Info on scuba diving visits the Trois Freres Distillery at La Plaine St. André and speaks with managing director and co owner, Richard d’Offay. Richard and his brother, Bernard started the business back in 2002 and now Takamaka is a brand known all over the Seychelles and beyond.
We sample the five core products and talk about how Takamaka came into being – originating as a recipe by their grandfather many years ago.
It is interesting to note that the d’Offay family can trace its roots back to one of six founding families of the Seychelles in the 1700’s and today, they produce the rum at an old plantation dating from that era.
Visitors are welcome at the plantation house and to tour the distillery. You can also stay for a meal and a cocktail or two with Takamaka rum!
