The center is set on a gorgeous twenty-two acre landscape featuring a tasting bar, gift shop, a renovated historical 1903 farmhouse, ponds surrounded by Louisiana cypress trees, and a sugarcane field. Louisiana Spirits has proudly named their soon to be released rum made from Louisiana sugarcane and molasses. In deciding the name for the new creation, the company let the public help in the final decision. "Louisiana was known as 'The Bayou State' while growing up on Contraband Bayou. Good memories inspired us to celebrate our state by naming our product Bayou Rum. When we tested the name in Louisiana and around the USA it got great reviews. Consumers chose Bayou Rum because it is easy to say, easy to remember, and easy to imagine what we're about: living life to its fullest and having some fun along the way. We're really excited about Bayou Rum and we look forward to the 'inaugural toast' with the citizens of Louisiana!" said Trey Litel, President of Louisiana Spirits. This much-anticipated homegrown rum will be available and distributed throughout the state by early June of 2013. Louisiana Spirits is meanwhile perfecting two varieties of Bayou Rum. Silver Bayou Rum is handcrafted in a traditional pot still using 100% natural Louisiana cane sugar and molasses. Spiced Bayou Rum is a full flavor blended with natural Louisiana ingredients and handcrafted in a traditional pot still. Louisiana Spirits has remained loyal to Louisiana in every aspect of their business and they have remained dedicated to providing a quality rum. "We're creating great tasting rums and we're proud to be part of the internationally renowned Cajun culinary culture. For us, it all starts with local ingredients. We've found the fresh raw materials to be a big differentiator in terms of taste. Louisiana molasses and the raw unrefined Louisiana sugar crystals we use, along with our historic "sugar house" recipe, have helped us to create more flavorful rums for sipping that'll mix exceptionally well for cocktails too. We can't wait for rum drinkers to experience Bayou Rum," said Jeff Murphy, Head Distiller of Louisiana Spirits LLC.
