When it comes to chocolate are we really getting the best from the cocoa beans? Many companies overheat their beans and lose all the goodness from their bars. Some add cream and sugar until the original bean becomes less of a chocolate bar and more a butter bar with little nutrition left. But at Ombar they take their cocoa a little more serious and treat their beans with a lot more care, to produce a great selection of 'new' chocolate that should suit every taste.
Rum Chamarel comes from Mauritius, from a boutique distillery situated 300 metres above sea level at the foothills of the highest mountain on the Island. The distillery has an annual production of 300,000 litres producing all single estate agricole rum from three varieties of sugar cane, Blue, Yellow and Red - and this selection ensures only the finest rum agricole is produced, with the distillery having trialled and tested which sugar cane (out of the twelve varieties used to make rum agricole) makes good agricultural rum.
