Saint Aubin Plantation

Located at southern Mauritius, the fields of Saint Aubin have been under sugar cane cultivation since 1819. The estate takes its name from one of its first owners, Pierre de Saint Aubin. There is also a vanilla plantation and an artisanal rum distillery. It distinguishes itself as the one where Mauritius’ very first agricultural rum was created, wholly from pure sugar cane juice. Agricultural rum is obtained by direct distillation of sugarcane juice after fermentation. 1819 agricultural rum is the first agricultural rum in Mauritius. Available in 4 flavors: Vanilla, Coffee, Spices and Coco.

The sugar cane that goes into their making is manually harvested. It is immediately sent to the mill where it will be slowly and gently pressed to extract the juice. It is exclusively this precious first-crush juice, commonly called “fangourin” in Mauritius, which is used to make the rums. This juice will undergo fermentation to become the “wine”. It will then be distilled in a traditional copper alembic. Only the heart of distillation is retained to create the rums. For the lengthening, they use their own spring water, sourced from the tea plantation domain of Bois Chéri.

Renewed Traditional Distillery
With the view to expanding the production capacity for its agricultural rum, Saint Aubin has installed a new copper column based traditional distillery on its premises.
