Take a tour of Rhumerie de Chamarel to learn about the history of rum production in the country. Opening in 2008, the distillery harvests its own sugar cane by hand instead of burning the crops; the result is an improved flavor and smaller ecological footprint. Surrounded by attractive plant life, where sugar cane, pineapples, and other tropical fruits grow in abundance, the distillery and agricultural plantation form an eco-friendly estate and offer an introduction to the country's agricultural heritage. Let the experienced guides take you through the process of rum-making, and be sure to enjoy a tipple at the end and pick up a bottle to take home with you. Put Rhumerie de Chamarel into our Chamarel tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The Chamarel rhumerie is both a production site, a restaurant, a shop... all in a beautiful setting. The visit is succinct but lets see the machines in action and understand the cane juice extraction and distillation. At the end of the visit: tasting of the rums of base and arranged rums (about a dozen shots) then in option 5 rums. This additional tasting allowed us to interact with the site manager: very interesting because we know little about the rum but more whiskey-online similarities exist; especially in the development strategy of the factory or its lines of research (they have just launched a 1st production in was already previously used for wine). We did not try the restaurant but the card was attractive. Note that the visit + tasting is paid unless you book the restaurant because breakfast gives you access

  • The tour is great and very interesting ! it can be a bit busy but the tasting makes a great ending. the food in the restaurant was not great but OK.  more »
  • It is a very fixed factory where I think that the guided tour is one of the main activities. It's beautiful, clean, it seems more a museum than a factory. Staff, included a tasting of rum and pineapple. Very good experience
