How Whistler African Style Rum Started...

“Let’s start a band, no really, we should start a band!”…“I bet I can jump across that…”…“This isn’t rum! I bet we could make better rum than this! Seriously, how hard could it be?”…This was the red “cool-drink”, flavoured methanol (the stuff that makes you blind) induced conversation we, the brothers, had that started a journey that took us to the Moonshine University (Really! Our certificates are up in the distillery) and on a search to find the best rum distilleries in the world. Today, Lon is our Master Distiller and Trev makes things look pretty. We took the leap to create a rum that is authentically African, made by Africans, for Africans.
