American Made Rum - The Page

The Facebook site for Rick the Rum Runner(RTRR) is American Made Rum(AMR). As I have explained in the past -- I love rums world-wide, but wanted to pare down the selection, so I looked at Craft rums, made here in the US. I am slowly getting the list active here on the blog (look to the left of this story and you'll see the column marked Places You Should Visit and scan down to RUM DISTILLERS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.) The list is by state and when populated will list under each state the distillers that I know of in that state. I will always search for more and hope that you, the faithful, will let me know of any you find. Remember, many distillers that make Vodka, Whiskey, Bourbon etc also make Rum, so the search goes on...

Having said all that -- I wanted to cross-post things sent to AMR. We have friends in the industry and fans of the spirit, that make the page come alive.... Here are some examples:

Michiana Humane Society and SPCA will be hosting the first of many “Yappy Hours” tonight at Journeyman Distillery with a giveback evening to raise money for homeless animals. This event, from 6-8pm (est), will allow owners to bring their dogs to the bar and the opportunity to socialize together, while enjoying a beverage and treats created by the staff supporting the cause.

Bill Welter & Johanna Fridrich, of Jouneyman Distillery, are big animal lovers and were excited to help the Humane Society with this giveback night. “We were looking for a unique location, that is pet friendly, to host our first “Yappy Hour,” said Director of Marketing, Cathi Rogers, “and with Journeyman Distillery housed in the historic Featherbone Factory and Journeyman’s support of our shelter, it is the perfect place.”

The Michiana Humane Society and SPCA is a non-profit animal shelter which cares for approximately 1,500 homeless, abandoned and abused animals annually in La Porte County, IN and Berrien County, MI. Founded in 1920, MHS does not receive support from any governmental agency; its operations are funded exclusively through private donations. Michiana Humane Society is located at 722 Hwy 212, Michigan City, IN 46360.
