Here’s straight from the horse’s mouth:
Bridging worlds has always been our goal. We did it by uniting the finest rum and coffee from El Salvador. Now we’re ready to innovate rum once again.
Rum was once the most popular spirit in America. But in the mid 1700 s, higher taxes on molasses collapsed the industry, making space for a new spirit of choice: rye whiskey. By the end of the century, thousands of small distilleries appeared all over Pennsylvania, Maryland and the surrounding states. A new era was born.
It all started on a trip through Latin America. We didn’t really know what to expect and we certainly never thought one small, raw country would blow our minds as much as it did. But that’s exactly what happened and that’s why we’re here now, introducing Ron Colon to the world.
The vision? Creating the perfect blend of flavours, inspiring us and our fellow bartenders to create new rituals and cocktails centered around an entirely new take on rum. Because who doesn’t want to experience some surprise every now and then?
We were fascinated by this place that produces some of the finest sugar cane and coffee in the world. As bartenders, the thought of combining these top-notch ingredients with the rich flavour of rum blew our minds. And if it blows ours, we think it may just blow yours too.
