    How can a Barbados Rum be on this list of American Craft Rums? Yes, the company is American owned, but it neither craft distilled nor American rum. This is important!

    Not sure how you determined your Top 10 criteria, but BAYOU RUM from Lacassine, Louisiana USA is sorely missing from your list. Bayou Rum has 4 delicious expressions and is crafted in a pot still from Louisiana sugarcane at the largest craft distillery devoted to rum in the USA. Bayou Rum has been recognized internationally with 64 tasting competition medals including ADI in 2013. The latest DOUBLE GOLD and GOLD medals were Madrid 2015 International Rum Conference held last month. Bayou Rum has sold more rum than any of the rums on your list since its launch July 2013 and is now available in 7 states. Top 10 American Craft Rum – Bayou Rum tops the list on all criteria! Send me a note and I am happy to provide photography of Bayou Rum…America’s Rum!
