WHAT IS CHEF DISTILLED?

For centuries, Distillers have been making the sweet libation...Rum. 

Some legal, some not so legal.

 

One common task shared by rum Distillers and Chefs alike is cooking sugar cane in big

kettles or "stills." We are Chefs first and Distillers second, so our process is called

Chef Distilled!

 

This combination of skill brings out the best flavors in our original white rums,

made with Florida sugar cane and with infusions of Coconut, Vanilla Creme Brulee

and Real Key LIme. Our 6 times distilled specialty rums are sure to twist your taste buds on an adventure!

 

We are still "Chefs," so we jar rum cakes, fresh fruits and savory vegetables.

Why is our craft different, you ask?  Because homemade has no preservatives!
