la perruche

La Perruche cane sugar is still cultivated in Reunion Island, a tropical paradise of flavors and fragrances. The sugar canes soak up all the aromas and goodness of the rich soil in the North and East of the island which enjoy generous rainfall and are aired by the trade winds.

Harvested and pressed from July to December, the sugar cane produces a sweet liquid that thickens into a syrup before the formation of the first crystals.

It is this sweet gold that secured the reputation of the island, formerly known as Ile Bourbon, back in the 19th century.
