We make small batch, high quality Rums. Many people don't realize there are sipping rums that rival the best bourbons, or that you can make a sophisticated cocktail with a high quality rum. That's where Puget Sound Rum Company comes in. We will make you re-think rum.
We are the first rum distillery in Woodinville, WA, 30 degrees north of where most conventional rums are made. We use a traditionally styled Jamaican pot still, and use traditional Jamaican rum making methodes, but add our own twist. By combining raw materials and techniques from the tropics with the climate and water of the Pacific Northwest, we create unique and flavorful rums.
The Puget Sound Rum Company brand represents the rum products produced by the Four Leaf Spirits Distillery and Tasting Room. As a part of the Four Leaf family, we donate a portion of the proceeds from every bottle sold to various canacer research or educational non-profts. You Drink. We Give. To learn more about this giving, please visit www.fourleafsprits.com/you-drink-we-give.

Rum is distilled from the fermentation of sugar cane or sugar cane byproducts - essentially, sugar cane juice or molasses. Unlike scotches, tequilas, whiskeys or bourbons, there aren't many other rules - which is part of what makes rum so much more interesting. It can be aged in new casks, used bourbon or wine casks, or left completely unaged. Each raw material, each aging strategy and each blend can give such a wide variety of characteristics. Rum can be highly distilled, and have very little flavor or character, or can be minimally distilled, giving a full bodied rum. One common misconception about rum is that it is all sweet. However, that is not always the case. Much like wines, there are sweeter rums and drier rums. During the fermentation and distillation process, all of the sugar is removed from the final product - only the flavor of the raw material is left behind. Some rums do add sugar or caramel after distillation for color and taste consistency - those rums, not surprisingly, tend to be the sweeter rums.
