Distillery Food & Drink
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 world travel planner, 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.

  • 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.
