The unique terroir of Depaz rhums
Since 1996, agricultural rhums from Martinique owned their own ''Appellation of controlled origin''.
The sugar cane used to make Depaz rhum is grown in a terroir which is one of a kind in Martinique: the Mount Pelée region. Here, the plants have all the ingredients they need in a tropical climate that ensures good development and allows them to offer up the best of themselves.
The combination of exceptional sunshine and abundant rainfall linked to the meteorological alchemy of the volcano and the fact that it culminates at an altitude of 1,395 meters.
A young, light and filtering soil, which imposes to the sugar cane a deep rooting and a metabolism favorable to the accumulation of sugar.
The Depaz rhums farm produces the richest sugar cane in Martinique.
Thanks to these assets, the land on which they grow has been classified since 1996 as part of the "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Martinique", an appellation that expresses the intimate link between the natural elements, water, sun, earth, and the know-how of the men and women of Depaz, perpetuated over the generations.
