Happy Birthday Hubbard
Today is Hubbard’s birthday so I picked up a gift for him at my local wine and spirits store. I say you can never go wrong buying someone a bottle of booze for most any occasion. This one seemed fitting.
About the Rum
Railean Rum is a brand made by the family owned and operated Eagle Point Run Distillery located on the shores of Galveston Bay in San Leon, Texas. That’s right, a rum made right here in Texas. The monk parakeet is their official mascot. About the bottle I picked out:
RAILEAN Rum is 100% Handmade in Texas. We begin by fermenting pure Grade-A, unsulfured, cane molasses with yeast manufactured specifically for small batch rum production. The Master Distiller then utilizes our state-of-the-art Bavarian Holstein copper pot still to perform multiple distillations in order to craft an ultra-pure cane spirit. The final product aged, gently filtered and polished to produce a smooth, dry (not sweet), yet flavorful rum
I have been reading about them in various local and state magazines and advertisements for some time now, and knowing Hubbard’s affection for all things Texas, I thought it would make a perfect birthday gift.
It’s a little cool this time of year for drinking Mojitos, but rest assured as soon as it warms up we’ll be publishing our favorite recipe.
