Through the bayous and into the sugar cane fields, we've obtained the highest quality and freshest Louisiana ingredients and state of the art distilling equipment to create a handcrafted spirit like no other.
Bayou Rum is handmade in the largest privately-owned rum distillery in the USA, utilizing traditional methods with state-of-the-art technology for all four steps: fermentation, distillation, maturation, and bottling. The beautiful facility in Lacassine, Louisiana offers distillery tours, rum tasting bar and an incomparable gift shop shop experience for those who visit the home of Bayou Rum.
After bottling the newly blended rum, you can see we do everything on site, and we think you will agree that we have successfully captured the “Louisiana Spirit”… in a Bayou Rum bottle!
“Welcome to Louisiana Spirits, home of Bayou Rum!”
You have entered the Gift Shop foyer. To the right, you will find clean restrooms , and to the left, you will see the opening of the Viewing Room. At the back of the main room, you will see the Tasting Bar area behind a short wrought iron fence.
The Visitor Center is here for you to experience the true “Spirit of Louisiana”, some of our hospitality and Bayou Rum.
Our fine rums are handcrafted on-site the Louisiana way; in a traditional copper pot still using 100% natural unrefined Louisiana cane sugar and molasses, following our authentic “sugar house” recipe.
From the culture to the cuisine, to the way people celebrate—it’s about living life to its fullest and having some fun along the way.
It’s from this place, where the sugarcane first came to the USA, where a new spirit is born…
Rum making in Louisiana paralleled the advent of sugar making in Louisiana beginning in our early colonial history. Then the art slowly disappeared soon after the Civil War took a toll on our sugar plantation culture.
