Born over 3 centuries ago, the Trois Rivières Plantation is an integral part of Martinique’s historical heritage. Its emblematic name comes from the three rivers that border the acres of sugarcane fields: Oman, Bois d’Inde and Saint Pierre. During the 18th and 19th Centuries the plantation specializes in the production of sugar; at the beginning of the 20th Century it starts manufacturing Agricole rum that will in time become its exclusive production.
