Taildragger™Torched Coconut Flavored Rum is the newest Taildragger in rum fleet at Tailwinds Distilling.We only use coconuts that have fallen into the ocean in Hawaii and traveled around the globe by way of the Circumpolar Current. We then painstakingly toast them using the blast from a real cf34 jet aircraft engine and let it rest with our Taildragger White Rum. JK! Or are we? We add just a touch of sweetness to offset the bitterness of the natural coconut. Make no mistake, at 60 proof this coconut rum can still proudly be called a rum.The result is a beautifully balanced tropical spirit with a creamy rich finish.
Tailwinds™ Distilling Company was founded by husband and wife entrepreneurs Toby and Jillian Beall after years of planning. The Bealls shared the vision of creating something original & going against the "grain" in the American craft spirits industry. They are focused on returning America's first distilled spirit to the states with a truly American rum & forging the way with one of the first 100% Blue Agave Spirits distilled here in the United States.
Toby spent years traveling as a commercial pilot and adventure seeker through the Caribbean Islands, South America and Mexico. Together, the couple tapped their experiences of tasting the local flavors from each of these regions to bring home & create their American made spirits. With a rich history of aviation in the Beall family, Tailwinds branding captures the American spirit & ingenuity that led man to reach for the sky yearning to go higher & faster.
