Of the many distilleries located around Le Carbet in the 19C, only the Neisson Distillery remains, the last family-owned business on the island (1931). The reputation of its rum derives from the particular flavour of the sugar cane that grows on this volcanic soil. The visit is all the more fascinating as the factory is still in operation. The different stages of production are explained by a brochure, handed out free at the reception. Serigraphed bottles of rum are on sale at the shop on the way out.
