Happy Birthday Hubbard

Submitted by on February 4, 2010 – 1:56 am5 Comments

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.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
