Deep in the Trois Frères Distillery, Takamaka rum is blended, spiced and aged in a uniquely Seychelles way by the D’Offay family.
Their organic sugarcane is grown in four different regions of Mahé by an independent cooperative of farmers. Once harvested it is crushed on site at La Plaine St André.
They ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Distillation takes place in three copper stills, two pot stills for flavour and a rectifying column for purity.
The aged rums are matured in French and American oak barrels, resulting in a soothing of the spirit as it rests under our unique tropical climate.
These estate-produced barrels are then expertly blended with some of the finest aged rums, local essences and water sourced from the Vallée for its high mineral content. The result is a luxurious rum, unique to the Seychelles.
The original and most enduring in popularity, the flagship Spiced Rum is a harmonious blend of rums selected for their complementary characteristics.
Artesian waters and local spices provide the deliciously smooth top notes and serenely pure finish, followed by lingering notes of vanilla and caramel.
Although you should feel free to sip this rich golden rum short and neat or with cola for a long classic, it is best enjoyed in a hammock.
