This Saturday at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center in Quackenbush Square, The Albany Distilling Company will be launching their rum, called Quackenbush Still House Original Albany Rum. This is their first non-whiskey product to date, and the beginning of their offering of spirits not entirely made of New York State ingredients. The product launch is tied in with an exhibit opening at the Albany Visitors Center with artifacts from the original Quackenbush Still House. Because of some boring legal stuff they unfortunately can’t sell or have tastings of the rum at the distillery, but many local bars and liquor stores will be stocked on March 23rd.
Also, rum just further reminds me that I can’t wait for Spring. I will be drinking this rum and singing this song for a week straight once this weather gets itself sorted.
