In Mauritius, fields of sugar cane can be seen all around the island.
The Constance group was originally involved in the culture of sugar cane, and later developed into the world famous hotel group that we know today.
Rum at Constance Belle Mare Plage
So it’s natural that Head Bartender at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Guillaume Graffeille, chose to pay tribute to the legendary beverage – rum.
Available at the main bar are more than 40 rums from French and British West Indies including the jewels of Martinique, probably the best rum in the World. There are also rums from Latin America, Asia, and of course Mauritius.
There’s a full range of rums, from those made out of the distillation of molasses, to the rums based on pure sugar cane juice, and of course the aged rums. These are proposed in different vintages: 5, 6 or 12 years old, and up to 25 years old for the rarest one.
All are raised in oak casks which allow a good exchange between the air and the rum and ensures the quality of the maturing process.
There are many ways of enjoying rum. It’s used in various classical and signature cocktails, enjoyed after dinner with a cigar or forms part of the composition of different punches or homemade ‘arranged’ rums.
Different flavoured rums
Constance Belle Mare Plage offers different flavoured rums, all with natural fruits: lychee, mango, passionfruit, pineapple, and so on but also with spices or even herbs: cinnamon, star anise, thyme, rosemary…
