Saint Lucia 

The island of Santa Lucia is an important producer of Rhum Agricole ; this distillate was born in the French Antilles: the inhabitants of these islands started harvesting sugar cane for its production since 1635, when the French settled in this area. Up until that point, rum had been made using molasses, which is a waste product from cane processing and is used today for the production of industrial rum. At the end of the 19th century, however, faced with the collapse in the price of sugar, alternative solutions to the production surplus were sought. The plantation owners were the first to experiment with the production of a new rum by distilling freshly fermented cane juice. This element led to the birth of Rhum Agricole which, over time, has assumed increasingly qualitative connotations. We can also distinguish Rum in at least 3 types : white rum , which matures for three months in wooden barrels, amber rum , 18 months in wooden barrels, and the dark or aged one, whose maturation lasts from 3 to 6 years and more .
