“Tiny tour, small tasting, excellent surroundings”

Rhumerie de Chamarel
Ranked #2 of 5 things to do in Chamarel

Reviewed 21 June 2014

The rhumerie is quite small and as it was not yet harvest season (jun - dec) we didn't get to see the rhumerie actually running. Nevertheless the short tour (15 min) was quite interesting.

The tasting was nice as well, we especially liked the VSOP. If you want to take some of the rum with you, you can buy it with them or at any supermarket on the island (prices don't differ much, they're a bit cheaper when you buy it at the rhumerie).

Great guide, great tour. This place is well set up for visitors. June-Dec is harvest season so there's a lot going on - you can see the sugar cane being crushed, learn about the whole process and then taste the rum. The restaurant is very good as well.

Love the setting of the rumerie. Loved the tasting and tour. If you are into architecture and landscaping you will surely love what they have done with a place that is actually a factory...

It's a relatively new facility even if the manufacturing equipment is used. The grounds are stunning and the tour was informative if not brief. The rum tasting afterwards was pleasant but be warned! You might make friends there! :)

My husband and I just wanted to make a lunch break there (the restaurant was excellent). They then took us for a free guided rhumerie tour and a degustation. The whole site is very nice
