SAINT-ETIENNE HABITATION

Habitation Saint-Etienne Martinique

The plantation SAINT-ETIENNE was one of the principal sugar factories of Martinique in the 19th century. Like others, it was converted into an artisanal rum distillery at the end of the same century, and ultimately stopped distilling in 1988.

The rum is now distilled by the Simon distillery in the municipality of François. Rum is then placed in casks, aged and refined on the property of the Saint-Etienne Plantation. A tour of the site allows visitors to discover the cask stocks, bottling, the rest of the installations of the old distillery, and the cabins where the field workers lived.
