  • Nestled into a lush valley, the distillery, red, offers the view of travelers. Visit interesting especially for the discovery of the aromas of the rum.

  • We passed on the chance see the distillery on Sunday, December 31, 2017 (we were in the area only this weekend) despite the fact that the tourist documentation indicate that the site is closed on Sundays! The site, to our surprise, is open every Sunday. Nice tour of the distillery in a nice setting, very clean site. Excellent friendly staff. A plus: a discovery room smell of each product that we select and then enjoy. In addition, the rum is excellent!

  • There’s a lot to like about this place but a general caveat that JM is pretty focused on the rum and less about the extras (art museum, sculpture garden etc)like Clement. That said, the location is beautiful; it’s mountainous with a stream flowing through it. The information inside the facility is well done, especially the “smelling” room where one can smell the different notes that color the various types of rum. We took a personal car tour with David which was absolutely worth the extra money. He was able to share details about the banana and sugar cane crops, as well as information about the manufacturing. My one criticism is that the rum products were really edited down. One can buy more JM varieties in the grocery store versus what one can buy at the distillery. Also, I would have loved if the tasting servers were a little more friendly, but we’ll chalk that up to my limited French and their limited English.
  • We visited in December 2017. There were some renovations going on. Location is fantastic between rainforest in a valley. Liked the red elements on pavement and on buildings. Very little info in english!
  • One of the best Rhum distillery in there island and a gorgeous place to visit,one of the best experience I had in the island,a must see.
  • One of the best rum distillery in Martinique
