Rhum Agricole as a category is usually referred to rhum made out of cane juice, but the one made in Martinique needs to meet certain standards before being able to be classified as Martinique Agricole Rhum because of the island’s AOC (Apellation d’Origine Controlee). This is exclusive to Martinique and it doesn’t define the whole “cane juice rhum” category. To qualify, the cane juice cannot be fermented for longer than 120 hours, the ABV of the fermented juice can’t be higher than 7.5% and it has to be distilled in column stills between 65% and 75% ABV. This ensures that a lot of the character from the sugarcane juice is being retained into the distilled spirit (the higher the ABV the more neutral the spirit).
