The Sucrerie de Bois-Rouge is on the coast 3km north of St-André. During the cane harvest (July to December) visitors are shown around the huge, high-tech plant, following the process from the delivery of the cut cane to the final glittering crystals. The two-hour tour includes the neighbouring distillery, where the by-products (cane juice and molasses) are made into rum. From January to June, you can only visit the distillery. Children under seven years aren't allowed into the refinery. There's a shop, Tafia et Galabé , where you can sip (and buy) the good stuff.
