Welcome at Clement Rum
Since 1887, the production of Rhum Clément has been carried out according to the purest traditions and most time-honoured inherited from Homère and Charles Clément.
Rhum Clément is crafted in strict observance of the guidelines set forth by the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée.
Homère Clément, physician and mayor of Le François, purchased the prestigious 43 hectare sugar plantation, Domaine de L'Acajou, and pioneered Rhum Agricole, a contemporary style of pure rum made directly from fresh free-run sugarcane juice, instead of the traditional rum made from molasses.
Located in Le Francois, Habitation Clément is the birthplace of Rhum Agricole and carries the culture of an ancient Créole sugarcane plantation rich with French West Indian history, which has been completely refurbished by the Hayot family to remain a Martiniquean cultural icon for centuries.
Formerly known as Domaine de l'Acajou, Habitation Clément welcomes thousands of tourists every year who come to discover old world and new world Créole culture. Many people spend peaceful time touring the botanical gardens or visiting where Rhum Clément has been made for more than 125 years, and no one leaves without a special bottle for their home bar. Recently some of the older structures have been refurbished into galleries and frequent exhibitions of local Caribbean artists are always open for display. Habitation Clément has been a registered French historical land mark since 1996 and has hosted several significant world events and dignitaries. Browse through our gallery of pictures or better yet, visit Habitation Clément and take in the whole experience for yourself. You will find us in Le Francois on the east coast of Martinique, and we are open every day from 9:30am to 5:00pm.
