the craft

Deep in the Trois Frères Distillery, Takamaka rum is blended, spiced and aged in a uniquely Seychelles way by the D’Offay family.

grow and crush

Our 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.

ferment and distill

We 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.

French and American oak barrels

age and soothe

Our 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.
