Makers Tastes --- Drum Circle Distilling

Just reading these Makers tastes I have begun to really learn much about rum. Join us on this trip south.

From the great state of Florida we welcome Drum Circle Distilling. Their rum has the "oh so warm and sweet," name of; Siesta Key Rum...
Let's look at their variety. Sparing no time:
Siesta Key Spiced Rum

Florida rum with real spices and honey

Siesta Key Spiced Rum is hand-crafted in small batches in Sarasota, Florida at our small, artisan distillery. We make our spiced rum by infusing our award winning rums with real spices and then adding honey for a bit of sweetness. We do not use any artificial flavors or sweeteners and you can taste the difference. Siesta Key Spiced rum is unlike any mass market spiced rums. But don't rely on our opinion, SK Spiced rum took home the first place, Best in Class medal at the biggest rum competition/festival in the world, the RumXP International Tasting Competition. SK Spiced was also named one of the best artisan products in the United States by Cooking Light magazine for 2012.

Next we look into the bottles and see:
Siesta Key Silver Rum

A taste of paradise in every sip…

Our silver rum is made with molasses from Florida-grown sugar cane, triple-filtered water, and a secret set of yeasts. We have a unique distillation and filtration process that results in a pure, flavorful and incredibly smooth rum that you are sure to enjoy straight or mixed.
We are also pleased to highlight that Siesta Key Silver Rum took the Best in Class Gold medal at the largest rum festival/competition in the western hemisphere, the RumXP International Tasting Competition, beating out several large well known brands in a blind taste test. Earlier batches also won a Silver Medal at the 2010 International Rum Festival, a Silver Medal at the highly competitive New York International Spirits Competition and a Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

An old saying is – if you have silver – you'll want gold and Drum Circle Distilling does not disappoint.

Siesta Key Gold Rum

High-Quality, Smooth and Flavorful

Siesta Key Gold Rum is hand-crafted in small batches in Sarasota, Florida at our small, artisan distillery. We make our rums from start to finish, using local 100% Florida grown sugar cane, triple-filtered water, and distillation in a true copper pot still.
Our Gold Rum is aged in charred American oak barrels to bring out it's wonderful color and vanilla notes. The result is a high-quality, smooth and flavorful rum that can be enjoyed
sipped neat or over ice, or used as the base for your favorite rum cocktails.
So, we've made it as far south as Florida to find fine crafted rum.... Where to next?
Remember, if you run out.... lick the glass!!
