Habitation Bellevue Rhum Distillery
Unlike other Caribbean islands except for French counterparts Martinique and St. Martin, Guadeloupean rhum agricole is distilled from 100% pure sugar cane juice rather than from molasses. This is a higher proof, finer taste, and purer version. A number of well-respected, small rhum factories–including Boulogne, Damoiseau, Bellevue–offer tours across the Guadeloupe Islands, particularly interesting during the sugar cane harvest season between February and June. Domaine de Bellevue, in Marie-Galante, is a solid pick for a full, educational experience, from still standing ancient sugar mill to its eco-friendly distillery process, and tasting of varying rhum flavors–from coconut to cafe, made with Ethiopian beans, or to sample a traditional Ti Punch, Guadeloupe’s official cocktail. There’s on site shopping as well in case you’d like to stock up for home.
