Just a few miles down Interstate 10, you can visit the Louisiana Spirits distillery where the famous Bayou Rum is made.
When you walk into the entrance, you’re welcomed by all sorts of Louisiana culture, something that is very important to Presidents of Louisiana Spirits, Trey Litel.
“It’s a celebration of what really made Louisiana a famous place, which was sugar,” Litel explains, “Sugar was founded here in the 1700’s when the colonists were trying to figure out how to make a living. And so it’s just really important to our culture.”
After a short presentation on the history of both Louisiana and Louisiana Spirits, you’re treated to a tour of the distillery. Here, you learn just what it takes to make a bottle of rum.
