Distillerie Depaz, Saint-Pierre

(220+ reviews on the web)
Distillery
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.

  • The House has the look. Input a large been lined with Royal Palms announced the importance of the area, with in the background the Mount Pelée. The former home of the master has just been completely restored (thank you European funds). It can be partially visited and should soon receive various exhibitions. Guided tour of the distillery of arrow. Catering possibility on site in addition to the snack. Easy access. Probably one of the most prestigious areas with housing to François Clément.

  • Fan of rum the visit is free and very very friendly. But at the tasting we realize quickly who is interrupted. A temperament felt in many places in the North of the martinique. The rum is good but we have not bought for it. We did the tour of all the rhumeries. Depaz disappointed us among other

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

  • Excellent rum, price very interesting with promotions often (ex: bottle of punch (coconut or banana or other...) at the price of 4euros50 instead of 7euros50). The castle of the home is beautiful. A nice walk in the Park (free) that continues on the visit of the distillery (only accessible when the production of rum off). And finally the rum tasting in the shop. Only downside: the home of the ladies who served for tasting. We have tasted only 2 rum and we had the very unpleasant sensation of disturbing them, to believe that we really had not the right to ask to taste.
