When in Martinique…

Martinique produces some fine rums on more than a dozen estates scattered around the island.  Habitation Clement, an 18th Century distillery near Le Fracois, offers a tour of its facilities, a cane-field locomotive, and warehouses redolent with the scent of aging rhum, as well as gardens featuring exotic palms.  You can also walk through the Clements’ magnificent Creole house on the hill, site of meetings between between Presidents George H.W. Bush and Mitterrand.  The tour costs $10 and includes audio commentary and a rum tasting.  www.habitation-clement.fr for more details (in French).
