The Rum Bayou®
In 2011, in the heart of Louisiana's so-called “Cane Country,”, three childhood friends realized that in their places where rum was once quietly produced, in the Bayou, i.e. the area of tributaries and canals of the Delta of the Mississippi, America's original drink, was now forgotten. Although its main ingredient, sugarcane, has been cultivated there since the 1700s, no one had yet exploited the abundance of the natural raw material to make a premium rum of the highest quality. The three of them pledged to change the situation, with a rum that the whole world would enjoy. Two years later, Bayou® Rum Distillery opened its doors to the public in Lacassine, Louisiana.
Bayou® Rum is the American handcrafted rum proudly brewed in Lacassine, Louisiana, USA with 100% natural, local, raw sugar cane grown in the rich soils of the famous Mississippi Delta. It is fermented with sugarcane yeast and distilled in one of the best copper still systems in the world, in a privately owned distillery named Louisiana Spirits. Bayou® Rum holds the title of America's #1 Craft Rum, has won over 100 awards and counting.

Bayou® White Rum combines fresh, vibrant flavor and aroma into a multi-layered experience. For 40 days he “rests” in order for the intense, clean aromas to honey and meld. Pot still distillation gives Bayou® White Rum a delicate complexity rarely found in white rum.
