Montanya Platino Rum

  • Mar 13, 2010

American rum is a tradition that goes back to the early colonial days when the tricorn hat was still en vogue.  While the cyclical nature of fashion has not yet brought back the tricorn (for reasons that still escape me), American rum has been making quite the comeback.

Granted, if you were to consider where American rum would be made a few places might cross your mind.  New England has historically be the center of American rums (think Medford Rum).  New Orleans and Hawaii sort of jump out at you too.  Colorado, on the other hand, probably doesn’t crack the Top Ten list for “Where do I think American rum comes from?”

Montanya Rum is made in Silverton, Colorado.  Yes, rum in the Rocky Mountains.

i really enjoy this rum, a little on the 'simple' side but a tasty mixer (depending on the price).

Hi all, A month or so ago we went to a Rum distillery while on vacation and while this may bring up thoughts of warm weather and tropical breezes, it was actually high up in the mountains in Colorado in the town of Silverton.  Yep, I know that sounds a bit odd that Colorado would have a rum distillery but it does and Montanya Rum is a great one at that (http://www.montanyadistillers.com).    We arrive up in the town of Silverton early on a cool October day looking for the Montanya …

A touch of honey makes this rum a delightful offering from an American distiller of note. Keep your eye on this one.
