The Other Mauritius – on to the rum

After some tea we went to St Aubin and observed a similar production line, but this time to make rum.  It was on a much less industrial scale; a single man fed the cane through a crusher.  A couple of large vats of bubbling dishwater; right down to the white scum on top, distilled the rum into cooling pipes.  We then had a couple of samples in the shop; I was careful to only take the smallest sips of each one as I had to drive back to Port Louis that evening.
