The Seychelles islands, on the other side of the rum world, is the paradise where Takamaka Rum distills, ages and bottles its selection of rums. 

We are excited to branch out and work on our new Creole Craft Series of limited edition aged Rums. Recently we released our first ever Creole Craft Series rum that was hand-picked especially for the 35th Anniversary of Dubai Duty free. We crafted & selected just one single barrel expression that we left to age in a special Port Cask.

Limited to only 350 bottles, the Creole Craft Series is extra special in that each batch produced is a one-of-a-kind barrel expression, after aging it is released and bottled at 53.6% ABV. The labelling & waxing is done by hand and each bottle is individually numbered and signed off by our head distiller David Boulle.

It is also our unique tropical aging environment that contributes to the distinct flavours we create and finishes the rum perfectly.

Bernard d’Offay (Co-Founder) “The Creole Craft Series is particularly special to us as it represents our evolving vision and philosophy as rum makers. Our hope is that you enjoy drinking this special rum as much as we have enjoyed making it!”

This one-off edition is sold exclusively at the Dubai International Airport Duty Free & the La Plaine St André gift shop at the distillery. Any true rum lover and connoisseur will undoubtedly want to add our Creole Craft Series rum to their collection to be served on only the most special of occasions as once it’s finished, it’s finished.

We look forward to releasing more special limited edition rums in the future.
