150 years of ethanol distilling

Our history dates to 1868 when the first rum distillery in South Africa was built on the site by Monsieur Phillippe, a Mauritian engineer involved in the budding Natal sugar industry.

Back then molasses was sourced from the farm Bishopstoke, a few hundred meters down the road, and rum produced at the distillery was first entered into an international competition at an exhibition in London in 1873, how it faired was not recorded.

The production of ethanol has continued unabated on the same site since then with molasses from the South African sugar industry the primary raw material. As a result of continued production expansion and the reduction in scale of the local sugar industry, our most recent investment to increase capacity and reduce energy demand, converts the site to a new maize-based manufacturing plant.

We produce:

  • 85,000 cbm per annum of high-quality neutral ethanol.
  • 65,000 tons per annum of high protein feed products (DDGS)
  • 4.6 MW of electricity making our operation self-sufficient.
  • and capture 12,000 tons of CO2 for food and industry use.
