Tour and rum tasting at Siesta Key Rum (of Drum Circle Distilling), Florida's oldest craft distillery! Participants are encouraged to COME EARLY (2:30pm) to taste rums (helps participants put some of the tour in context - seriously). Tasting is also encouraged after the tour.
Pre-registration required (click "Tickets" or "Register" button) by Thursday October 25, 5pm.
The tour (beginning at 3pm) will include approximately 20 minutes of a short history of the company, an overview of some of the big awards that our small company has won, an explanation of what makes our spiced and toasted coconut rums taste so good, and an overview of where our rums are available. After that we will explain the rum making process from mashing to fermentation to distillation. This will be followed with a discussion of barrel aging. The tour will make a final stop in the packaging room to see how Siesta Key rum is put into bottles.
