Stopped by to get a taster and fell in love with the rums. Super flavorful and great friendly service. Cool gifts also. If you like rum you will love these.

I bought a bottle of their main rum, no flavored stuff. It’s easily the best sipping rum I’ve had. No ice, it just covers the flavor. I drank the bottle in just a few days, much to my partners dismay! Too bad I can’t buy...More
