We went to three distilleries and this one felt the most like a museum. Interesting to see the old equipment and old ads. We probably only spent 30 minutes here as the factory was not in operation this month.

Smells wonderful! Free tasting, but we did not get the tour since it was closed that time of year (december) Why it did not state this on the internet or maps/brochures, i dont know, very frustrating

Great spot to go see dont get to excited about being welcomed. It not that they are not nice its just the language differences they dont want to try and translate. I would go to Rhum J.M to get a better feel of a distillery.

this museum is set at what appears to be an old house-creole style. it has beautiful park like surroundings. you are free to roam the property. there are signs throughout that lets you know the process to distill rum. some are only in French some are French & English. there is free tastings & "gift shop" that basically only sells the rum. don't bother with the restaurant next door-unless you are very hungry. I was not impressed by the restaurant. I think there may be a charge if it is in season & then they show you a guided tour of the rum in process of being distilled. There is sugar cane across the street & I think back behind the "factory" building.

The best rum in Martinique!
You can even take a train that goes through the sugar cane fields and your guide tells you everything there is to know about producing rum.
I would highly recommend all visitors to go to this distillery. It has a beautiful museum in a colonial building that has been restored.
There is even a restaurant next to the distillery if you wish to have lunch.

the museum with a lot of ancient equipment is interesting. nice and free. But except the not recommendable restaurant nearby you will find no place for eating, disadvantageous before a degustation. Anyway the rhum tasting is disappointing because the native staff there seems rather demotivated and not customer-oriented: no smile, only mumbling French, no suggestions, no ideas

We enjoyed visiting the museum. The video is in French only. The tasting room has friendly staff. The train ride does not go very far. The guide speaks only in French and there are frequent stops to provide an explanation of sugar cane fields, and various local plants. It was a long amount of time for a very short distance.

One wonders whether the museum is just a come-on for the rum store, but no matter. The museum is small but well done (Much is in English). There is also a sugar cane train that’s lots of fun. It does not run every day, so call ahead. Plus there’s the huge rum store. Prices are lower than elsewhere, esp. lower than Duty Free. An essential visit if you’re in the north end.

Very nice place behind Franprix Marche on the end of St.Marie, Martinique. The Museum is in more parts and they speak well english, sometimes... I.floor is some exhibiton about Rhum production on Antilles, upstairs you can see some overview of advertising by Rhum marketing, but in the first floor You can make degustation of known Rhums from St.James factory. Wonderfull taste. Behind the building are next houses, but some reconstructed factory part with climatised room full of old rhum bottles and a lot of copper destilation facilities are interresting. Sometimes you can drive few meters by old sugar can train from st.James Station to storehouses. Dont mis low prices of selling Rhum bottles.

More than 250 years old, this Plantation has been growing sugar cane and making rum for centuries. Ride the cane railway for a leisurely trip through the fields of bananas and sugar cane, visit the museum to learn of the history of rum making the the French Caribbean island and taste the marvelous spirits produced on site.
