Photos of a Rum Distillation Column - Photo in Martinique

rum distillation column

...the distillation columns.

The cane wine arrives at the top of this distillation column, which measures about 9 or 10 meters.

In contact with the steam introduced from the bottom of the column, alcohol vapors appear, then condense, finally yielding, at the end of the still, the "white cluster" which then has a strength of over 70°.

Finally, spring water is added to bring the rum obtained to the desired alcohol content: 62, 55, 50, or 40°.
