things we love in Martinique
All the Distilleries !!
We enjoyed visiting a number of distilleries in Martinique and were impressed by the well kept locations as well as the tasty flavours we sampled. Rum is ubiquitous in the Caribbean and we love trying each islands own versions. The Martinique distilleries seem a little more up-market and it is lovely to see (putting the horrible slavery history aside) the plantation buildings being restored and still in use today. Some of the Martinique rums are almost 'cognac' in style and flavour, evoking memories of cognac distillery tours in my past.
