In the very centre of a fertile valley under the gentle warm sun of the southern part of the paradise island the Rhumerie de Chamarel is located. This is definitely one of the places to see in Mauritius. Wide range of attractions and activities is available here. The road leading here is lined by the vast sugar cane plantations and plantations of various delicious tropical delicious fruits. Southern sun and rains make the perfect microclimate for plantations.
Rhumerie welcomes guests to come and see by yourself how the beverage is made. Mauritius attraction sightseeing here in the Rhumerie is an exclusive experience for the tourists. Take a guided tour to the distillery and try different types of local rum. Among other Mauritius attractions private day tours in the rhumerie are always popular. Sugar cane fields were created to grow in this ideal microclimate area. All year round the weather is great here and cane is really fruitful. Every day it provides hand-picked fresh sugar cane at the dawn of the day. After being harvested in four hours the cane gets to the mills of th rum distillery. Careful selection is and rapidness of the producing process makes the juice extracts as pure as it is possible.
The distillery is proud of its quality of the rum which is made of fresh fermented cane juice and obtains from molasses. Only 5% of producers make rum the same way as it is made here.
The distillation and fermentation are sophisticated processes in their techniques. There is important aspect that it is safe for the environment. Because of the rational manufacturing and recycling procedures nothing is wasted. Also, the bagasse, the fibrous residue that remains after the juice extraction process is collected and transformed into energy. Right before being released into the atmosphere all the industrial fumes are carefully cleared. All ashes are used as fertilizers.
