Old School Rum in New Orleans

Large arrow left

Located in a warehouse in New Orleans' Ninth Ward, the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery was the brainchild of a local artist in 1999. The distillery survived the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and is still going strong and are now being distributed by Budweiser. You can tour the distillery for $10, which includes one of their rum drinks upon arrival and samples of each of their signature rums. The tour is informative and impressive, considering all of their rum is made by 8 full time employees. Be sure to pick up a bottle while you're there, as well as a card detailing recipes for each type of rum.
