History

Around 1660, Nicolas Fouquet, Superintendent of Finance under Louis XIV, dreams of founding a vice-kingdom in the Antilles, with the complicity of Lieutenant Isaac de Feuquieres. He therefore awards himself a large concession, never before allotted in the Antilles: approximately 2,000 hectares between the towns of Diamant and Saint Luce. He had a veritable fortified castle built which never had a chance to be lived in, for, once Fouquet lost favor with the King, all the edifices of the estate were destroyed.

In 1770, the property, which had several owners, is divided into 3 sugar plantation estates, one of which is operational until 1867 and for which there remain some remnants of the past.

In 1785, it is the end of the preponderance of the royal representatives. Etienne Issaie Marraud Desgrottes, a powerful landowner, purchases the Céron and Trois Rivieres plantations. Céron is designated as a sugar mill where rum is also produced, while Trois Rivieres is left deserted. Located by the seaside, the factory is linked to the plantations by means of several kilometers of railroad.

In 1894, following diverse vicissitudes, Céron is allocated to the Trois Rivieres Co. Inc. It marks the end of Ceron as a production unit. The sugar works, built on the present site, are gradually oriented towards agricultural rum production. Progressively, a larger and larger part of production is stored for aging.

In 1976, Martini Rossi becomes a majority stockholder in the firm. Substantial financial aid is granted and the company will quickly draw on this new momentum. At the beginning of the 1980s, the rum distillery is once again renovated and extended. As of 1994, Trois Rivieres is part of the Group, Bellonnie Bourdillon et Successeurs, already owners of La Mauny rums.

The distillery will not work any more. It should be transformed into museum. Rum Trois River will be distilled by La Mauny.


The Grouppe BBS (part of Groupe Quartier Francais) has locations in the French West Indies (Martinique, Guadeloupe and Guyana). Its headquarters are in Martinique.

The Bellonnie et Bourdillon Successeurs company produces and markets agricole rums (distilled from fresh cane juice): La Mauny, Trois-Rivieres and Duquesne.
