|Carlton Grooms Making Final Inspection|
Rum Company in Key West, Florida. The dropping of the yeast into the first batch of molasses in the fermentation tank last Saturday rum making is underway. Carlton Grooms, Shawn Martin and the rest of the crew ceremoniously dropped the yeast in the first batch Saturday the 12th of August and 2:00 pm to get the first batch started.

The ceremonial tasting of the first batch will follow and hopefully it will bring smiles to the faces of all of us that are involved. The rum will then pass through the solera and mixed with the other components of the sourced blend of aged rums and bottle. This is a huge event that has been in the making for nearly four years and I'm so glad to see it finally getting underway for everyone in the company.
