Located along the undulating slopes of 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 since 1778.
Le Domaine de Saint Aubin belongs to the Guimbeau family native of France, established in Mauritius for eight generations now. Jean Baptiste Guimbeau was the first to settle in Mauritius in 1793. La Rhumerie du Domaine de Saint Aubin distinguishes itself as the one where Mauritius’ very first agricultural rum was created, wholly from pure sugar cane juice.
LA MAISON DU RHUM DE SAINT AUBIN
Always in search of lasting quality, the artisanal distillery of Saint-Aubin has brilliantly met the challenge of innovation and managed to combine tradition, human dimension and protection of the environment in the production of authentic agricultural rum equally appreciated by connoisseurs and amateurs.
Our “white” rum is made from specially selected cane sugar. The first pressed juice is distilled in a traditional pot still. Only the heart of the ‘coeur de chauffe’ is used to provide you with rum of exceptional quality. Spices and natural tropical flavours are mixed successfully with our white rum to bring additional flavours.
LE CHAIS DE SAINT AUBIN
Generally, for ageing we put raw alcohol in barrel. The inside of these barrels was previously burned or toasted. This process serves to release a multitude of aromas retained in the wood.
We use new barrels and old barrels containing other alcohols such as whisky, brandy or cognac. Our barrels come from Scotland and each is unique and will provide a different rum.
You should know that rum, or any alcohol put in barrel will age twice faster in the tropics. Thus a rum which has aged 10 years in a oak barrel in Mauritius equals a rum of 20 years in Europe.
LA RHUMERIE DU DOMAINE DE SAINT AUBIN
In order to meet demand, Saint-Aubin Group established a new traditional distillery with a copper column to increase its high quality agricultural rum production capacity without forgetting fruit based liqueurs.
With the distillation of the sugar cane juice in this column, a delicate and light rum is produced. This agricultural rum allows excellent miscibility lending itself perfectly to the making of various cocktails.
