Chamarel

Mauritius

In Mauritius, Indian Ocean, there is the Chamarel distillery, nestled in sugar cane fields on a hill 300 meters above the sea on the south-west coast of the island. A recent project, dated 2008, of the Couacaud family, which created a cutting-edge micro-distillery with a visitor's center and a renowned restaurant, for a complex that is a tourist destination for 15,000 visitors a month (a visit to the distillery is definitely worth the journey, be it from a luxury hotel on the coast, or directly from home).
