Brands We Love: Owney's Rum
To With a company culture so devoted to cocktails, building relationships with liquor brands has always been important to our team. One of the very first field trips we took as a company was to visit The Noble Experiment, a unique craft distillery that’s making delicious white rum just a few blocks away from our original Bushwick office.
Owney’s Rum is distilled from 100% American cane molasses, yielding a spirit with distinct aromas of pineapple and tropical citrus. Additionally, The Noble Experiment is the only completely female-operated distillery in the US, how rad is that?
Bridget Firtle founded the rum distillery in 2012. The former financial analyst was a big fan of the versatile spirit and was looking to create her own natural, non-GMO white rum. Owney’s Rum consists of three simple ingredients: New York tap water, molasses and yeast. The high-quality ingredients get mashed, fermented, distilled, blended and filtered before they are bottled. The result is truly magnificent.
