By on 14th March 2017
French influences seep into every aspect of the Seychellois lifestyle. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the islanders have a taste for Champagne, as it is woven into their souls. While rum will always be the go-to-drink for the locals, a glass of the bubbly will appear at every special occasion. When that once in a lifetime event does occur, the locals will combine the two to create a heavenly drink that can be enjoyed on earth. Or in our case: in the Seychelles.

By on 14th March 2017
So you want to be a rum connoisseur? Excellent. Put down the pipe and monocle. There’s no need to take ourselves quite so seriously.

Rum is filled with complex flavours and dramatically different characteristics that depend on the type of rum – and the individual tasting it. Relax, and forget about any pretense.
