Trip Planner: Africa / Reunion Island / Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre / Saint-Pierre / La Saga du Rhum
La Saga du Rhum tells the story of this traditional local product and its impact on the island's history by taking you through rum's manufacturing process. The museum opened in 2008 in a small family distillery, one of the island's oldest still active. Start your visit by strolling through the gardens between sugarcane crops and rows of rum barrels. Visit the 1940s mill--operative until the late 1980s--and watch the video to see how it worked. Finally, tour the working distillery, which dates back to 1845, and don't miss the opportunity to taste a selection of finished products at the end of the tour.

Informative museum about the making of Rhum and its side products along with a lovingly presented general history of the island. There are tours of the museum offered (mostly in French), at the end of the either guided or self-guided tour, you are being offered two of their products to taste. The shop offers Rhum products along with souvenirs from Reunion for reasonable prices. The staff at the entrance as well as in the shop is proficient in English.
Quick, informative tour about Rhum history in Reunion with a cute tasting at the end. Should not take more than an hour.
