Hm I am not convinced about this kinda artisanal production…
First of all, the selection what they have is just… boring!
White rum, dark rum, spiced rum… its not, that I don’t find good competitive spirits for that.
Adding vanilla to white rum? I am not absolutely sure, but this might be illegal in most of the rum producing countries. And there is no need, to highlight, how small the quantities are - alcohol is an excellent taste enhancer - adding only a little bit goes a long way!
I would say it is a small and charming producer, but not everything which is small and not industrial is directly artisan!
These are just some thoughts from an opinionated mind!

I don’t know Dominick, This rum sounds pretty good, although further research will be needed, to make a informed decision…

The spiced rum certainly sounded good to me. The rest seemed pretty basic, sure, but there’s not a whole lot you can do with rum without ruining the flavor, and I think they are trying to avoid adding artificial flavors like lime flavored rum.
