Paul Artrip, ‘The Rum Daddy’, will be hosting the American Artisan Rums booth at the main Rum Renaissance event on Saturday May 8. According to Paul, ‘America’s entrepreneurial spirit is alive and kicking in artisan and micro distilleries across the USA, and rums are leading the way. Rum was America’s first widely-produced spirit, and American ingenuity is fighting the slow economy to celebrate USA know-how and creativity.’
Anthony Graziano, Editor-in Chief for Chilled Magazine, says: ‘Micro distilleries are popping up all over America and they are not just for manufacturing craft beer anymore. With the resurgence of American Artisan Rum over the last few decades, we have been introduced to some real quality rums produced right here in the U.S. We look forward to Paul showcasing these American spirits in an upcoming issue of Chilled Magazine as well as at this years Rum Renaissance Festival’.
The Rum Renaissance Festival (May 5-9) is the largest rum and cane spirits festival in the Western Hemisphere. Rums from around the world are showing at this event. Tickets are required, and can be purchased through the event website. www.rumrenaissance.com
