Donlon Shanks, Cannon Beach (pictured above)
Mike Selberg's rich Donlon Shanks amber just mopped up at the American Distilling Institute's competition, judged the best dang rum made in America. Gee whiz.
Pacific, Bull Run
An exceptional coconutty, almost creamy, cane-distilled, lightly barrel-aged rum that stirs up thoughts of a daiquiri or pina colada before you even mix it.
Distiller's Cut White, New Deal
New Deal rotates its rums available at the distillery, but they plan to keep this one in stock. It's clean, light, lovely and probably the best they've yet produced.
Below Deck Ginger, Eastside
The Below Deck Ginger rum is mild and citrusy enough to mix with soda and cider alike.
Three Rocks Spiced, Edgefield
The chocolate notes from the cocoa nibs in this rich spiced rum, which is aged in bourbon barrels, drop the bottom into unexpected richness.
