Distillation: The rum is blended and then various spices, caramel, cayenne pepper, and vanilla are added to the blend to flavor the spirit. The cayenne pepper and vanilla are added late in the infusion process to prevent the spice from becoming overwhelming.

Tasting Notes: Golden amber color. Bright spicy carrot cake aromas and flavors with a nice dash of dried cayenne pepperiness on the finish. The spiciness is not overpowering at all, just enough heat to give the rum some kick. Clean, flavorful and very clever in flavor and conception. Will make outstanding cocktails. This rum is truly unique with a true New Orleans flavor.

About the Label: Every bottle of Old New Orleans Rum has an image inside its back label. The founder of Celebration Distillation is artist James Michalopoulos, and it is his wildly colorful and expressive architectural paintings of New Orleans which are featured. You might have to drink some rum before you can see the images, but getting there is half the fun!

    Like it hot? Made with three-year-old amber rum, this 'Cajun' rum is by far the spiciest in the category. Despite the mild aroma and initial flavor, the spice really explodes on the finish, with clove, ginger and cayenne-pepper fireworks
