Jersey Artisan Busted Barrel Dark Rum Debuts in the Garden State

October 10, 2013 – Hunterdon Distributors will begin delivering the first official cases of Jersey Artisan’s Busted Barrel Dark Rum to restaurants and retail stores throughout New Jersey on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. After the successful launch of the Busted Barrel Silver Rum this past August, Hunterdon is anticipating this release to be very well-received by both retailers and consumers alike.

Aged in new charred white oak barrels with fresh vanilla beans for a minimum of four months, Busted Barrel Dark Rum showcases rich flavors and aromas of salted caramel, maple and toffee and leaves a long, complex finish of oak and vanilla on the palate. This locally-distilled product has not even hit store shelves yet, but has already garnered a silver medal from the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition this past summer, and a 4-star rating from the prestigious Diffords Guide. Jersey Artisan founders Brant Braue and Krista Haley are extremely proud of this recent press and look forward to sharing their enthusiasm, and a few glasses of rum, with consumers in the months ahead.

To celebrate the launch, Hunterdon will be hosting a series of events with Brant and Krista at restaurants and stores around the state. Please stay tuned with our website events page and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and information.
