This plant is a wonder of automation that is interlaced with good people that fill the gaps between what the computers can control and what people can do a better job of. This a perfect marriage that leads to huge production numbers as good quality products. The "green operation" in a highly efficient plant is something that really makes this one of the outstanding operations that I have had the opportunity to visit.
By the way there is a new Spiced Rum coming from Auburndale. "Black Robert" is a well balanced and fine tasting rum that has a great potential in the cocktail market and I'm looking forward ti it's introduction in the very near future. I also have to thank the people of the Florida Caribbean Distillery for their hospitality and taking the time to show us around the plant. ;o)
