Drink this: two new rums made with La. sugar hit shelves
LACASSINE - Two new rums with local pedigrees have hit store shelves.
Louisiana Spirits this week launched its offerings - Silver Bayou Rum and Spiced Bayou Rum.
Both rums are bottled at 80 proof.
Company President Trey Litel said the Silver uses a combination of molasses and raw, unprocessed sugar, both sourced from Louisiana. The Spiced variety infuses the Silver with a secret blend of spices.
Louisiana Spirits has been in the works for three years. Even though the first products just hit the market, the distillery already is expanding. Construction has begun on a 12,000-square-foot addition, which will hold supplies and an aging room.
