Gold of Mauritius matures in South African fortified wine barrels and is then blended in small batches. This Rum is carefully distilled at Grays distillery, Mauritius.
A truly unique rum, completely unlike Caribbean rums. Gold of Mauritius Rum is made from 100% Mauritian distillates conditioned in South African port barrels & blended in small batches for an extraordinary taste that can be used to develop very unique cocktails.
Gold of Mauritius ”is a rum that epitomizes the essence of this tropical island with its rich culture and history. An amalgamation of the best aromas and purest rums, paying tribute to the diversity of the people of the Island of Mauritius.” Frederic Bestel
The History of Mauritian Rum began in 1850 and is no less enriching than that of the Caribbean. Its tropical climate and rich volcanic soils have always ensured that only the best sugarcane is grown, and the local distilleries guarantee that only the best ingredients are used in the making of Mauritian rum. Today Mauritius houses several distilleries.
Every bottle is blended under the supervision of Frederic Bestel, who begins by selecting specific un-aged Rums from local Mauritian distilleries before conditioning the rum in South African port casks. Unlike most other rums, the unique flavour of Gold of Mauritius rum is dominated by the influence of the port residue within the wooden casks rather than the wood exclusively.
