I have to confess I have been bitten by the Olympic Bug. Spending hours in front of the UltraHD, sweating out medals that I often know about already, but still wonder at the skill and determination it takes to just get to that point.. the point of winning a medal.
Competition is great and new competitors is always a good idea. In Rum that holds true as well. This year we are beginning with at least two new Rums coming onto the market, and most likely more we are not aware of here at RTRR. I find it exciting that we may be able to taste Mid-Best's Rum soon. Mike Anderson has said he'll be sending me samples as soon as he gets them... Watch for that! Additionally I have exchanged E-mails with Landis Rabish, the Distiller for Grand Traverse Distillery, and we are on the list to get a taste of their rum, coming onto market this Spring-Summer. So these two will get considerable coverage here.
Around the Rum world an fresh from American Made Rum, we find:
Hi ho, hi ho...it's off to ferment and distill I go. Yes, I actually do make all my spirits. Unlike lots of craft "distilleries" who purchase liquor already made and package it, we here at Railean Distillers really do make our products from scratch. You can see for yourself during a tour, the still is running and you can smell the tanks of mash fermenting. Better ingredients, better tasting spirits!
MONTANA folk...if you're an Ugly Dog fan you can now ask your liqour store of choice to order it for you. Your store can order any of our spirits (vodka, flavored vodka...including bacon...rum, and gin) and, indeed, in the few short weeks that it has been available have been doing so. Be an UD supporter and tell us what you think!
Happy National Love Your Dog Day! Our distillery dog, Maggie, is enjoying this amazing day outside on the porch, just livin' the dream!
