The Old Mill Gold Rum 750ml

SKU #1041976

In 1936, a young dreamer and adventurer from the backwoods of Oregon had an idea. If a fine rum could be found in the West Indies, it might be imported for sale to the loggers and fishermen of the Pacific Northwest. An old atlas in the local library led our hero to the obscure island of St. Croix, in those days accessible only by ship. After a long voyage from San Francisco via the Panama Canal, the discoverer of this exceptional rum made contact with the owners of a local distillery that had for generations been making whole sugar cane rums for the Caribbean market and it was agreed that a special export rum would be custom made for export to the Pacific Northwest. In the Old Mill, that is the centerpeice for our logo, the Cruzans (natives of St. Croix) and my father, Howard M. Wall, penned their deal. Sixty years later, The Old Mill is as hospitable as ever and, thanks to my father's discovery, you too can enjoy the finest, smoothest, sugar cane rum in the Americas.

This is not the rum for your Captain Morgan's & Coke cocktail. Although you could use it and it would be delicious, it would be a waste. The rum was aged in bourbon barrels, which gives the already light and smooth profile some sweet richness; almost like fine whiskey. This is like a single malt for sipping! And it's cheap!

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
