This is a blog that will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. We will travel to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring you the Rumstyles of all those we come in contact with.
Prichard's Distillery, the first craft
distiller founded in Tennessee in the past 50 years, celebrated the grand
opening of their second distillery on Wednesday, June 18 at the Fontanel
Mansion in Nashville. Prichard's hosted visitors at a log cabin converted to a
tasting room and shop on the grounds of the Mansion at Fontanel, the former
home of country music legend Barbara Mandrell.The Estate is now a museum, hospitality and
entertainment destination that welcomes over 500,000 visitors a year.The
new Prichard's production facility is adjacent to the log cabin tasting center
and includes a 400-gallon Alembic copper still custom-designed by Vendome
Copper and Brassworks in the style of French cognac.It is the first still of its kind in Tennessee.
The Pricard Family is known for their fine bourbons
and rums.The new facility will give
many new visitors the opportunity to enjoy their fine spirits.This family’s heritage in the spirits
business goes back many generations and I’m glad to see the growth into their
new facility at the Fontanel Mansion.The new still and plant will give them capabilities far beyond what they
were able to do at the “old school house” in Kelso, Tennessee.
Best wishes and congratulations to the
entire Prichard family for their latest endeavor, looking forward to getting up
your way to visit the new distillery.;o)
