    Island Spirit: Our Fave Mauritian Rum Cocktail

    Spiced. Dark. Light. Whichever style, rum is a vibe. It brings to mind chill island vibes and memories of best-of vacay moments (Surfer in Residence Tiara Hernandez's little bro Bruno Mars even has his own blend, which he calls "vacation in a glass").

    Mauritian rum may be lesser known than its sister island counterparts—but it's just as delicious. With about 10 distilleries, Mauritius is one of the few countries that produces both traditional rum (mostly from molasses) and agricultural rum (mostly from cane juice).

    With the sugarcane harvest well under way—the season typically runs from June to December—this island nation's producers and distilleries are busy creating tasty new rum batches. And we're getting ourselves ready to sample them in classic apertifs and modern cocktails.

    One of our favorite spots on the island is the eco-friendly Rhumerie de Chamarel. Located in the unique micro-climate of the South West's fertile valley near the “Coloured Earths of Chamarel," this iconic distillery is one of the few that also cultivates its own sugarcane. Sample from nearly two dozen island-inspired rum varieties (from Single Barrel to Vanilla) as you overlook rolling plantations and verdant hills.

    If you're craving a sip of Mauritius now, try a little "armchair travelling" to this island wonderland with our Royal Mojito cocktail.
