Hemingway Rum Company Bottles First Bottling Pilar Blonde in Key West Yesterday

     An exciting day at the Hemingway Rum Company yesterday.  We Bottled our first bottles of rum.  This has bee a 4 plus year project from the start of building the distillery and today it was culminated when the first bottle of Key West Pilar Blonde rum came off of the end of the bottling line.

     The Government hoops we had to jump through were cleared and we started distilling the rum in , but Irma brought the operation to a screeching halt with the damage to the plant and especially the bottling line.  We have continued to distill since October and today all of the final government approvals were given and we were able to finally have rum in bottles that was made here in the Key West Plant.

     When the bottling of the dark and the blond expressions is completed, you will finally be able to by Key West Pilar Rum at the tasting room in the distillery.
