All about making whisky
Founded by Richard and Bernard d’Offay in 2002, the Trois Frères distillery is on Mahé island in the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean. Produced from sugarcane grown in the Seychelles on granitic, non-volcanic soil, Takamaka rums are characterised by a terroir that is very different from that in other rum-producing regions. Takamaka produces two types of rum, a particularly aromatic, agricultural style ‘heavy rum’, distilled in traditional pot stills, and a ‘light rum’ distilled in column stills. The Offay brothers’ entire range has been created from these two types of rum.
