Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

99 martinique

Remember the first card from Martinique?

A few weeks later I found this special card in my mailbox, also kindly sent by Zosia. Well, it is not exactly a card, it is actually an old Rhum etiquette, placed on a wooden plate, how cool!

As Zosia wrote, this is an old kind of etiquette, today they are more 'neutral', usually only with the sign od distillery (like e.g. a windmill or a colonial house).

If you ever travel to Martinique and would like to know more about rhum, you should visit a former distillery which has been converted into a tourist information centre and museum of Martinique rhum agricole. There are tours presenting the various stages of rhum production, which of course end with a tasting of different kinds of Trois Rivières rhums.

Which rhum is the best? Zosia recommends Clement's rhum, also because of its beautiful etiquettes.

  1. Pierwsza podobała mi się bardziej, ale ta jest niewątpliwie związana z tą wyspą :D
    U mnie też niedługo pocztówki z Martyniki :)



My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
