John Emerald Distilling Company
John Emerald Distilling Company has been making rum in Opelika, Alabama since 2014. These are the rums they’re currently producing:
Spurgeon’s Barrel Aged Rum, a hybrid pot/column-distilled, Alabama cane syrup- and Mauritian muscovado sugar-based rum that’s aged for two years in charred American white oak barrels that previously held John Emerald’s Single Malt Whiskey. Bottled at 86 proof.
Gene’s Spiced Rum, a version of the same base used in their Spurgeon’s Rum that’s infused with natural spices and local pecans. Bottled unaged at 80 proof.
