Release news: St. George California Agricole Rum
July 2013 | St. George California Agricole Rum is now available! Formerly known as Agua Libre (the name under which it won a Good Food Award and a gold medal in a Ministry of Rum blind tasting), our rum now has a new name and a new bottle. St. George California Agricole Rum is comparable to some of the finest rhums from Martinique, but made from 100% California sugarcane. If you haven’t already had the chance to try it, get ready for a seriously wild, aromatic spirit. We love this rum in a Hemingway Daiquiri, a Ti Punch, and other classic rum drinks—and Maggie Hoffman of Serious Drinks says it “makes one of the best Cuba Libres I’ve ever tried.”
We crushed ~150,000 pounds of fresh California sugarcane in order to make a batch of St. George California Agricole Rum large enough to distribute nationally. Bottles are now making their way to stores and bars in California, DC, Florida, Illinois, and Oregon—with many more states on the way. If you’re interested in trying it, get in touch (info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stgeorgespirits.com, 510-769-1601) so we can help you find a watering hole that can pour you a taste or a retailer that will sell you a bottle of your own.
