We had never heard of this place but after seeing it on a HGTV episode we decided to visit this place. We were so surprised to find about 50 people there to hear speakers talk about their "rum" including the owner. First when you get there you are welcomed into the tasting room. Not just one taste but as many... More

Drum Circle Distilling knows how to put out the welcome mat! The tasting room is immediately adjacent to the distilling equipment, which is mostly beautiful, shiny copper. Dave handled the first segment of the tour, to cover the history of this rum and all the awards it has won. Troy, the owner, then stepped in to explain the distilling and... More

The distillery tour is free (register ahead: Drum Circle Distillery) and only operates on certain days of the week at specific times. On our tour, we had approximately 50 people. The speakers, including one of the founders/owners, provided a lot of interesting information about the making of the Siesta Key Rum. Their voices were loud (no amplification), some seating is...

We found out on Trip Advisor that this was a free Rum Tasting Room. Wow, the staff was very friendly and the samples were paired with Pineapple Juice and/or Vernors Ginger Ale or you could drink them straight. Very nice flavors - we opted for the Spicy Rum and the Coconut Rum, but the regular rum was good too! We... More

This is a new distillery that is new (10 years old) but is also the oldest rum distillery in Florida. They have won multiple awards in rum creation. Very much enjoyed the... More

He told us all about how the rum is made and bottled. He was very interesting and encouraged questions from the audience. They gave free shots for tasting which could be... More
