The Takamaka Story

Seychellois brothers, Richard and Bernard d’Offay, developed a passion to make rum that would embody the joy and tranquil spirit of the Seychelles. In 2002, the two brothers distilled the spirit and bottled it, to be enjoyed by those making spirited moments of their own, on the islands and beyond.

Unbound by tradition, but enriched by history, the d’Offay brothers set out to create a rum that felt right and tasted great. Blending the past with the future, they embraced the freedom of the Seychelles by creating an authentic Seychelles Rum.
