THE BEST CRAFT RUMS ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN DISTILLING INSTITUTE

Forbes magazine recently wrote an excellent article titled “The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute.” In this article, The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute, our own NJoy Spirits Distillery’s own Mermaid Rum, a multi-year Gold Medal Winner, was featured in the 9th, 10th, and 11th paragraphs of the article:

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “The third Best in Class winner was NJoy Spirits Distillery, Florida Mermaid Rum, 50% ABV, 750 ml, $40. This is a Florida sugar cane juice-based rum that has been blended with Caribbean pot still rums. The blended rum is then aged for 90 days in casks that previously held the distillery’s award-winning Wild Buck Whiskey.”

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “On the nose, there is an intense note of overripe/cooked banana followed by floral aromas and creamy butter. As the rum opens up, additional tropical fruit notes emerge, (along with) almond, vanilla, and caramel accompanied by some seasoned oak notes. Aromatically, this rum shows a powerful Jamaican-style influence.”

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “On the palate, there are more fruit notes, along with cinnamon and a bit of clove and some browned butter. The finish is long, with notes of creamy browned butter and tropical spices.”

Here are a few more key excerpts we feel you may find interesting:

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “Each spring, the American Distilling Institute’s (ADI) conducts a Judging of Craft Spirits. The competition recognizes the top craft spirits in the US and around the world.”

“Since 2007, the competition has brought together approximately 50 spirit judges to evaluate submissions from small and medium-sized producers. Both members of ADI and non-members can submit entries.”

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute “In addition to the usual listing of Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Double Gold, the ADI’s craft spirit judging also recognizes the Best of Category and Best of Class. These are the top entrants among the Gold Medal winners.”

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “Rum was the world’s first truly global spirits. Today rum is produced all over the world and has proven popular among craft spirit producers. (There were) Three rums that were chosen as Best of Class winners.”

The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute said “Craft rums are the cutting edge of contemporary rum innovation. These rums are very reasonably priced but can be hard to find. Many are only available on a regional basis or directly from the distillery. If you are a fan of rum and want to explore new and interesting rum expressions, these rums are well worth seeking out. Remember, half the fun is in the search; the other half is in drinking them.”

This Forbes magazine The Best Craft Rums According To The American Distilling Institute article was written by world-renowned spirits contributor Joseph V Micallef. In his About Page, “I have been writing and speaking about wines and spirits for 20 years. Along the way, I became a winemaker, Oregon Pinot Noir; a judge for various international competitions, among them the Irish Whisky Awards and the International Wine and Spirits Competition; wrote a book on Scotch Whisky: Its History, Production and Appreciation and working on one on Tequila. I also earned the Diploma in Wines and Spirits from the WSET.”

“(I) Have tasted a lot of wines and spirits, from 200-year-old ports to centuries-old Cognacs to many of the world’s oldest whiskies. I also write about the dusty, forgotten places of the world, the ones that reek of history and whose stories still resonate in the 21st century. The rest of the time, I cover international politics. An eclectic combination to be sure, then again, the state of the world would drive anyone to drink.”

NJoy Spirits Distillery was founded in 2012 by Natalie and Kevin Goff. They bought 80 acres inside the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area on which they formed Goff Ranch, home of NJoy Spirits Distillery.

NJoy Spirit’s Distillery is a family-operated Florida Rye Whiskey distiller in the heart of the nature coast. We wanted to make America’s finest 100% Rye Whiskey when we started making our Wild Buck American Rye Whiskey! We are confident we have achieved that (and Wild Buck Whiskey has many awards to prove it!) and have no doubt you’ll agree with just one sip!

Wild Buck Rye Whiskey is smooth, bold, handmade, and bottled at 100 proof. We start by fermenting a mash of 100% farm-fresh rye grain. We grind and cook it daily, one batch at a time. We add no artificial flavorings or color and use only purified ultraviolet filtered rainwater. At NJoy Spirits, we never rush our Rye Whiskey into a bottle. Our Rye Whiskey is aged in custom-made new charred American Oak barrels and developed in the Florida climate. The American Oak barrels give our final product a deep rich flavor with a hint of spice that only grows with time using a smaller barrel – the way Whiskey used to be aged.

Kevin Goff and Natalie Goff started making Wild Buck Rye Whiskey in 2010, and it became available to RNDC in April 2012.

We decided to start distilling Mermaid Rum in 2016 since we added to our property to grow sugarcane. Cane is like grass/bamboo, which grows in most soils. We quickly began racking up many Gold Medal Awards from prestigious groups.

We started the Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine in 2017. As you know, Moonshine is the same thing as Whiskey – just never aged in oak barrels and higher proof, and people asked for it, so that is why we decided to bottle that product.

We wanted to make products that used crops we could grow here on our farm. The type of corn we tried to make Bourbon with wasn’t growable in Florida, so we chose the 401 black rye, which quickly grows here instead. Our soil is very sandy and not rich. We have had to supplement the Florida soil with many tons of compost for years.

We are very proud that our Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, Mermaid Rum, and Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine have become a reality through many years of trial and error! We realize patrons are the key to our success. If the liquor store you frequently visit does not carry them, kindly ask them to call our distributor (See Shop > Where to Buy).

“Tour & Tastings” of all three of our Florida-grown and made “Wild Buck Whiskey,” “Mermaid Rum,” and “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine” is $8/Adult, but the fee is 100% credited towards our Whiskey, our Rum, or our Moonshine bottle purchase.

Walk around and see where we grow our 100% Rye for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Wild Buck Rye Whiskey, 150-Proof “Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine,” and the Sugar Cane for our Award-Winning 100-Proof Mermaid Rum.
