Last night, Bottles partnered with
The Watson Institute at Brown University for a special rum tasting hosted at Save The Bay along the beautiful Narragansett Bay. Brown University professor and author of “ Smuggler Nation: How Illicit Trade Made America,” led us through the history of rum smuggling and it’s pivotal role in the American Revolution. Peter Andreas
Throughout the evening we sipped 5 different rums;
Don Q Gran Anejo from Puerto Rico, Appleton Estate 12 Year from Jamaica, Clément V.S.O.P. Rhum Agricole Vieux from Martinique, and two local favorites, Thomas Tew from Newport and Bully Boy from Boston. It was a beautiful evening of history and rum…What could be better!
