Distillerie Depaz, Saint-Pierre

(3.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Went to visit with a friend (living in Fort de France) this operation after the positive recommendations. Very well entrenus gardens offer a pleasant break time, with either the restaurant or a small "box" where you can refresh yourself (juice + / €3) and cakes (approx.2, €50) by visiting the distillery. Arrived at the end of the visit to the store, wanted to taste the rum before purchases. Probably we were not interested the gentleman busy with other clients, or even his colleague quite available. After tasting 2 vintages in the same Cup between 2, our request to not waste, we wanted to taste the piña colada sold bottled. The seller went squarely put away his reserve leaving us in front of the counter. Went to tell him that we expected and he told me take care of myself to find someone else... In vain, and politely I get back to him and he replies "Ma'am is not a bar here!" Then perhaps we did not seem to be well-off financially but had intended to buy not 1 but several bottles! For the record, they also sell spices but the market you will find cheaper.

  • The Depaz rhumerie allows a visit of the main buildings necessary for the transformation of the cane sugar in free access. It is informative and the site is really splendid. Shop friendly good value.

  • Unfairly neglected by tourists in favour of the beaches in the South, the North of the island of Martinique offers yet allowed the most breathtaking views of the island. The Depaz distillery visit will end you convince both the setting is absolutely beautiful. So you'll be in the field of the Depaz home with backdrop of the imposing Mount Pelée. A pedagogical and pleasant visit for the eyes, that a small tasting will perfectly well. To see!
