Top 5 / Caribbean

Martinique’s artisanal rum scene has been making waves in recent years, with the tiny island nation earning a reputation for producing the best rhum agricole in the Caribbean. The next time you’re in town, be sure to swing by these stops on the Route de Rhums.

 

Rhum J.M.

Rhum J.M. is one of the island’s more historic distilleries and rests on the side of Mount Pelée. The volcanic soil here produces some of the best sugarcane, and guests can spend an entire day here wandering through the sprawling fields.

 

Saint James

Saint James is one of the largest distilleries on Martinique and boasts 250 years of history. It also boasts the on-site Musée du Rhum, where you can learn about the importance of rum in the island’s history while sampling an array of limited-edition alcohol.

 

Neisson

Neisson is a family-owned distillery open year-round, with production in full swing during the first half of the year. Though not the largest on the island, it offers a more intimate look at the process and features what is arguably some of the tastiest rum on the island.

 

Habitation Clément

Habitation Clément is the birthplace of rhum argicole on the island and a must for visitors. The expansive estate features a stunning rum tasting tour, a museum, art galleries and breathtaking botanical gardens.

 

Distillerie Depaz

Though the rum at Distillerie Depaz might not be top-shelf material, the views alone are worth a trip. Panoramic shots of the ocean and nearby volcano provide an excellent backdrop for a self-guided tour with plenty of opportunities for tastings.

Airpods

Everyone has a different headphones preference. Some prefer the ones that go over your head and others like the ones inside your ear. I am particular about my headphones, as I don’t like when they go too far into your ear. I was nervous to purchase Apple Airpods as a result, but I am glad I did.
