Rum Distillery Guide for Southwest Florida

Florida might be known for its craft beer breweries, but it also has its share of craft rum distilleries too. Really good ones.

Why? Like Caribbean rum, the sub-tropical temperature is ideal and Florida has plenty of locally grown sugar and molasses too.

Best of all, you can try FREE samples for tasting, get a tour of the facilities and learn about the process of how the drink is made from aging to bottling. You can also purchase your favorite bottle after without the liquor store markup. It's a great place to take visiting friends and family or to spend a Saturday afternoon.

We did a tour of all three distilleries for my 35th birthday (make sure you have a designated driver). Cheers!

Below is your guide to the distilleries of Southwest Florida:

Alligator Bay Rum, Punta Gorda, Florida

Tip: This brother-run distillery is near the Punta Gorda airport off of 75. It's charming and chill. I love sipping their award-winning Dark Rum and their Gold Rum the best.

Rum, Vodka, Whiskey, Gin, Liqueurs and Herbal

Tip: Their setup is the real deal and I love their logo & branding. My favorites are their cream liquors and key lime vodka. Their is a charge however for their tours & tastings and reservations are required, but they often run Groupon specials.

Wicked Dolphin Distillery, Cape Coral, Florida

Tip: Loved their Coconut Rum and don't worry it's not like the cheaper Malibu you might have tried in college.
