Ceylon Arrack is a 100% natural spirit distilled from the sap of the coconut flower and aged in halmilla wood. The sap of the coconut flower is the juice that would have eventually turned the coconut flower into a coconut. Collection of the sap is undertaken by 'Toddy Tappers' who can be seen in the early morning on top of coconut trees along the shoreline. The sap has its own natural yeast and starts fermenting naturally once collected. It must be distilled within 24 hours. Ceylon Arrack is one of the few spirits in the world that is a distillate of 100% natural fermentation.
The primary role of wood ageing is to calm the spirit rather than to flavour it. The ageing process is carefully monitored to ensure the natural flavours are enhanced and not overtaken. This process results in a complex liquid with a rich, sweet nose and aromas and flavours of tropical fruit. The 'Toddy' from four to six coconut trees produces a bottle of 70cl Ceylon Arrack.
