Racking up casks to be conditioned. It's great to add to our family of barrels. We now have over 100! @PrivateerRum
We need a picture of the missing bathtub that used to live in front of the distillery. If anyone snapped a picture we could use it. KUSA wants to put out an APB but needs a photo.
Check out the updates to our website, now featuring additional news and events and details about where you can find Busted Barrel

Well, at least there's always an occasion for a drink!

We're working hard to revive Boston's legacy as a leader in rum production. See what makes our Boston Rum unique, and while you're at it, try the Boston Old Fashioned: muddle an orange slice and maraschino cherry. Add 2 OZ of Boston Rum, 1/3 OZ simple syrup, and a couple dashes of Angostura bitters. Stir. Add ice.

Had some nice visitors yesterday....Alicia Raben and Blake Kapelka from TopGolf Austin, along with Ashley Raben and Janet Budmon. Alicia was the top seller of Blake's creation, The White Hat Hook, during the month of June. We're happy they stopped by to visit our distillery and very grateful to TopGolf for supporting Texas craft distilleries!
