The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Nov 2, 2017


It's an intriguing, tropical spirit with a dark and sordid history, and we had the happy privilege of digging into all the weird and wonderful details with my friends Ben Lyon and Jaime Windon of the Lyon Distilling Company, makers of all things yummy and rummy.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The differences between all those rum varieties you never knew existed
  • How distillers make rum that tastes grassy, funky, and every flavor in between
  • The surprising history of rum in the United States and abroad
  • Classic Rum cocktails and spinoffs you should try at home
  • Why Bananas belong in dunder pits
  • And much, much more.
