Not to be missed is the sugar-tasting of the best of the Mauritian sugar industry, 12 unrefined natural sugars kept for export. They have a real taste to them. The senses also come alight while tasting 9 rums, with their rounded, mellow and nuanced flavours. There is a meticulous process involved. The rums, specially developed for l’Aventure du Sucre by New Grove, are aged in oak barrels from Limousin forests, infused in special sugars or in vanilla, coffee or honey. There are also local sweets, tropical fruit jams & honey from Rodrigues. By showcasing this wide range of local produce, L’Aventure du Sucre is also helping to sustain know-how that has been acquired over the centuries and which is an integral part of the island’s culture.
