ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (September 22, 2015) – St. Augustine Distillery is proud to announce that Discovery Series Rum #2, the second of the Discovery Series, will be available to the public on Saturday, October 3rd in the Distillery’s gift shop, located on Riberia Street in downtown St. Augustine.
The Discovery Series is a four-part collection of limited release expressions, created during the development of the Distillery’s flagship rum. Each one has been fermented and distilled on-site from select regional sugarcane syrups and molasses in copper pot stills, and then aged in the Distillery’s house-style bourbon barrels for a distinct flavor profile.
“Our first Discovery Series rum sold out in six days,” explained Philip McDaniel, co-founder and CEO of St. Augustine Distillery in St. Augustine, Fla. “We couldn’t be more thrilled by the response from our loyal supporters and the local community.”
Discovery Series Rum #3 will be available in November with Series #4 following in December. The Distillery’s flagship rum (or final recipe) is slated for a January 2016 release.
“We wanted to allow our customers the chance to collect and experience each of these different recipes in real-time, as we refine our flagship rum,” said McDaniel. “This opportunity is extremely rare and only available at an artisanal, small-batch distillery like ours.”
