With a history dating back half a century, here you can find some of the oldest sugar cane mills on the island of Madeira.


The Calheta Milling Company was founded during a period of great industrial development during the second sugar boom at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.
It is a living example of the sugar production of the past, with half a century of history, as it is one of the oldest mills on the island of Madeira.
It produces high quality rum, produced through controlled fermentation and careful distillation, along with sugar cane syrup, obtained by steam cooking sugar cane juice.
Located in the village of Calheta, the factory operates once a year, normally just after Easter Week.
The facility and all the machinery used for the production of sugar cane spirits and syrup, can be visited all year round. It has a tasting room and a cellar-bar.
