Our rum & vodka is small batch hand crafted right here at our production facility in Kingman, AZ from a raw material (molasses). It does not contain any additives,preservatives or molasses (for coloring) or NGS, and no aspect of our production has been outsourced. We are Arizona proud!! Support your local distillery! Our customer favorite the Agave, is sweet and smooth, and our Dark rum and Barrel reserve rums are the biggest award winners (although all have won awards). Come by and see us at the distillery!

May Days...lead to June events

I hope the days of May are treating everyone well! It's been a wonderful windy May for us here in Kingman, and we are all truly sorry about all the fires on every side of us! The sun & temperature couldn't be more perfect however! In June, look for us at the Flagstaff Beer fest! Come up to Flag and cool off from that first real hot month of summer!

Mittincoff Cocktail

by Vern Whaley, from Canada, one of our guests today... 2 cups of ice cream, 2 cups coffee, and 1 cup of rum. (Best with the Agave). Mix well, and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, mix again and drink. Makes 4 servings? That all depends....

Cocktail Recipe of the Week; Dark Manhattan

Time for a Recipe! This one is from Paula Shuffler, who has sent this in as one of her favorites. She says "I am a Manhattan fan, so decided to make a Gold Miner Manhattan and it has become my favorite". So here is another Manhattan recipe! 2-3 oz Gold Miner Dark Rum, 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1-2 dashes angostura bitters, and a splash of maraschino cherry juice. Garnish with a cherry. Serve on the rocks or not in a cocktail glass, or for a classic tourch, combine ingredients in a shaker and serve in a chilled martini glass with cherry dropped into the bottom. Nice! Thanks Paula!
