Our next batch of Gasparilla Reserve is going to be available again either January or February (we're still waiting on it to age perfectly, but it's close!). But today we did some experimenting at Rock Brothers Brewing - Ybor with a bit of the first batch I had on hand. This is Scooby, making the best Smoked Old Fashioned I've ever had, using our Gasparilla Reserve. Of course, I may be a little biased, so you should stop by Rock Brothers when we have it available to see for yourself! We'll be announcing online when it's ready to bottle. Thank you for your patience!

Happy Halloween! Today we have a Pirate Apple Mule for your pleasure. Add a healthy portion of Gasparilla Apple Spiced Rum, a dash of apple cider, a good ginger beer, and garnish with an apple that's been prepared with your cutlass. If copper mugs be in short supply, thar be no shame in using a rum snifter.

HELP US CATCH THIS THIEF IN YBOR! The spare tire was stolen from our trailer by this paunchy, balding, middle aged, white male on 10/16/20. He is very likely a local to Ybor, because he actually drove away after initially having difficulty removing the tire, to retrieve a better tool and returned less than 9 minutes later. His truck appears to be a 2 door 1997-2003 (early 2000's) model Ford F150. The truck is dark with dark rims. The right side window is covered with a white plastic with the letters HEM visible. The rear window has an Oakley sticker. There is also a rack on top of the cab. If you recognize this truck, please send us the license plate number. Unfortunately, my rum distillery has suffered from theft and vandalism many times from doing business in Ybor over the years. The Tampa Bay Rum Company is a locally owned small business, struggling to survive, improve, and give back to the community. I'm the sole owner of this business and I use this trailer to haul blackstrap molasses up from south Florida to make our rum. Had we not noticed the missing spare tire, this could have put me in a very dangerous position, should I have had a blow out. Please help us continue to improve Ybor and clean up the community. Thank you for all your support!

Working on some rum recipes at home (rough life) and just struck gold. 1 shot Gasparilla Apple Spiced Rum, 1 shot RumChata, with Apple Cider on ice. The RumChata coagulates when you drop it in the cider, so you have to shake the sh*t out of it to mix it in. Pure apple heaven when you're done though! Enjoy!

On my biweekly molasses haul from South Florida, my rum wanted to get out of the truck for a minute to say hi to all of his sugar cane cousins. All the Florida sugar canes were asking when we were going to transform them into delicious Gasparilla Rum as well 😄 Jeez my imagination runs wild on these seven hour drives 🤦

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!

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!

MAN DOWN!
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.
Thank you Tampa Bay Rum! I was finally able to buy hand sanitizer! You are awesome. And I will be by to participate in a rum tasting, when this is all over.
