Smooth Sailing RUMS

Salt air breezes, toes in the sand and sunshine on your face are all synonymous with island living on Nantucket.  No other spirit can make a cocktail that emulates life on an island quite like rum does. Rum, made from sugarcane or a molasses product, is the host ingredient to many of the classic tiki-bar cocktails. Think of a thirst quenching Lime Daiquiri, a fresh from your garden Mint Mojito, and a Nantucket Island favorite, Dark and Stormy.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie of Épernay Wine & Spirits gives us a brief history and tasty tour of rums you should be sipping with easy cocktail recipes for your next island themed gathering.

Sailing vessels carried exotic trade from the colonies and introduced Caribbean...Read More >

Since it is summer and the sun happens to be out, no better time to also bring the rum out! Rum is synonymous with island living. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be an island full of palm trees in order to take advantage of the benefits of rum drinking, but an island that just happens to be surrounded by water with a culture of sun, sand, surf and sometimes a little sailing, fishing or other various watersports.
