Trip Planner: Caribbean / Martinique / Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre / Saint-Pierre / Distillerie Depaz
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.

Accueil très sympathique mais j,ai été déçu par la visite extérieure : même si tout est bien entretenu cela manque d informations voire d un audioguide. J avais visité la distillerie Clément: dix fois... more »Very nice but j, was disappointed by the outside visit: even if everything is well maintained that lack of information and even d an audioguide. J had visited the distillery Clément: ten times better!

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.
Sweety EJune 6, 2017Superb 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.
Thierry CanoMay 4, 2017Beautiful distillery has visit as well the Castle... the visit of the distillery is free, paying for the Castle €5 for 1 adult it is often promotions on the rums to the walleye a taste in Ti punch rum shop... a killer
Hubert BarabanApril 3, 2017The visit of the distillery is nice (and free). The tasting is a little less qualitative than in other distilleries. (cups plastic...)
