Premium rum from Mauritius, flavoured with real lemon-grass.

Famous 18th century French navigator Louis Antoine de Bougainville epitomised the essential values of the rums that proudly bear his name today. Commissioned by the French government to circle the earth in voyage of exploration, Bougainville set out to sea in December 1766. During the course of his voyage he set down in Isle de France (now known as Mauritius). Back in France in 1769 - he wrote his famous account, A Voyage Round the World.

In Mauritius, rum production is closely linked to that of sugar. Sugarcane was first introduced on the island by the Dutch in 1638. However it was during the French and British administration that sugar production was fully exploited - and Pierre Charles Francios Harel became the first to propose the concept of local distillation of rum in Mauritius.
