August Spotlight: Old New Orleans Rum

Having just spent a week in New Orleans carousing with other spirit and cocktail bloggers, listening to various expert panels discuss the past, present, and future of spirits and cocktails, and sampling a few wares from various producers, one might say I’ve got the Crescent City on the brain.

I had so much fun in New Orleans that I’m going to dedicate the entire month of August to Old New Orleans Rum.  Starting next week with a review of the distillery tour I was lucky enough to join while I was in town and then running through the entirety of their line of rums – from white to amber to spiced to the 10 year old – we’ll make some cocktails, open a few bottles, and talk about how to make rum with a perfume still.

So I’ll bring the rum, you bring the crawfish po’boy and the gumbo, and we’ll spend the month of August having fun, cajun style.

    Oh yes rumdood.
    We look forward to yo’fine speakin’easy. Please do make sure to keep us emailed on every post, but we’ll keep it up too.
    I lived right around the corner from Mich’s studio over on Chartres in the Marigny before the storm…BS (HA!). But we used to drink his rum at my friend Valentine’s porch across the street and listen to Frenchman sing.

    I hung you onto today’s Ladda, and in our 2nd Line too!

    Thank you, Noble Mon,
