Maison Clément is currently one of the oldest properties on the island of Martinique, so that it has almost become a kind of historical monument: ever open to the public, has welcomed over the decades visitors and truly prestigious visitors. Born in the late nineteenth century, in 1887 for the sake of precision, the company took over by the hands of Homere Clément, doctor and mayor of Le François, who after buying the prestigious 43 hectare sugar plantation of Domaine de L ' Acajou began to produce Rhum Agricole directly from sugarcane juice, obtaining a distillate characterized by a contemporary and pure style. In the wake of such production, Homère Clément chose to create a real distillery, in particular to meet the great demand for alcohol during the First World War. After the death of Homère Clément, his son, Charles Clément, took over the management of the business, perfecting the production methods and starting to export Martinique Rhum Agricole for the first time abroad. At Charles Clément, they later moved to the children, while at the end of the last century, in 1996, the distillery was purchased by the Hayot family, which chose to continue with the company philosophy of previous management. This is how the production of Rhum Habitation Clément is still produced today, following the most pure agricultural traditions as well as the rules of a secret recipe that has been passed from generation to generation for centuries. The processing of Rhum Vieux Agricole is subject to rigid controls, with which the sugar cane is scrupulously selected and that the stages of distillation, aging and bottling are monitored. In the Clément distillery, production methods have not changed for years: this is how perfectly Rhum made of natural origin, characterized by an incomparable fineness.
