This is a blog that will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. We will travel to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring you the Rumstyles of all those we come in contact with.
The Mob Museum, The National Museum of
Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, has reinvent the way guests experience
history when they visit The Underground, a permanent
exhibition dedicated to the history of Prohibition, that first opened in April
2018.Guests touring The Underground
will learn about Prohibition-era bootlegging and rum running. Prohibition shut
down thousands of breweries and distilleries across America, but it could not
eliminate the public’s desire for alcohol. It simply forced the brewing and
distilling of booze into the shadows, where it became the purview of organized
crime syndicates. Indeed, Prohibition led directly to the rise and
proliferation of the Mob in America.
Ther Underground Speakeasy
The Underground will take visitors on an
uncommonly vivid journey back in time: Situated discreetly in the basement of
the Museum, The Underground houses a real working distillery and speakeasy.
While visiting these vibrant, immersive environments, guests will be compelled
to ponder the time when consuming alcohol was not only a criminal act, but also
bred secret watering holes that became the most glamorous places to be.
artifacts found in the distillery and speakeasy will add depth and context to
the experience. Items to be on display include a beaded chiffon dress, ca.
1926, which is an example of the new and bolder fashions that became popular
during the Prohibition era due to the rise of flapper culture, as well as a
5-gallon whiskey still, one of the smaller home stills used to make alcohol
with luxurious Art Deco-inspired design motifs, and a distinctive sense that
something illicit is afoot, The Underground speakeasy will feature The Mob
Museum’s own house-distilled spirits and house-brewed beer, as well as tempting
Prohibition-era cocktails. Genuine Moonshine made onsite from corn mash will be
the centerpiece of the cocktail collection, which will also feature a full bar
including the Museum’s proprietary vodka, gin and rum.Tickets for the Mob Museum’s distillery tour
