Hey everyone! I am back. The short hiatus has help me get my wife back on her legs - and I got my head cleared from all those things that clutter ones mind when not sipping a fine rum. Let's get re-introduced with just a gabby catch up from me.
First, Seems there could be some interesting news headed down the road from a local distiller near me. I am all excited at the proposals and will pass them on to you just as soon as I get the OK and concrete details...
Second, I am appealing to any/all who read this article to check around, look at local directories and perhaps just draw on memory and send me any Distillers in YOUR area that make a rum. Heck, even if they don't I can always send them a harassing letter telling them they need to make this fine distilled spirit.
Next, Seems CH Distillery has grown and released some news I feel is noteworthy. Again - this is local to Me and Chicagoland -- But make sure Distillers everywhere that distill Rum let me know and I will pass on information about you.... Any way - CH Distillery - maker of CH Rum and other fine sprits recently released this news:
