Distillerie Depaz, 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.

  • Beautiful distillery in a beautiful, well-maintained, with view on the sea and at the foot of the peeled mountain. Nothing worth the visit! The tour of the distillery and rum is good. We also enjoyed the juice House and the box to Louisette cane juice.

  • The visit of the factory is very nice and informative. With a little luck you will see even the rum distillery in activity. The excellent on-site restaurant. The shop offers many rums and handicrafts. We already went to do this tour several times and each time, it's a pleasure. Do and redo.

  • 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.
  • 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.
