TAKAMAKA IS NOT JUST MADE IN BUT MADE FROM THE SEYCHELLES. FROM THE PUREST ARTESIAN WATERS AND ISLAND GROWN SUGARCANE, RIGHT THROUGH TO THE PASSION INFUSED BY ITS CREOLE CULTURE, TAKAMAKA IS MORE THAN JUST A RUM.

something in the water

One secret to our rum is the water collected from the Vallée de Mai. Here grows the endemic coco de mer palm, that the Victorians named the Tree of Knowledge. Well, the locals seem to know good rum when they taste it, so perhaps there’s something in it.

the legend of coco de mer

The Seychelles is the only place on Earth where you will find the legendary ‘coconut of the sea’. Many people believe this curiously shaped fruit to be a potent aphrodisiac. Others say that the coco de mer trees make love on stormy nights. We believe what happens in Eden stays in Eden.

Takamaka is crafted and blended by the d’Offay brothers in Au Cap on the Island of Mahé, at the family’s historical La Plaine St André homestead. Founded by early French settlers, the Estate has been home for over 200 years to an entrepreneurial family culture and tradition. It remains a historically important settlement with a long association to farming tropical spices, which today are blended into Takamaka rums.

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.

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.

blended to perfection

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.
