Pirates of the Great Lakes, ahoy!

When the two college buddies — Brett Vander Kamp and Jason Spaulding — launched their brewery in 1996, they knew their hometown of Holland, Michigan was in need of a breath of fresh air. What they didn't know was that their operation would be among those leading the charge for craft brewing and distilling. It's ridden the new wave well, growing into a powerful force over the years, yet staying independent. They've been doing various styles of beer before expanding into Spirits in 2005, distilling Whiskey, Rum, Gin, and everything in between.

Don't get us wrong, we're all for a nice cold brewski, but we're even happier to see them put their craft brewing expertise and philosophy to use in distilling. Freshwater Rum is just that — inspired by the Great Lakes, made from molasses and cane sugar that are fermented on-site, pot-distilled twice, then aged for 6 months in wine, Whiskey, and fresh barrels. It's on the young side, but that barrel variety brings plenty of complexity and richness to the table. Do take a seat, why don't you?

Dark sugar and caramel sweetness notes ahoy! There's some dried fruit and wine in there, and the oak spice balances it all.

If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
