The Bestel family is known to have settled in Mauritius around 1800. Originally from Sedan in the French Ardennes-Champagne region, the production of fine liqueurs is part of the family DNA. Following the passion of his father who ran a small business of distilled sugar cane spirits and liqueurs, Frederic started to create his very own Lychee Liqueur during his studies. And he was famous for it.
About the rum
Representing Mauritius as a whole, Solera 5 is a blend of various single distillates from the island, refined in an elaborate process which then reaches its harmonious and aromatic flavour after maturing.
Roasted nuts, chocolate and vanilla aromas. Intense and luscious body. Complexity on the palate, hints of oak, malt and sweetness. Smooth and mouthful finish.
