New York Distillery Introduces a New Rum

Happy First of May to you all -- just 16 days to the beginning of Rick The Rum Runner's Southern Tour 2013....
Always on the search for new distillers making rum or old distillers starting to make rum. The latter is the case here. Albany Distilling Company has launched their Quackenbush Still House Rum. To quote from their website:

Quackenbush Still House Rum 

Colonial Albany's traditional spirit

Our Original Albany rum pays homage to Albany's first distillery, which was established in the mid-18th century and stood just a short distance from where our distillery stands today. The Quackenbush Still House produced an un-aged rum from Caribbean molasses and Hudson River water, fermented with wild yeasts in huge, open wooden vessels. We use modern equipment, better yeast, and a more suitable water supply, but we follow the same recipe and use the methods of our predecessors.
Bright tropical notes shine through the rich, earthy flavor of the Caribbean cane, giving way to a long, creamy, butterscotch finish. Our Original Albany rum is excellent neat or on the rocks, but also brings an exciting layer of character to cocktails.

Varieties Original Albany
Amber (fall 2013)
Spiced (summer 2014)
To further welcome Albany Distilling and introduce Quackenbush (have to educate my spellcheck) Still House Rum to market, I also present this video:
I have to post as a link as the Video refuses to nest here with a nice, graphic display SORRY!

All in all the new rum makes this Olde Rum Runner excited.... You can read their blog, oh -- visit and like their Facebook page too! Hope to taste it soon!!!
