Hg2 : The Hedonist

Celebration Distillation

The oldest rum distiller in the United States has been handcrafting single-barrel rum for well over 15 years. The craft distilling movement has just begun, but Celebration Distillation and its prize-winning Old New Orleans Rums are leading the U.S. rum renaissance. The distillers happily let visitors see, and taste, every step of the process, from the almost beer-like fermented molasses in the first stage to the smooth liquor aged three years in Bourbon barrels that emerges at the end. The distillery itself is a rag-tag operation cobbled together with old stainless-steel milk tanks and refashioned beer-brewing equipment. Celebration has installed a comfortable tasting room, however, where you can linger over a glass after the tour. Ask to sample the limited-edition 10-year-old blend made with rum that sat safely about the water when Katrina flooded the distillery.
