Beach House Rum
Rums from the paradisiac island of Mauritius

The Origin Story
A little spot of paradise
The volcanic island nation of Mauritius sits in the Indian ocean, not too far off the coast of Madagascar, near the French territory of Réunion. Over time, it has seen British and French rule, the rise and fall of the dodo, and a lot of tourists seeking a taste of heaven. Its climate and soil quality make it an ideal spot for cultivating sugarcane, and about a third of its surface is swathed in shining green sugarcane fields.
When life gives you sugarcane
With such expansive sugarcane production, Mauritius was almost predestined to become a rum production hub, and by the 19th century there were around 40 active rum distilleries on the island. These days, the country is famed for its gorgeously fresh and powerful spirits. Since 2010, the demand for exported Mauritian rum has almost doubled, making the rum industry a driving force of the local economy.
Rum is the spice of life
Mauritius produces three styles of rum: traditional molasses rum, rhum agricole, and spiced rum. Beach House is one of the few producers to concentrate entirely on one single style, producing a selection of aromatic spiced rums from local distilleries. The delicate flavours of the spice blends have been carefully honed and refined over time, with each rum boasting its own unique personality.
The secret sauce
Bottling a country
A vacation for the palate
Unfortunately, we can’t all just go to Mauritius whenever we want a break from the grey weather. The goal of Beach House is to provide us with the next best thing. Although we’re technically not lying on the beautiful white sands of Mont Choisy beach, watching the waves break on the volcanic ridge out in the turquoise waters of the Indian sea, at least we can take a sip, close our eyes, let the exotic flavours wash over us, and pretend.
