Originally used for the cultivation of tobacco and farming, the lands were quickly used for the cultivation of sugar cane which had strongly developed thanks to the distillation techniques improvements.
Saint Pierre became the first global rum port. The barrels were shipped to Europe where the amber liquid was very popular.
On the 8th of May 1902, the volcano of Mount Pelee woke up and the city of Saint Pierre was wiped off the map. Victor Depaz, who was studying in France, learnt about the terrible disaster at the same time as the disappearance of his entire family. Orphan, ruined, he decided to settle in Canada but on the road, during a stop in Martinique, he understood that his destiny was there and decided to stay.
On the 8th of May 1917, 15 years after the eruption, he started his new distillery supplied by the 521 hectares of sugar cane which he now owns on the flanks of Mount Pelee.
He also built a family home, soon called Castle Depaz, where he moved in 1922 with his wife and eleven children.
Throughout his life, Victor Depaz constantly developed the rums that bear his name.
In 1922, the Depaz rums obtained their first medal in Marseille. They were rewarded with a gold medal at the 1927 exhibition in La Rochelle. This was the beginning of a long harvest of rewards that still continues today.
In the 1950', the sons of Victor Depaz took over from their father. André and Raoul Depaz modernized the production of sugar cane and improved the distillery that everyone now calls the Depaz distillery.
Two types of cane are grown there: the famous blue cane (60% of the production), perfectly adapted to this Martinican soil, and the cane cinnamon. The size of the volcanic lands gives a mineral power to the canes located on the volcano skirt which develop a sweet and fruity bouquet with mineral notes. The rum comes out enriched with heavy esters that contribute to its elegance.
Today the cellar master of the distillery is a woman, which is very rare in the spirits industry and the very first in the history of AOC rum. Nora Carrion-Martinez, a trained chemical process and technology engineer, felt under the spell of the agricultural rum when she arrived in Martinique in 1990. She now has been working for the Depaz distillery for over twenty years. She clearly claims her feminine approach to rum which is a great success as the brand receives lots of rewards. If Depaz mainly uses American and French type barrels, she is currently experimenting with special drums.
