La Favorite Blanc - distilled by La Favorite - Martinique French West Indies

The fresh smooth aroma is accented by tropical florals, the body is rich in citrus and pear notes followed by citrus and fresh sugar cane juice in the finish.

Coeur de Canne is the heart of the sugar cane juice spirit distilled in a copper, single-column still, then rested and bottled at the distillery.

The bottle changed in 2021 to a old-style bottle after several upgrades at the distillery including cane mills and some additional fermentation tanks.

Originally built in 1842, today the La Favorite rhum distillery borders the sprawling metropolis of Fort de France
La Favorite property
Much of the sugar cane processed here is grown on the estate, but La Favorite also buys sugar cane from local farmers who have grown sugar cane for generations. After harvesting in the field all of the cane is unloaded here, weighed, crushed and the juice put into the stainless steel fermentation tanks.
La Favorite Steam Engine

The massive cane mills at La Favorite are some of the largest and oldest on Martinique. After the rhum season, Jan - June, workers are busy repairing the rollers that crush the cane, replacing bearings and other maintenance required to get this machinery that dates to the early decades of the last century ready for the next cane harvest and rhum season.
La Favorite Cane Mill

After shredding and crushing the fibrous cane stalks, the resulting straw-like fiber fuels the boiler that generates steam for the steam engine that powers the cane mills, pumps and conveyers as well as steam for distillation.
This steam-powered pump moves the fresh juice from the sump under the cane mills to the fermentation tanks. La Favorite bagasse

La Favorite ferments the fresh juice for three days using commercial yeast. After fermentation the vesou is distilled in the columns below.
