About Mauritian Spirits

Mauritius, a volcanic island nation in the Indian Ocean, has a varied spirits industry, with spirits including honey liqueur as well as several different types of rum. These include white rum, spiced gold rum, rhum agricole blanc, coffee rum and vanilla rum. While most are destined for cocktails, there are some aged rums of XO quality that are outstanding and should be enjoyed in a small snifter along with a cigar.
