Lacassine, La — Louisiana Spirits LLC is proud to announce Bayou Rum as the brand name for their soon to be released rum made from Louisiana sugar cane.
Louisiana Spirits is also proud to announce that Republic National Distributing Company is the exclusive distribution
partner for Louisiana.
“Louisiana was known as ‘The Bayou State’ while growing up on Contraband Bayou. Good memories inspired us to celebrate our state by naming our product Bayou Rum. When we tested the name in Louisiana and around the USA it got great reviews. Consumers chose Bayou Rum because it is easy to say, easy to remember, and easy to imagine what we’re about: living life to its fullest and having some fun along the way. We’re really ex- cited about Bayou Rum and we look forward to the ‘inaugural toast’ with the citizens of Louisiana!” said Trey Litel, President of Louisiana Spirits.
The Louisiana Spirits craft distillery is perfecting the first two Bayou Rum expressions. Silver Bayou Rum is handcrafted in a traditional pot still using 100 percent natural Louisiana cane sugar & molasses. Spiced Bayou Rum is also handcrafted in a traditional pot still for full flavor and then blended with delicious natural Louisiana ingredients.
Both varieties are expected to be available at the distillery and throughout the state by early June.
