For your Wednesday entertainment we present a look at the bottling line at Florida Caribbean Distillers. Warning: This could make you thirsty. Enjoy!
On a recent trip to Florida Caribbean Distillers in Auburndale, Florida we were treated to an insider’s tour of their gigantic facility. It was wonderful, high tech and inspiring. The sheer volume of liquor being produced at this place is nothing short of amazing.
Florida Caribbean produces several of their own brands including the entire line of Ron Carlos rums and Black Roberts Spiced, but much of their work is through contracts with a number of big names in the rum world. On the day we were there, they just happened to be doing some bottling work for one of those big names – Cruzan. Here’s what it looks like when the bottling line is dialed in and cranking out thousands of liters of great rum.
