It’s the rum capital of the Caribbean — at least if you go by the number of distilleries. The French Caribbean island of Martinique has a whopping 11 distilleries, with even more rum brands, each producing the department’s signature rhum agricole, made out of fresh sugar cane juice, not molasses like its Spanish and English-speaking neighbours in the region. And exploring this route is one of the coolest experiences in the Caribbean. So join us and take a CJ tour of all 11 distilleries on the Route des Rhums.
