Takamaka rum is produced in the Seychelles, on the island of Mahe in the Trois Freres distillery by the D'Offay family. The estate was founded on an old tropical spice plantation site, La Plaine St Andre, by French settlers over 200 years ago.

The distillery has been operating since 2002, and is the first and only commercial rum producer and exporter in the Seychelles. The sugarcane used is grown in four different regions of Mahe by independent farmers, and is then crushed, distilled, aged and blended on site. Takamaka rum is named after a local bay on the island and is the name of local tree.

The white distillate is the beating heart of all Takamaka rums, the Takamaka White is a no-nonsense white rum, distilled to an ABV of 96% then blended with pure island spring water to bottling strength.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Peaches in syrup, sugary Nice Biscuits and plump sultanas dusted with cinnamon. A funky hint of sugarcane appears after a minute or so in the glass.

Palate: Clean and soft as it opens, with hints of red grape and lemongrass. Slowly develops an elegant spiciness.

Finish: Milky tea, peppercorn and blueberry muffin.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
