Martinique Sugar Cane Syrup

Does anyone know where I can buy this in New York. It is used for making 'tit Punch, a popular drink in the French West Indies.

        I don't know any specific places, sorry.

        If you can't find a store, get some demarera or turbinado sugar or sucanat (SUgarCAneNATural) and make a heavy simply syrup with water (1C sugar dissolved slowly in 1C water).

        I'm pretty sure that the company that imports Depaz Rhum from Martinique also imports their cane syrup, but I don't know if the antiquated laws in NY would allow a store which sells the rum to also sell the syrup (my guess is not).
