    Surprised by the tour
    We were there just to but some rhum. But you have to do the tour to get to the shop. This was not our intention to do, but we had the time so we decided to do the tour. We were surprised in a good way. The tour was good, the tasting was Nice en the shop was well organised with lots of choices.

    Great experience!
    We booked the private tasting which was £30 each and included the guide only for us, the tasting of the classing rum and the aged ones, the entrance to the casks room where we also had the private tasting with a starter (cheese, ham, salame, bread and butter). Our guide Giovani was very professional and competent. He explain to us everything and answered to all the questions we had. He was so kind that even booked for us a table in a restaurant for my fiancé birthday. At the end of the tour you can also buy the rums. I recommend to buy from there as we saw higher prices in the islands and airport. I highly recommend to book the private tasting and to visit the Rhumerie.

    A must visit if staying in le morne
    This place was excellent. We booked the private aged rum tasting. Very friendly/knowledgable guide, delicious rum. The tour itself was very reasonably priced given the quantity and quality of rum tasted. Make sure you stop by the restaurant for a couple of cocktails after, they were delicious.

    Beautiful location, great rum tasting - and a short tour of the distillery!
    We spent about 90 mins here today, went on the tour, tried several different rums and had a look round the shop. The tour of the distillery was fairly interesting, and the location is beautiful. Think we would have enjoyed it more going at a quieter time, the place was rammed with people, with group after group doing the tour. We still enjoyed it, learned something in the process and came back with a bottle of rum to take home!

    Great visit to a charming small distillery
    A lovely couple of hours spent at the site. Easy parking and the tour well worth the money and time from a very informative guide and good tasting session at the end. If you want to eat at the restaurant, would recommend booking in advance as busy with pre booked group trips. Thanks for a nice time.

    A Spirited Delight!
    A visit to Rhumerie de Chamarel is pure joy! From the warm welcome to the scenic tour, it's a delightful blend of fun and education. The staff's friendliness adds a special touch. The best part? The tasting at the end — an exquisite journey through Chamarel's finest rums. It's not just a visit; it's a sip of Mauritian spirit and charm. Highly recommended for a taste of paradise! 🌺🥃

    Great visit with Olivier
    First of all I would like to thank Olivier. We can feel he is very passionate in what he is doing. He is a great guide and can see he lives his island and he is very knowledgeable. We had a great tour of the Rhum Factory of Chamarel and the end the rhum tasting was great. If you visit Mauritius it’s a must to do the Rhumerie de Chamarel. Thank you so much Olivier and Rhumerie de Chamarel

    Unforgettable moments with Swiss friends. We keep returning every year and each time we discover something new and delightful about La Rhumerie de Chamarel. From the breathtaking views to the exceptional rum tasting experience, the delicious food at L’Alchimiste, and the excellent service, it never fails to impress us.

This distillery is close to the 7 coloured earth and well worth the visit. The tour guides are very informative and the location is stunning. The entry price is very reasonable and at the end of the tour you get to try 9 different Rums. The shop is great. Overall a very good experience

Great if you love rum. If you visit during summertime you might be able to actually see the production. The rum tasting is very generous and I do recommebd the premium tasting as well.

Wonderful Rhum manufacturing and tasting. It was raining, so this was a very good backup plan. We bought some bottles in Super U.

A very interesting experience. I saw the process by which sugar cane turns into rhum and also into sugar. The very kind people showed us several types of rhum, which we tasted. We were able to buy them at the store, but there we also found different types of sugar and honey. It is worth tasting and buying them here.
