All Things Rum Under the Sun - March 20, 2015

Updating everyone on goings on in the Rum World. Recently we received world of a few changes and other important news -- Let's see what we have:







Tasting Room Has Now Reopened

You told us what you wanted and we made it happen. After about two months of revamping, The Hangar tasting room reopened softly last weekend to some great crowds. We would like to welcome you in this weekend to visit and now stay awhile. The State of Illinois would like you to know that this is not bar but still a tasting room. We can only serve cocktails made with spirits that we craft in house. Our menu is comprised of  simple drinks that we have found during our travels as well as some twists on old favorites. Don't be afraid to ask for your favorite rum or tequila based drink. Most of our Mixers will be made fresh in house as well. Enjoy a drink in a quieter and more intimate setting ( if you actually want to hear what your date has to say) and belly up to the wing bar (shown below) for a Blackhawks game. As always thank you so much fro your support!

Hours (for spring)

Fri 12p-10ish
Sat 12p-10ish

Some things to look forward to:

New Hats Have Arrived!

Out of Charleston - SC we have this news and always great to hear the word is spreading!

Front Porch Press Explores Striped Pig Distillery explores the culture of the south and recently wrote a great feature on Striped Pig. To read about what a great experience they had at the pig, visit their website and share your experiences at the distillery too!

I have been talking (read -- emailing) with Eric Glass, President at Pirate Dog Brand -- who has 5 -- yeah FIVE Rums headed out to me to taste and write about. The Rumson Rums are from Salem, MA, and we always love when the East Coast is hoping with news! Stay tuned here as we await the delivery and -- I will tell all!!!

There is a VERY good chance that we will be adding Fair Game Beverage onto our May Distiller Tour.... Stay tuned here for more!!
We may make some changes -- but the details are in this blog...

So -- as Spring arrives -- Think Rum and Rick, The Rum Runner (#RTRR)
However -- it is always important to remember ----
