We have visited this nice distillery, it was very interesting to understand how you extract sugar, and how you transform it into rhum! And after that we had the possibility to discover the differences between different rhum. You have to visit if you fly to La Réunion, definitively!

The tour explains the process well, delineates the many types of rum that are produced, discusses the import and export markets and is a good and informative experience. And... More
