4 Favorites for National Rum Day

Its August 16th and that means its National Rum Day! Though the spirit is often associated with the warm Caribbean islands, rum has a rich history in the US and has been made in New York since the first rum distillery was established on Staten Island in 1664. 

We're celebrating this great holiday with 4 of our favorite rum classics. Cheers!
