I have been traveling - not searching rums this last trip, but always looking. I have a few things to be=ring up today -- one is a spirit distiller I had missed in our trip through the Carolinas.
While speaking with Chris Jude at Fair Game, he mentioned Sutlers Spirit Company. I unfortunately did not make a visit there but now that things are more settled, I plan to make contact.
Going to their Website we find that right now they offer a Gin. I will endeavor to find if Rum is in the plan.
As far as me, we will look at a few other Distillers as Summer progresses. We are planning a trip to Michigan in August so you can be sure we may hit some of our favorites like Northern Latitudes, Grand Traverse Distilling etc. I will share what we find with you at that time.
I know GTD has expanded their distribution, now having a tasting room, I believe in the main street area of Traverse City. I will find out and check to see if the Rum has hit the shelves, and record a taste!!
In the Summer, Rum makes a real appearance with great summer drinks. Today we are going to offer a couple of drink recipes. Now, I will recommend types of rum - but leave the brand(s) up to you! (Recipes are for One Drink)
We will stick with Spiced Rum for these two..
