We truly appreciate all the support our fans have given us this month and so we wanted to let you know this is the last week of the BOGO sale! (buy a rum, get a vodka free) We're open Thursday through Sunday this Labor Day Weekend to finish off the sale and offer tours and tastings. Just to stave off the usual questions, the bottles of rum cost $29.99 and unfortunately a crummy antiquated state law prohibits us from shipping. So you have to come to the distillery to purchase. After extensive repairs, our chiller is back up and running and we're squirreling away more rum into barrels for aging. Thank you so much for your purchases in August and we hope you're enjoying all that rum and vodka!

Teacher and school staff BOGO for HAND SANITIZER (pick up only, cannot ship at this discount). Yes, we still have sanitizer and it smells delicious while it disinfects the rugrats. And as it's made with our rum, we can assure you it is non toxic, unlike the many toxic brands that seem to have made it into our stores. The sale will extend from now till the end of September. Unscented 1 liter (33.8oz) is $9.99 and with fragrance $11.49. Unscented 7oz misting spray bottles are $4.99 and with fragrance $5.99. These will all be buy one get one free!

I hear a lot of negative reactions about having to wear a mask. My reaction was "F%@K YAH! I get to wear a mask everyday!" I'm now fulfilling my lifelong dream of wearing a costume to work all year round.

07/15/2020

Tampa Bay Rum Company's Plague Doctor would like to discuss toxic hand sanitizer today for your knowledge and safety. There have been over 60 hand sanitizers pulled from the market due to toxicity recently, and we've had several inquiries about the safety of our product. First of all, Gasparilla Hand Sanitizer is safe for use! The dangerous products contain methanol instead of ethanol. When distilling ethanol (in our case rum), the first fluid that comes out of the still is a toxic mixture that includes methanol. In distilling lingo, we call this the "heads". Any good distiller knows you need to separate the heads from the "hearts", which is the good stuff (ethanol), and safely dispose of it. If you've ever heard stories of the old moonshiners blinding or killing people with their product, it's because they weren't properly separating the heads from the hearts and they were feeding people methanol amongst other toxic substances. My joke on tours is to let people know that we like repeat customers, so we make sure to separate the heads. I think we can all agree that there are a lot of unscrupulous people in the world, and it seems that some are taking advantage of this tragedy to sell a potentially deadly product to make a quick buck. Methanol can soak through the skin and eventually cause the same damage it would if you were drinking it. I've seen many news stories regarding this with lists of dangerous products. I encourage you to check these lists to be sure you don't have this product in your house. Cheers!

It's time to fill more barrels with rum! We've received 60 of these 15 gallon barrels this week. 48 of these barrels are the first use whiskey, second use maple syrup, in which we then age our award winning Gasparilla Reserve Rum, but these 12 beauties are brand new. We estimate about 12-24 months to perfect our rum in these small barrels.

Tampa Bay Rum Company's very own Plague Doctor advises you to be sensible, wear a mask, wash your hands regularly, keep a bottle of Gasparilla Hand Sanitizer handy, and have a nice stiff drink of Gasparilla Rum at home. Florida is currently the COVID capital of America. I'm proud of our state, but we probably shouldn't continue striving to be number one in this category. Stay safe!

"Cleanse yer filthy hands & hooks ye scallywags!" Since apparently we're stuck with COVID for awhile, I decided to have a little fun and make a cool label for our product. Tampa Bay Rum Company is still providing WHO and FDA approved UNSCENTED HAND SANITIZER for direct sale and pickup at our distillery in Ybor (we are not shipping at this time). Our 1 liter (33.8 oz) squirt bottles are $9.99 and our 200 ml (6.8 oz) misting spray bottles are $4.99. You can even pick up a 5 gallon bucket for $175. These prices are for the 80% unscented ethyl alcohol hand sanitizer blend. Swing on by Thursday-Sunday!

Although we're back to rum and tours and tastings, we realize the COVID virus spread is accelerating in our area, so we are still producing hand sanitizer for direct purchase from our distillery.

We're happy to announce that starting this week, our tasting room is open for business! New hours are Thursday and Friday 4-8pm, Saturday 12-8pm, and Sunday 12-4pm.

I'd like to thank Florida Crystal Corporation for their molasses donation to the Tampa Bay Rum Company. We've fermented and distilled this molasses into hand sanitizer. Florida Crystals generous donation of raw material for production has allowed us to give more to charities, including Friday's 20 gallon donation to Shriners Hospitals for Children. I'm so proud of our community for coming together in this time of need. I've seen much of the best of humanity during this crisis.

04/27/2020

We receive frequent requests to ship our rum, but due to an outdated Florida law, we're only allowed to sell directly to the consumer from our distillery premises. This is in direct contradiction to Governor DeSantis' Executive Order which encourages businesses to provide delivery in order to hinder the spread of the COVID 19 virus. To help the Tampa Bay Rum Company remain open during these difficult times and beyond, we'd appreciate it if you had a look at this link and if you're in agreement, send its attached letter to your local Florida state representative. Thank you! https://p2a.co/9Qp9Q8X

do you still have hand sanitizer? if yes, when can you pick it up?
Tampa's version of Havana's Floridita Margarita. 2 ounces Gasparilla's Scurvy Lime Rum. 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon sugar or simple syrup (or less, to taste) 1 teaspoon maraschino liqueur Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker (if using granulated sugar, stir to dissolve it in the lime juice before adding the other ingredients) and fill with ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a thin slice of lime.
