I know that Bourbon is "American", but I've been wondering about craft distilleries popping up in the U.S., specifically rum and gin. I've had Bluecoat gin out of Philly, PA and Thomas Tew rum out of Newport, RI.

Curious to see if anyone else has any favorites worth seeking out?

Anchor Steam (craft beer brewery) has a really nice gin called Junipero. Not as good as Hendricks (IMO), but very good.

The High West guys out of Utah are making some really nice whiskeys. I love their Rendezvous Rye

Try the spiced rum mixed with some sweetened iced tea.

Found a place in Indy that sells it. Fell in love with it at Shack last summer.

Had some Rogue rum that I thought was a great mixer. :)
