In case you didn’t know, Mampoer is a homemade brandy distilled from fruit (usually peaches around these parts). The drink is known for its high potency - up to 80%!!!! Legend has it, Mampoer is named after the Pedi Chief Mampuru, who lost his land to local farmers after battles with the colonials. The new owners proved better at distilling peach brandy than farming and dedicated their version of moonshine to the big Chief who was ultimately responsible for their gift of land.
A harsh distilling tax was introduced in the late 19th century which ended much of the local Mampoer industry. However, a handful of farms in Groot Marico continued to operate their pot stills, M&M Mampoer being one of them! Visit us to learn more about our rich history, processes and flavors.
