*Due to State laws, Rum will be available exclusively in the HDC Eugene tasting room as well as the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and other national distributors. Ask your local retailers to order HDC Rum. OLCC Item #5365B
Why is Rum only being sold in the Eugene tasting room?
HDC Rum will be available in Washington via distribution to retailers in early 2019. We are not able to sell rum in our Washington tasting rooms due to state law. We operate under a "Craft Distillery" license, meaning we are required to get over 51% of raw ingredients from Washington directly. We cannot get raw sugar cane (the ingredient used to make molasses, which is what Rum is distilled from) from Washington. The product we sell in our Washington tasting rooms must legally be produced in Washington. We understand this can be confusing and we hope that some of these laws can change in the future.
Will Rum be sold online?
No, we cannot sell Rum online because our e-commerce site operates as an extension of the Flagship Federal License (the federal license is called a DSP).
Will Rum be available in retailers?
Yes, Rum will be available to distribution nationwide. This means, retailers like local grocery stores, liquor stores and stores like Total Wine will carry Rum including liquor control states like Oregon, Idaho, Montana, etc.
Why are there 2 types of Rum being released?
Dain and the Eugene production team have narrowed down 2 types of Rum based on different molasses types and uses. We are releasing Commander's Rum which is a more premium White Rum. Elk Rider Rum will be the more traditional recipe.
Will other rums be released?
Yes, Dain and his team are working on spiced and aged versions.
