“Free samples of the best white rum in the Caribbean”

Distillerie de Poisson

Attraction details
Owner description: The rum produced from sugar cane on Marie Galante is world famous. This distillery produces the Père Labat brand - the most popular brand of the island.
Reviewed April 3, 2010

We arrived at the factory in mid-February which is outside the sugar cane harvesting season. Consequently the factory was not in operation but we were allowed in to check out the equipment.
Outside the factory you will find a sales and information booth where you can purchase the various products at a substantial discount from retail (€7 for a bottle of their 59 proof signature white rum). You are also welcome to sample the various brands but BE WARNED: while the most popular mixed drink in Guadeloupe is the ti' punch - similar to a daiquiri - the samples here are provided in the form which is the next most popular way to drink rum here - straight up with a water chaser.
Bottoms up!
