Who says you need a Caribbean island to make America’s best rum? Come meet the Bayou Rum team and learn about how this unique American spirit came to be. Handcrafted right here in Louisiana from raw unrefined Louisiana sugar and fresh Louisiana molasses, Bayou Rum has been turning heads since TOTC 2013 and winning awards at 64 tasting competitions. While in town, you gotta taste it...

The latest expression, Bayou Select Rum is the finest expression so far of the unique Louisiana sugarcane rum born from the rich soils of the mighty Mississippi river delta. Fermented with cane yeast, distilled in American copper pot stills, and rested in American oak in the Louisiana heat, this classic dark rum is sure to excite your palate with its complex aroma, delicious flavors, and sensuous finish. Bayou Satsuma Rum Liqueur is a deliciously smooth top shelf orange liqueur great as a cocktail modifier and stands alone nicely.

Bayou Spiced Rum is loved by many as a Best-In-Class 80 proof classic with a Louisiana flair! And the one that started it all, Double Gold winning Bayou Silver Rum, the original pot distilled classic white rum is a versatile mixer but you will want to drink it on ice. You will also want to touch, smell, and see what we consider to be the finest raw materials available from M.A. Patout & Sons - the oldest continuously operating sugar mill in the USA since 1829.
