It is somewhat rare to find a field to bottle, single estate rum. STARR Rum is distilled, aged, blended and bottled onsite from molasses, made from sugarcane grown on the estate. In essence, STARR is a taste of one small corner of paradise. Grown off the slope of a volcano, the sugarcane fields stretch across the super mineral rich soil and are met on the other side by fresh ocean breezes. Further enhancing the terroir is fresh vanilla, which grows here, in the Vanilla Islands.
STARR is an unusually soft and subtle rum, due to its refined distillation and extensive oak aging. Our distillation yields a thinner, lighter rum that is less viscous, or syrupy, and without a hint of funk.
After distillation the rum goes through extensive aging in oak casks—including former whiskey and bourbon casks. The resulting rum is unbelievable smooth, subtle and alluring.
STARR Rum is handmade, all natural and gluten free—with no artificial flavoring agents and absolutely zero sugar of any form added to the rum after distillation.
STARR Rum is distilled from molasses made from sugarcane. These sugars are converted to alcohol in the distillation process.
No additional sugar of any form is added to the rum after distillation (typically molasses or caramel), leaving ZERO SUGAR and ZERO CARBS in a bottle of STARR Ultra Superior Light Rum.
STARR Rum is committed to protecting and preserving the environment at home in Mauritius and around the world.

Our distillery likes to do things the old fashioned way—like cutting the sugarcane by hand for peak freshness and quality.
And sometimes old is new—like how we have utilized energy generated while burning the cane during the sugar extraction to largely power the distillery process since 1926.
Our distillery continues to explore various old and new methods to improve efficiencies and has even set the lofty goal of becoming CARBON POSITIVE by 2030.
