Marie Galante, the island of 100 mills, has always been the island of the cane.
It was at the end of the 19th century that the Distillerie BIELLE was founded. She has evolved as her successive owners.
The manufacture of sugar, which has become obsolete in small "sucrottes", has given way to rum distilleries.
The Bielle Distillery continues an old tradition of making farm rum with pure cane juice.
