SugarCane Rum Tasting Experience

17,00 €  

Anyone visiting our historic Producer in the village of Porto da Cruz gets to experience one of the main pieces of living evidence of the island’s glorious sugar production, at the beginning of the 20th century.

Built in the beginning of the 20th century (1927), although equipped with machinery from the 19th century, the Porto da Cruz mill is one of the most striking examples of the importance of sugarcane trade in Madeira Island. In terms of heritage it is also a museum of major significance.

It is dedicated exclusively to the production of sugarcane rum according to the original process, including the “Branca” rum and the "Envelhecida 970 Reserva" rum.

If you visit the island between the months of March and May when the sugarcane harvest begins you can witness the sounds, movements and smells of fermentation, albeit from a safe distance due to modern safety restrictions.

During the rest of the year it is possible to observe the machines and to understand the mechanism through interactive devices.

Our tour will start at the mill where our producer will present you the whole process, in the end we have a MasterClass tasting which includes 7 different rums, water bottle and Madeira Sugar Can Honey.
