The story goes that with one sip of rum, our guest was hooked. No spirit would have quite the same effect on her, ever.  Her life took many twists and turns with rum on the side lines, until one day she knew it was time to make her own.

She has proved all the naysayers, more than wrong, especially after winning Best Rum in the World at the World Rum Awards. After ten years, she continues to relive that first moment with rum over and over again.
