Only the French use the word Industriel to describe their own product.
molasses rum, which they called industrial in a kind of put down
This discussion is like the one about the angels's sex. Or if you prefer, an urban legend. Probably to have one more opportunity to bash our supposed "arrogance" (no, please, no, don't you mention AOC!) .

I totally agree with Edward,we French are absolutely not concerned by this argument, we rather care of what's inside the bottle. As the old proverb says "dogs bark and the caravan passes by..." (# 95% of rhum drunk in France is agricole...)

Would you please show me a single bottle or one official french text bearing the mention "industriel"?. I know the answer is no. You'll only find "traditionnel de ..." (traditional from ...) as Hank noticed.

From the french customs point of view, there are only 2 categories of rum : "traditionnel agricole" and "traditionnel de sucrerie". It is forbidden to produce both in the same distillery.

True, in fact we use "traditionnel" in everyday use to distinguish from "agricole".

There is a lot of traditionnels (de sucrerie) rhums made in Réunion, like the Rivière du Mât family of excellent quality (and price according to, alas).
Once again they're hard to find as they are mostly drunk on the island.
