It seems this is a first for my blog (most likely not my last). Dogfish Head is not just a distillery. It is also a brewery. That is not all that uncommon, but, it's also a restaurant. It sounds like a pretty interesting place. So much so I think I'll let their website explain it: “Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is where Dogfish Head all began back in 1995. We have the state's only legal distillery where we make lots of hand-crafted spirits, upstairs in our Rehoboth Beach Brewpub, and a small experimental brewery, so we always have something interesting on tap or in the fermenters for you to try! No matter what the occasion, we know you'll enjoy yourself at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, so come stop by for a visit!”
This east coast representative sounds like a visit that goes well beyond a tour. Let's look at the rums they offer.
1. Dogfish Head Brown Honey Rum is a double-distilled, amber rum aged on American oak and Wildflower Honey. Dark and smooth, this rum has a subtle woody character from the oak aging and a touch of sweetness from the honey. 80 proof.
Recommended to Scotch and Bourbon drinkers. Typically served on the rocks or neat, this flavorful beverage makes a perfect after dinner digestive.
I like the way they present their spirits. The reference to Scotch and Bourbon drinkers is a great starting point. It gives enough of a hint to steer you there.
2. Dogfish Head White-Light Rum is a traditional unspiced rum. This rum is triple distilled and incorporates the same pot-still methods as our other rums. The character of the high-quality molasses we use shines through in this rum. This rum is 80 proof.
The White-Light Rum is available only in at the source, Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE. This rum is not distributed.
While I did not need much of a temptation – What a great reason to visit!!!
3. Dogfish Head Wit Spiced Rhum is a triple-distilled rum aged on Curacao orange peel and coriander. This is a refreshing citrus rum that starts with a note of spiciness and ends with a citrus character. 80 proof as well.
Mixed drink, soda or Dogfish cocktail
So, a name few of you will forget leads us to three rums that sound well worth a trip. East coat Rum Fans – Please stop by and let the Old Rum Runner know what's going on.... Check their website, Facebook and we will stick a pin in our map to stop by and visit ASAP...
