Distillerie Depaz, Saint-Pierre

4.1
#1 of 9 in Things to do in 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.

  • All the bus tours from the ships come here. It is soooooo crowded and therefore it is impossible to see and enjoy this place. The washroom lineup is forever and the lineup in the store is ridiculous. ...  more »
  • Rum is the drink of choice on the islands and this beautiful distillery was a gem. The drive to get there was fascinating, as you drive by Mt. Pelee, which was alternately shrouded in clouds and sun. ...  more »

  • Beautiful place. You can take a tour here and go to firm shop where prices are really good. 1l of rhum for 6€!
  • 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.
  • What a beautiful place in the middle of the forest. All clean and tidy a show. Welcoming and friendly. Free guided tour with tasting of their rum. Congratulations ... ...

  • The Depaz distillery is located on the commune of St Pierre. The site visit and tasting is free. For the visit we gives you a plan at the entrance and follow the signs. If you want to visit the Castle you pay 5 euros admission. It takes an hour for the visit and tasting. There is on-site parking.
