Greenbar Distillery - A New Find & More Information!

So the last few blogs this year have been all about finding new Distillers. Often the names and lists I find are out dated, too early or otherwise fruitless. Greenbar definitely was not!
Green Bar Collective - LogoAs my MO goes I sent them an inquiry via their contact page and got a delightful response from Mimi Mitrius. She gave me a lot of info and permission to spread the wealth, so to speak.




This is their Rum. Marketed under the Crusoe name, lending a nice island touch, I thought.  Their selections are organic and they try to be as green as possible in their manufacturing. An interesting place -- Their Website.  



To tell you more let's let the Distiller talk:

CRUSOE Organic silver rum

Inspired by the legendary Robinson CRUSOE, we make our mellow, modern rum with the best ingredients and the simplest methods. We start with organic molasses -- the richest and most flavorful. To retain as much flavor as possible, we borrowed a technique from our neighboring California wine makers (micro oxygenation). The results taste like no other rum made and help you craft exceptional rum cocktails like daiquiris and mojitos.

Dense sugar aroma with a caramel, grassy finish pair up to make your rum cocktails even better. CRUSOE shines in classic daiquiris.




I can almost taste it... ! This sounds like one we need to pursue!



They also have a Spiced Rum -- and since this variety has become a real pursuit of mine since my appreciation of it has been refired by truly great craft made spiced rums - I present it here for you!

CRUSOE Organic spiced rum

Inspired by the legendary Robinson CRUSOE, we make our mellow, modern rum with the best ingredients and the simplest methods. We start with organic molasses and sugarcane — the richest and most flavorful. To retain as much flavor as possible, we borrowed a technique from our neighboring California wine makers (micro oxygenation). The results taste like no other rum made and help you craft exceptional rum cocktails like daiquiris and mojitos.

What's a spiced rum without real spices? For each batch of CRUSOE spiced rum, we hand crush + slice whole allspice, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla, and hand zest fresh California oranges. Get ready for BIG flavor.






They have a great list of recipes, just click in teh ingrediant you want (we choose Rum, Duh!) and they even allow you to choose the time of year!! So I dialed up Winter and got this Gem!
