Deep in the Trois FrÃ©res 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 MahÃ© by an independent cooperative of farmers. Once harvested it is crushed on site at La Plaine St AndrÃ©.
They ferment is 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 VallÃ©e for its high mineral content. The result is a luxurious rum, unique to the Seychelles.
Inspired by the rich heritage of its home, La Plaine St. AndrÃ©, this premium rum is a labour of love, aged for 8 years in American oak.
