Join drinks historian Elizabeth Pearce as she regales you with the story of rum's three hundred year old presence in New Orleans. From the city's early days as a French colony through Prohibition and World War II, New Orleanians have sipped the golden nectar of the sugar cane.
In attendance will be Founder, Trey Litel, Distiller, Jeff Murphy, and Master Blender Reiniel Vicente of the award winning Bayou Rum Distillery. They are bringing a very special treat with them – their 5 year aged rum that was created in tribute to New Orleans 300 year anniversary. Dickie Brennan and Bayou Rum founder, Trey Litel dreamed up the idea of this special expression in 2013, and this is its debut public appearance. There is a very limited supply with only 300 bottles of Bayou 300 Special Barrel Reserve allocated for release.
