Florida’s Top Award winning Craft Rum Producer, Wicked Dolphin, has just partnered with one of Florida’s Award winning Brewer, Due South Brewing Co., in Boynton Beach, Florida to create an awesome addition to their rum, Wicked Dolphin Brewer’s Series – Due South Brewing.
Wicked Dolphin Brewers Series combines Florida’s Craft Rum with some of Florida’s top craft breweries. The second in the series partners Wicked Dolphin Rum with Due South Brewery out of Boynton Beach.
Oak barrels that once held premium American Bourbon, before aging Wicked Dolphin Rum for two years, were filled by Due South Brewery with their Mariana Trench Imperial Stout a tropical style stout. Brewed with chocolate malts and roasted barley. The barrels were then given back to Wicked Dolphin to be filled once more with their award winning rum, this time absorbing the stout notes remaining in the oak of the barrel.
Wicked Dolphin’s Brewer’s Rum series with Due South has produced wonderful aged rum with a soft nose, warm notes from premium Florida sugarcane maturing in American Oak barrels with tastes of vanilla, and coco with a light finish.
Life of a Wicked Dolphin Brewers Barrel: 3 years Bourbon, 2 years Wicked Dolphin Rum, 1 year 2 months in Mariana Trench Imperial Stout barrels, then Back to Wicked Dolphin Distillery to be filled with rum and set to age another year.
“At Wicked Dolphin, we love experimenting. A lot of the team was brewing beer well before distilling rum, so the Brewer’s Series is a natural fit for us. We have some great breweries working with us throughout Florida, and we’re going to have some fantastic rum. What better way to partner with a great Brewery like Due South Brewing.”, stated Wicked Dolphin Rum owner, JoAnn Elardo.
