RumJourney was created in 2010 but the exploration began long before that. When we started this endeavor the range and diversity of rums in Georgia was very limited. This motivated us to explore the world taking us around the Caribbean and Americas finding new spirits. I fell hard for the history, the diversirty of the spirit, and how each island brings it's own identity to the rum world. What I have also enjoyed is all the lasting friendships that have been made over the years.
I have always believed that Rum and travel that goes along with it is at its best when it is a shared experience and have been lucky to build good friendships with a group of writers that are all experts in their own rights. Josh Miller at Inuakena.com, Lance Surubally at Lonecaner.com, and Matt Pietrek at Cocktailwonk.com have their own unique angles and contributions to the rum world. If you are not already reading these gentlemens works, please take some time to check them out.
The Journey section of this website will chronicle my thoughts, shared projects, and explorations as we continue our RumJourney.
