Default Molasses rum from Martinique

in 2009 83% of Martinique rhum was AOC labelled (from fresh sugarcane juice). The remaining (or the equivalent of 15949 hectolitres of pure alcohol) was produced at the sole sugar producing facility in Martinique: the Gallion plant. The Gallion plant uses its own produced molasses to make traditional rhum (or industrial rhum as it is also called) but its production is not sold (at least I have never seen any Gallion rhum in Martinique or continental France).

For more details on AOC/Traditional production in Martinique, please refer to http://www.rhum-agricole.net/site/en/mq_rum

Galion rum isn't highly prized in Martinique but it is sold in Leader Price grocery stores as well a number of other grocery stores, especially in the eastern part of the island.

The Galion sugar factory isn't the only distillery that produces cane spirit alcohol that isn't AOC rhum agricole, but the other distilleries don't advertise that they make anything but rhum agricole.
