Onward and Upward with Due North Rum
We Brooklynites love our organics – there probably isn’t any resident who doesn’t have at least ONE friend who is a member of their local food co-op! So when we found out about Due North rum, we couldn’t wait to feature it on Brooklyn Cooking Happy Hour!
Made by Van Brunt Stillhouse in Red Hook, Due North is made from organic, unprocessed sugar grown and dried by small family farmers. (Did we also mention how much Brooklyn residents love anything small batch?) The result is some seriously tasty rum that is perfect alone or in a classic cocktail like the Dark & Stormy, which we’re featuring as this week’s Brooklyn Cooking Happy Hour cocktail of choice!
If you’re not much of a rum drinker, Van Brunt also offers whiskey, grappa and moonshine. Pick up a bottle, hit up our Happy Hour YouTube page, and start mixing!
