The Rock Series
We try and keep these cornerstone spirits always available
Il Keyote Spirits from Agave
Wait...a spirit made from Agave, and it’s not Tequila? Correct. Tequila is a unique product of Mexico, which involves many traditional production techniques. Il Keyote is made from 100% organic Blue Weber Agave sourced from Jalisco, but that is where the comparison to Tequila ends. We ferment, distill and mature Il Keyote a bit more like Brandy than Tequila. This technique provides the true, rich flavor of the agave, which we balance with the woody tones pulled from toasted American white oak barrels. The result is an entirely new style of spirit that you will want to savor. Leave the salt and lime aside.
C.B.D. strives to prove that you don’t have to hide the flavor and quality of all clear Rums behind heavy mixers. Dorymen’s is pleasant drinking neat, on the rocks, or in just about anything. It is fermented from 100% evaporated cane juice sugar, and distilled at a purity high enough to avoid barrel maturation, but low enough to retain subtle flavors and complexity. The clean and creamy character might change your view of rum as strictly a blending spirit, while still blending seamlessly into your favorite Rum cocktails.
Donlon Shanks Amber Rum
Rum legally must derive from sugar cane, but that doesn’t mean every Rum has to be sweet and heavy. Donlon Shanks is fermented from 100% organic blackstrap molasses, which creates a foundation of butterscotch and caramel. We then age it in charred American white oak barrels to balance those candy flavors with a distinct smoky, woodiness typically reserved for Whiskey. The result is a surprisingly smooth and complex Amber Rum that begs to be drank neat or on the rocks. However, a Rum of this caliber adds a new dimension to your liquor cabinet when it comes to cocktails.
