The best American craft spirits deserve to be recognized by rum enthusiasts and collectors at The American Rum Portfolio.
The Miami Rum Renaissance Festival has established a dedicated presence for American Rums to spotlight the emergence of these craft spirits and deliver a unique learning experience for festival participants.
While many of these American rum products have widespread distribution across the United States, and internationally, some local and regional brands are not well known to the growing population of rum enthusiasts and collectors in the USA and abroad.
The American Rum Portfolio showcases the best American Rums at a venue that attracts the largest concentration of rum experts, professionals, consumers and press to establish greater awareness and appreciation for these emerging spirits.
The editors of Robs Rum Guide are currently tracking more than 150 rum producers in the USA, and the list of growing.
the number of distilleries now producing rum in the United States is growing at a incredible rate, igniting what what can only be described as a new American Rum Revolution.
“We’re delighted to search and discover the very best American rums to share with our friends at Miami Rum Fest and Trade Expo,” said host Robert Burr, publisher of Robs Rum Guide. “From Alabama to Wyoming, from California to Maine, from Florida to Washington, we’re reaching out to American Rum Producers at a time when the craft rum distilling movement is burgeoning, flourishing and expanding greatly.”
We call this the New American Rum Revolution.
According to the editors of Robs Rum Guide, the number of distilleries now producing rum in the United States is growing at a incredible rate, igniting what what can only be described as a new American Rum Revolution.
“In the past few years, more national, regional and local rum distillers are gaining well-deserved attention — with many making their mark as true artisan spirits by winning awards and setting new standards for authentic, hand-made rum,” said Burr. “It’s nothing short of a rum revolution — changing the American rum industry, bringing back the art of craft distilling, presenting American rum in a most favorable light by emphasizing the quality aspects of small production.”
Before the American revolution, more than 8,000 distilleries in the American colonies were producing rum from the plentiful supply of molasses available through trade with Caribbean islands. Most ceased production by the time prohibition decimated the American spirits industry.
Now, it’s coming back. Rum will once again be seen as the original authentic Spirit of America.
