National Rum day is August 16th. Come on in to Louie’s to enjoy  your favorite Rum drink. Our drink special for the week is “Dark & Stormy”, made with dark rum and ginger beer.

FACTS; Rum is commonly made from sugar cane. Rum has been used as a gift from one royal to another, Rum has been referred to as “wine of sugar”.  According to https://nationaltoday.com/national-rum-day/  Mount Gay, which is today the oldest-existing rum company in the world, is established in Barbados. The first North American distillery is established in present-day Staten Island. Caribbean sugarcane plantation slaves discover that molasses, a byproduct of sugar refining, can be fermented into alcohol. Just some fun facts about rum we wanted to share.

Put down the wine glass and try a glass of rum on August 16th

Cheers!!
