The history of the Depaz distillery is linked to Victor Depaz, who at the time of the terrible eruption of Mount Pelée on May 8, 1902, was studying in Paris. The only survivor of the family, he decided in 1917 against everyone's will to buy the 521 hectares of the 'Mountain' and to rebuild a distillery on the site destroyed barely fifteen years earlier by the eruption.
Today, the plantation extends over 400 hectares of property on volcanic soil, guaranteeing a wealth of terroir unique in Martinique. Depaz distills with a Creole column and holds more than 5,000 aging barrels in its warehouses, as well as 8 casks of 1,000 liters and 3 of 4,000 liters, all made of wood and coming from the forests of Charente in France.
