Grays was founded in 1935 and has developed over the years into a major distributor and retailer for wine and spirits, food and beverages, cosmetics and fragrances, hygiene and home care products, consumer goods and pharmaceuticals and much more in Mauritius. It is a subsidiary of Terra (Harel Family), itself in existence since 1838. Grays is always innovating and moving more and more towards the international market. Thus, New Grove rum developed in 2005 in partnership with the neighboring Reunion Island, Group Quartier Francais, is its flagship intended for export only.
