Bielle decided to play the quality card. They make the rums only from pure sugar cane juice (and not from molasses).
The result is an inimitable taste.
Initially, the family farm cultivated coffee. No less than 32 farmers worked on the plantation.
However, in 1826, they decided to replace the coffee plants by a sugar factory.
In 1940, the business was flourishing: 26,000 litres of rum were sold each year. Today, the company, acquired by Paul Rameaux and then Dominique Thierry, has increased its production tenfold, reaching 330,000 litres per year. Production is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner, thanks to the phytoremediation technique: the vinasses are placed in a natural basin containing plants that contribute to the treatment of the residues through evapo-transpiration.
