One for your perfect summer cocktail.

Ever since the good ol’ days of Prohibition, there have been no new artisan distilleries in Northwest Indiana, let alone in Hammond. Then came the 18th Street Distillery, the only operating distillery in the city of Hammond. So, what are they all about? Not rushing and taking cheap shortcuts because of demand, for one thing. Using the finest ingredients and time-honored methods, you can currently try their award-winning range of Spirits from Rye Whiskey, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, and Gin.

Crafted from blackstrap molasses and sugar cane, 18th Street Distillery Rum is your perfectly balanced tropical Rum. Bottled at 45% ABV, expect an abundance of tropical fruit, sweet molasses, and subtle hints of sugar cane. This is your sign to enjoy a summer cocktail night even when it’s cold outside.

Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
In 1901, The Hammond Distilling Company was the second largest distillery in the nation, producing 25,000-50,000 gallons of alcohol per day.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
