing the historical elements of the plantation, including one honoring the visit between Bush and Mitterrand to sign an agreement on an invasion in Iraq (that whole disaster seems to have started here). Anyway, if you go nowhere else on your visit to Martinique, go here!

This is by far one of the best attractions we've seen on our tour of the island. The audioguide and exhibits do a great job explaining the rum-making process, and life on the plantation. There is a small art gallery on site, as well as a sculpture garden, and a free tasting at the end of the tour. Very friendly, multilingual staff.

Heaven on Earth. And a mighty fine rhum tasting room.
Christopher CarlssonApril 27, 2016
Probably one of th best distilling museums in the Caribbean from the stand point of a silent distillery coupled with the original house ( fully furnished) of the owner. A real snap shot in time and a Koji Mo and Steampunk and/or industrial playground with beautiful botanical gardens and art. Highly recommend !!

Wonderful experience! You could really imagine and feel how people worked in the distillery years ago. Absolutely stunning garden with trees from all over the world and the rum tasting is of course the best of all.
