Distillerie Depaz, Saint-Pierre

Discover Martinique's rich history of rum production with a visit to Distillerie Depaz, nestled in the grounds of a picturesque sugarcane plantation. The distillery's history traces back to the destruction of all 15 regional distilleries in a devastating volcanic eruption. The Depaz family's single survivor--son Victor--kept the tradition alive by establishing this distillery in 1902. While the staff here doesn't speak a lot of English, you can take a self-guided tour of the grounds using the well-marked trail and informative signage for guidance. Alongside learning about the rum-making process, look out for a mid 16th-century mansion that sits on the trail. With our online itinerary creator, Saint-Pierre attractions like Distillerie Depaz can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Superb distillery! The area is beautiful (between Mount Pelée and the sea!) the tour is done independently, on a road signposted with explanatory panels of different stages of the development of the rums. Unfortunately we could not visit the castle which is closed until 24 October. Large selection of rum (little crush for Golden rum that goes perfectly in the Ti punch! :-)))

  • In the face of Mount Pelée, this distillery is very nice to visit and the staff very friendly. I go once a year since 2008, is a staple of Martinique, especially for those who back north.

  • at the foot of the volcano of the peeled mountain, this distillery is mainly through the site with clear and green view of the Caribbean Sea and the mount pele. the free tour at the heart of the facility is fast, free and guided only by a plan is some explanation signs. the visit of the castle is paid (€5), but closed the day of our visit. the shop is spacious and Nice. possibility of wine tastings

  • A truly excellent self-guided tour with signs in both English and French. The educational journey involves a lot of walking.
  • Attitude and information given is terrible. As if you were really bothering them when you come visit.
  • Superb distillery must see as well as the Castle. The view of Mount Pelée is beautiful and the setting is really top! A few minor drawbacks and that's why I'm taking off a star:-persons who meet the public smile please it seems to me that it's free it costs you nothing and it is pleasant and essential in a place as beautiful! -the mill at Cannes restaurant was closed Saturday 😧 - the floor of the castle was closed for renovation and when asked when can we visit the floor again? The answer: I don't know. These are basic issues that the public will be, at worst, give a fork and be PRO! The visit of the distillery is free. Pay to visit the Castle. It's a beautiful place overall.

  • The visit of the distillery is nice (and free). The tasting is a little less qualitative than in other distilleries. (cups plastic...)
