D-Rum roll please…

Taconic distillery calls Hudson Valley home. Surrounded by historic landmarks and bountiful farms, the Coughlin family set up shop in 2010, converting a portion of Laured Beef Farms into Rolling Hills. The whopping 113-acre farm proved to be a great segue into the local, Duchess County agribusiness market.

Hudson Valley is a fertile area in terms of gastro-culture. A richly historical, famed Wine-producing region, it is also home to a world-class culinary institute. Taconic prides itself on preserving a storied Bourbon Whiskey tradition. From George and Martha Washington’s home, to the Great Estates of the Vanderbilt's, Roosevelt's and Rockefeller's, “Bourbon Whiskey has been savored for generations.”

These Taconic hippies like their Spirits non-chill filtered and unadulterated to retain the Whiskeys true nature. They distill their Whiskeys below 160 proof and age them in Coopers Select, Char #3 new oak barrels made by the Independent Stave Company.

Taconic Distillery’s Rolling Hills Rum is distilled from sugarcane molasses and aged for two years in Bourbon barrels. The Rum gets its final beauty rest in recently emptied Taconic Distillery’s Founder Rye Whiskey barrels, finishing for a few months in them. The sugarcane elixir is then cut to 80 proof, with fresh spring water from the Taconic farm. A truly succulent Rum with rich vanilla, and caramel notes.

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.
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.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
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).
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 (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.
