NCAA Basketball Finals Tonight!

So what do New Holland White Rum and their Superior Single Barrel Rum as well as Big Cedar Distilling's Castaway Rum and their Spiced Rum have against Barrel House Distilling Co's Oak Rum? Well, their teams are playing against each other for the NCAA Basketball Title. Tonight! What a great time to pour a sample of each and savor them as you watch the game unfold. Let's let New Holland speak first:

Representing Michigan!

Freshwater Rum is a series of rums inspired by the majestic Great Lakes. Huron white rum is distilled from a wash of fermented cane-sugar molasses. It is clean, bright rum with a delicate sweetness and hints of vanilla. Freshwater Huron is perfect for cocktails and Great Lakes outings by boat or on shore.
AT A GLANCE Type: White Rum Proof: 80

AT A GLANCE Type: Single Barrel Rum Proof: 105

Representing Kentucky!

Barrel House Brewing and Distillery is well known for their beers, their Oak Rum is a pleasant addition and ready for enjoying as a Kentucky supporter in tonight's basketball game. Here let them explain:

Rum in Kentucky?  Isn’t that a seafaring drink?  Well, that’s a common misconception – but Rum is actually a drink of the Americas – a favorite in early colonial times.  While Kentucky may not be a seaside state – it has more navigable inland waterways than any other state in the lower 48!  Nautical themes are common along many of the lakes and rivers scattered throughout the commonwealth, where the riverboat reigned as king in days gone by. With a hint of Kentucky flavor brought out by bourbon barrel aging, we think OAK RUM will appeal to bourbon and rum aficionados alike!

Let's hope for a great game and good rum!
