The expansion ncludes a barrel library, an event space and an outdoor entertainment venue to its visitor center.
The barrel library will be able to house thousands of batches of new creations from master blender Reiniel Vicente Diaz and master distiller Jeff Murphy.
It will also feature a part-tasting area, where visitors will be able to sample Bayou rums and learn more from the team behind the range.
The event space can hold up to 300 people and comes complete with a stage and dance floor.
“In 2016, the Bayou Rum distillery hosted more than 35,000 guests. This expansion will allow us to better cater to new and returning visitors and offers an indoor and outdoor area for events that locals can enjoy,” said Joe Reese, Bayou Rum’s managing director, who has been leading the undertaking.
