Welcome to the next chapter of the Tapanga Rum story. Crafted with passion. Distilled by hand. Tapanga – a global Rum with an African spirit.

The first premium, single-estate rum in South Africa, each bottle of our rum is filled with the dreams of every member of the Tapanga Family.
Each sip unfolds a piece of our story. The legacy of Tapanga is intertwined with the legacy of Africa.
From our pre-dawn rising and the smell of burning sugar cane, to the blisteringly hot and humid days, every part of this process creates the pattern of our daily lives.

A rum like this, is only possible through an unhurried aging process that sets the bar at extraordinary. Crafting rum for the connoisseur of fine spirits.

This is our story and we cannot wait to share it with you.


Our rum is an Africole Rum, bottled in limited batches, to create an exclusive product for those who seek to enjoy a distinctive, quality, African Rum. We grow the best varieties of sugar cane here on the farm, which are then harvested by hand and put through our press to squeeze out the fresh cane juice.

Africole Rum is made by distilling the liquid produced from fermented fresh sugar cane juice. Our cane juice is pumped into our fermentation tanks and a combination of wild and specifically cultured yeast is added to bring out the best in our fermenting process.

We are grateful for the privilege of getting to wake up at dawn every day, and pursue our passion of crafting a premium African Rum. Ours is a unique process and we are proud of our single-estate heritage.
