Sometimes - Real Life Rules

Sorry it has been so quiet here but some issues in real life have taken over (getting better - but time consuming) so I am going to make it official...

Rick The Rum Runner Blog is going on Hiatus for a few weeks. We will be back, hopefully better than ever. It's just that we can't give the time YOU deserve as a reader to the Craft Rum Industry, right now. Rather than publish puff and filler, let me invite you to explore the side column on the right.

Do me a favor.... Send me an Email, a comment or contact via American Made rum. Tell me your rum stories, discoveries, experiences, even drinks... Let me know of new Distillers - Why do we still have "Dead States" in our directory?... #RTRR
