Rum Gumption: Rums Produced in the Bay Area

While craft booze drinkers are becoming more aware of the many spirits being distilled in the Bay Area, few realize how many distilleries are turning out some decent rums as well. Here are the standouts we tasted. While we only feature six bottles in this issue, we had over a dozen different varieties and brands to choose from: all made locally and all really good. Also, a big thank you to all who supplied us with the samples. All illustrations by Damon Guthrie, exclusive for ABV magazine. Click image for review (hover over image to read review).
