Bayou® Rum is craft distilled from locally grown fresh Louisiana sugarcane. Our signature recipe uses 100% single estate molasses produced by the oldest family-owned and operated sugar mill in the United States. We then distill every batch by hand using copper pot stills and age it in 200L bourbon and sherry casks. It’s craft spirit making at its best.
In 2011, deep in the heart of Sugarcane Country, three childhood friends had a revelation.
Once quietly produced in the backwaters of the Bayou, rum, America’s original spirit, had become a forgotten one.
The ingredient central to rum, sugarcane, had been cultivated in their home state since the 1700s, but no-one had yet harnessed this abundant natural resource to create a top-notch, premium rum. They vowed to change that by crafting a Louisiana rum for the world to enjoy.
Two years later, the Bayou® Rum Distillery opened their doors in Lacassine LA. Utilizing traditional methods with state-of-the-art technology from fermentation through distillation, maturation and bottling, Bayou Rum has earned its title of #1 Craft Rum in America*. Today, Bayou Rum is available in the UK, delivered direct to your door from DISTOO.
