Outside Amsterdam Bottling Facility

Our state-of-the-art bottling facility outside Amsterdam in Holland has more than 50 employees, who absolutely love their jobs! Who wouldn't? All day long they are surrounded by the best liquor in the European Union.

For those that have never been inside a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art facility such as where we bottle our Skull Coast 12YO Rum, "Rule One" is Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness. 

Every person who enters the facility is required to don a hair net and lab coat. No exceptions.

Besides the work, there are roaming bands of workers who constantly clean and repair the equipment. Every inch of the facility is given the once over, every day, 365 days a year.

Rum Yeast Propagation

Did you know our rum yeast is only used once? 

We propagate our yeast for each run. Unlike the beer industry, where yeast is recycled and reused multiple times, we take our proprietary strain of yeast and propagate it for each individual run.

Skull Coast TTB Approved!

Just in time for the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, the TTB approved our application for a Importer and Wholesaler Permit this week. So, in addition to our Malt Beverage permit, we can now import and sell our distilled spirits to distributors across the United States.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

If you are looking for an exceptional rum-beer cocktail for this St. Patrick's Day, you may want to consider combining "Skull Spice" rum with Guinness. We found the following recipe online, called the "Morgasm" or "Blackbeard":

2 oz. of Skull Spice rum (over ice)

fill with cola, leaving 2-3 oz. of room on the top 

2 oz. of Guinness

Apparently, the author of "When the Rum is Gone" came upon this particular beer cocktail while traveling in Edinburgh, Scotland. Okay, it's not Ireland, but it includes Guinness -- which is what we were looking for in our search.
