You can visit greenhouses, where you will come across an assortment of anthuriums and tropical flowers. Learn all about rum production and the processes of distilling rum. A rum tasting session will give you the chance to try different, skilfully made rums, such as the white agricultural rum.

Saint Aubin has over the years developed a distinctive signature thanks to the precision invested into their distillation process, which instils into their rums an unmatched aspect of authenticity and originality.
