Taste of Indian Ocean rum comes to Mandurah's Bar Therapy
Mandurah residents will have an opportunity to taste a new breed of award-winning rum from the Indian Ocean island of Reunion at a special event on February 23.

The tasting event for the Yummy Rhum, made by the Isautier family and brought to Perth by family member Audrey Isautier, will be held at Bar Therapy in Mandurah on Saturday, February 23 from 2pm.

Only 40 tickets are available and cost $29 per person plus booking fee, which allows people to mix and sample Isautier's Arrange Banana Flambé Rhum in four different ways.

Audrey Isautier has brought her family's unique Reunion Island rum to a special tasting event in Mandurah.


The macerated rum, which is a very different style to that usually encountered in Australia, will be served on the rocks and in three different cocktails, as will samples of two other flavoured rums available.

The rum, which combines the smooth taste of banana with the spicy flavour of flambéed rum, will be offered in cocktails with a Yuzu citrus mixer, as a banana daiquiri, and in a signature cocktail.

Guests will learn how to mix the cocktails and then make their own, while Audrey talks about the rum, her family and the culture of Reunion.

The Yummy Rhum tasting event will be held at Bar Therapy in Mandurah on Saturday, February 23.


Audrey was born on the French-speaking tropical island, which is east of Madagascar near the island of Mauritius, where her family founded the Isautier Distillery in 1845 and still own and operate the business. Isautier exports mainly to France where they sell a million bottles of their rum each year.

Audrey is part of the seventh generation of the family, most of whom still live on the island.

She took off for Australia in 2007 to look for wider sales opportunities and in December 2016 the first bottles of Isautier rum were imported.

Guests will not only sample exquisite cocktails but also learn to make their own.


Three flavours of Isautier Rhum - banana, ginger, and coffee and vanilla - are now available in Australia.

Audrey says the three flavours are very different, with banana appealing particularly to women and the ginger slightly preferred by men, while the coffee seems to appeal to people of both sexes.
