Sugar cane has been present in Mauritius since the first half of the fifteenth century. Initially cultivated for the production of arak by the Dutch, it was during the French and English occupations that the development of cane cultivation accelerated drastically. It should be noted that Mauritius, through its various influences, has become a producer of rum of all styles, such as traditional molasses, agricole or spiced. Emblematic houses like Chamarel, New Grove, Saint Aubin, Labourdonnais or Emperor make the success of the island. Since the 2010s, the Mauritian rum market has been booming and its aura shines through a phenomenal increase in local production (nearly 180% since the beginning of the 2010s) and increasingly important exports.
