The Trois Rivières (Three Rivers) plantation was founded in 1660 by Nicolas Fouquet, Superintendent of Finances for Louis XIV, allotting himself 2000 hectares in the south of Martinique. It is only in 1785 that the rum production starts, completing the sugar production, when a powerful landlord from the north of the island, Etienne Isaïe Marraud Des Grottes, bought the plantation.


After being purchased by the B.B. Company, also owner of the La Mauny rum, the Trois Rivières production is moved to Rivière Pilote in 2004, where is located the La Mauny distillery. The precious original continuous still, that brings all of Trois Rivières characteristics, is reassembled on the new site, securing the quality of the spirit.


The Trois Rivières rum has held a “Martinique” Protected Denomination of Origin since 1996.


The Trois Rivieres rums develop a unique mineral style characterized by its hallmark full-bodied structure and aromatic richness. As the plantation faces south the canes grow easily near the shore and receive plenty of sun, imparting to the Trois Rivieres rum all of its special characteristics, as it is crafted from pure sugarcane juice.


The white rum develops a pleasant freshness and mineral edge. The good batches are left to age in oak casks for at least 3 years, to get the “Old Rum” appellation, and are characterized by a complex blend of spices and oaky flavours.


The refinement of Trois Rivieres rum resides in the very specific shape of the large column still and the pouring methods kept secret by the master distillers.

Colour: a thick rum of straw yellow colour with light golden reflections.

Nose: a prevailing sugar cane scent with elegant woody notes. Appear then perfumes of grey pepper and spices.

Palate: brisk with a beautiful structure. The raw flavours of sugar develops onto notes of spices and grey pepper.

Finish: long, with subtle woody notes and refreshing minerality.
