Spirit Review – Lassiter’s N. Carolina Rum

In January I got to be a distiller for a day at Lassiter Distilling Company, so it’s only fitting I review their first product which is white rum. For a first product it’s quite remarkable and you can also check out my visit to their distillery. And, if you are interested in the man behind the…
