I made the mistake of thinking I could drop in for a quick sample of their dark rum and buy a bottle. They do not give free samples. They do not allow you to pay for the rum sample of your choice. What they do...More

The Rum is delicious, the dark rum is my favorite. The cocktails are awesome. Every time we visit there is a new cocktail offered. Our favorite is the Painkiller.

Thanks for coming by! I'm really glad your enjoyed the cocktail. Keep an eye out for some of our new rums coming out in the next couple months.

Cocktails are good, but drinking it straight will cause a funny face. I would recommend this in the Summer when it's hot. Not a must visit every time you go to the hill country.

Sorry you didn't enjoy the rum straight. Drinking straight liquor can be a different experience for everyone. I'm glad you enjoyed the cocktails and look forward to you coming around in the summer.

The rum is excellent and unique. They offer tastings, cocktails featuring their rums, and bites such as cookies with their dum.

This little place surprises you with its great rum and cocktails. You cannot purchase a bottle on Sundays, but you can still taste their various rums and have a cocktail. Worth a stop!
