Fifolet - Spiced Flavored French Style Rum

$48.99

Before there was bourbon here in the U.S., there was rum. If spiced rum is your palate pleaser, then follow the light, la Fifolet...

Here at Wildcat Brothers Distillery in Lafayette, LA, we've got sugar cane growing in our backyards. We've also got swamps, and if late at night you see a flickering light floating dangerously close (gasp), the Cajun swamp boogie man, Fifolet, is coming to get you!

Fifolet is legendary and nostalgic, a taste of days gone by. Some have said it smells like grandmother's kitchen during the fall. Boasting flavors of the old French South, this lively rum is full of character. Coffee, vanilla beans, and cinnamon (to name a few) make it easy to sip and stir. We recommend enjoying Fifolet with family, friends, and some good ol’ Cajun ghost stories. Just don’t follow the light… or should you?


Tasting notes

Tingling warm spice mélange with a delicate smattering of bitterness and spice. Slightly roasted cocoa, notes of sweet charred sugar. Underlying hints of tantalizing almonds and notes of fruit tree florals.

About Wildcat Brothers Distilling

The Wildcat Brothers adhere to a meticulous, small-batch method to produce a rum like no other. In one sense, we might be the most unlikely distillers you’ll ever meet because we are completely self-taught. As a lawyer and Ph.D., we asked ourselves, “What’s the difference between that $7.00 bottle of liquor and that $70.00 bottle of liquor?" Our curiosity led to research. Research evolved into practice. Practice flowered into passion. Passion grew into awards. Awards grew into fans. Before he knew it, our Chief Distiller, David Meaux, had taught himself how to distill a rum that continues to draw patrons from as far away as France to friends right down the road. 

 The resulting unique French style rum is the foundation of all Wildcat Brothers Distilling’s Heritage Rum Line. With this anchoring line of spirits, we continue to expand the distillery’s capabilities, experimental ingredients and techniques, and spirits offerings. Expect our ancestors to speak through our spirits as we grow to redefine southern Louisiana as “New Acadiana,” merging old-world recipes with modern techniques.

The Distillery

Here at Wildcat Brothers Distilling, we don’t claim to have reinvented the wheel. We’re just trying to conserve our ancestors’ memories by honoring their traditions; with natural ingredients, local resources, and insanely delicious rum. We are the first distillery in Acadiana, running our still for our first production of spirits in 2011. Our rums are produced by hand in small batches with no importation of foreign molasses or sugarcane byproducts. Just the way it should be. And people have taken notice as our Sweet Crude rum won the distinguished Washington Cup Award within just a few years of our production.
