Polynesian rum tasting

'O tahiti, the endemic sugar cane

A strong taste of the past

Rum with a distinctly Polynesian flavor

We’ve been distilling rum from sugar cane for a very long time in The Islands of Tahiti. Try some of it, or rather, some of them. Polynesian rums all have their own, distinct flavor.

" A group of local rum producers have asked for Polynesian rum to be registered as a PGI - Protected Geographical Indication. "

The rebirth of rum production

Unfortunately, the production of local rum proved not to be very profitable and the plantations and distilleries slowly disappeared.But then, in the 1990s, an enthusiast breathed fresh life into the faded Polynesian rum industry. Since then, others have joined him and the production of rum is a flourishing industry from Taha’a to Rangiroa. Manuia ! (Cheers! in Tahitian).
