Before there was bourbon here in the U.S., there was rum. The longtime reigning spirit for mixing cocktails, rum continues to tempt our taste buds and warm our hearts. Along comes SWEET CRUDE, made with heart in Lafayette, LA, where we can see and touch the sugar cane used to make our unique mash bills.

Winner of the Washington Cup Spirits competition, SWEET CRUDE rum is truly sweet, smooth, and perfect for mixing. SWEET CRUDE is the official French style rum of the Louisiana cocktail dubbed The Rouler.

Here at Wildcat Brothers Distillery, we take pride in the fact that no molasses is used during this fermentation, resulting in white rum with a clean, refreshingly light flavor that’s easy to sip.

About Wildcat Brothers Distilling

 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.
