Weekly Spotlight: Owney’s Rum

Raise a glass to The Big Apple with Owney’s Rum.

Crafted by Bridget Firtle, this locally made gem pays tribute to notorious New York rum runner and speakeasy proprietor, Owen ‘Owney’ Madden.

In an effort to extend their limited reserves, Prohibition rum-runners combined smuggled Carribbean rum with locally distilled spirits, creating the drink of choice at speakeasies. A century later, Owney’s rum carries on the legacy of the last era of home-grown New York City spirits.

Made from domestic molasses, this white rum blends pure cane, molasses, and vanilla, along with some well-balanced esters and minerals. It’s excellent in almost any cocktail you throw at it.
