With your guide, you will learn the agricultural steps of rum processing in the oldest distillery on the island. While in Saint-Pierre you will venture among the remains that survived a colossal eruption. And do not miss the strong flavors of Creole dishes.What makes the indigenous spirit of Martinique one of the most characteristic of the Lesser Antilles? You’ll start discovering it in Sainte-Marie by visiting the historic St. James Distillery with your guide. It is here that you will learn how to process the first rum of the island: from the vesou, the extremely pure cane sugar, to the refining process that takes place in the traditional creole columns. Everything will be clearer after a walk in the museum: thanks to engravings, mills and agricultural machines, the Caribbean liquor will have no secrets now, as well as its origins, linked to a religious alchemist of 1765. Then, depart for Morne Rouge, where the lunch break in a typical restaurant is a profusion of flavors and Creole music. The change of scenery is touching: walk among the ruins of Saint-Pierre, the ancient capital destroyed by the force of the volcano La Pelée in 1902. Notice the ruins of an old prison: you can still see the dungeon of the only survivor! Return to Fort de France by the Caribbean coast crossing the various small fishing villages.
