Martinique produces great rum!

 

The island’s distilleries are the only ones in the world to be awarded the designation Appellation d’Origine Controlée, a label typically associated with excellent French wines. Now it’s also associated with excellent Martinican rums. And why not? Like wine, rum is aged in oak barrels and is comparable to fine cognac.

Just as wine lovers visit France to savor the best of French wine while traveling along La Route des Vins, rum connoisseurs head to Martinique to experience some of the world’s finest rums by traveling La Route des Grands Rhums
