Les Frères de la Côte are a group of importers/bottlers of products exclusively transported by sailboats. The company was created in 2015 by two French sailboat captains: Raphaël and François Mangin. Les Frères de la Côte rums have been bottled since 2017 in their depot located in Saint-Etienne in the Loire. They sail on the Très Hombres, a 32-meter Brigantine-type sailboat, without an engine, for 35 tons of cargo. Since 2010, the Très Hombres has made 12 Atlantic rotations from its home port in the Netherlands. In 2019, a new company (La Compagnie des Frères de la Côte) was created with the aim of rehabilitating the sailboat Zeehaen, Brigantine of more than 45 meters for 120 tons of cargo. The concept is to develop a fleet of cargo sailboats offering an alternative to current transport, and to restore a more human value to the transport of transatlantic goods with a trade closer to the ecology than to the economy.
