Manatawny Still Works' Small Batch Rum No 3 Tiki Launch Party

Good things come in small packages, but Manatawny Still Works' Small Batch Rum—aged for a year in new American oak cooperage—exceeds the standard definition of good. 

Our Small Batch Rum is a special spirit, best enjoyed neat to experience the full range of nuanced flavors and aromas. A perfect amount of sweetness defines this molasses-based, authentic distillation of one of the world's favorite spirits. 

A tribute to one of the oldest and most important American spirits, MSW's Batch Rum is an exquisitely rare and respectable offering limited to a select number of barrels.
To kick off this amazing honor, MSW held a Small Batch Rum Tiki Party on March 26 in Pottstown.  

This Award-winning Rum is 118% proof- also called Navy- proof, crafted after Jamaican and Colonial style rums.

Rich, warm, with notes of caramelized butterscotch, molasses, apricot, almond, guava, and vanilla, this 3rd batch rum is something you want in your bar stock- so hurry only 200 bottles created!

Serve it up in a daiquiri, neat, or on the rocks!

VP of Sales and Marketing Randy McKinley gave us a great tour of the distillery and a tasting of all their spirits- 3 Bitches vodka, white whiskeys, rums, gins, and more. Fresh delicious spirits that I couldn't wait to take home to enjoy! 

The Tiki Party was great fun, with tastings, cocktail classes, steel drums, music, food by Oscar's Catering, desserts, and more drinks! 

Grapefruit Fizz
A different take on the gin fizz using grapefruit juice.

  • 2 ounces of MSW Hidden River Barrel Rested Gin
  • 1.5 Grapefruit Juice
  • 1 ounce of Egg White
  • 3 to 4 dashes of Peychaud's Bitters

Add all the ingredients in to a cocktail shaker, shake well and strain in to a coupe glass.
Garnish with the 3 to 4 dashes of bitters across the top of the cocktail. 

Baked duck appears as a good match - Sharing their fruity aromas, grapefruit and baked duck form a great flavor pairing.
