The Caribbean Journal Announces the 10 Best Rums Made In the United States

     The legacy of rum made in the United States in the past few years has grown and grown.  Today we can find rums made in the United States that have reached a level that can match some of the rum produced in the rest of the world.  It is good to see more and more quality rum being produced here in the states.  I have had to pleasure to know many of the American rum distillers and enjoy the passion that hey are putting into their spirits.  The are every bit as driven to produce the high quality to be able to compete in the international markets.

    "More and more people are appreciating the wonder of rum. And in America, more and more people are making rum. Yes, there is something of a rum boom in the United States, hearkening back to the colonial period when the US was a hub of rum making. While American rum still isn’t quite up to the level of the rums in the Caribbean (with some exceptions), the fact that rum production is surging is only a good thing for the spirit. In Rum Journal’s annual July 4 tradition, we celebrate the best rums made in America. (Note: this list always covers only the 50 US States, not the US’ Caribbean territories). Here is the fourth annual list of the Best Rums in America."

  • 1. Siesta Key Rum:  Florida
  • 2. Papa's Pilar Rum:  Florida
  • 3. Richland Rum:  Georgia
  • 4. Miami Club Rum:  Florida

   These are the 10 Rums made in the United States according to The Caribbean Journal, congratulations to all of the 2016 winners.   I'll be looking forward to watch the progress of all of the American rum producers during the next year as I have watched them for the past number of years and see the progress that they keep on making with their new expressions.
