Taildragger™ Amber Rum is barreled immediately after distillation. We rest our rum in American Oak barrels once used for rye whiskey from the heartland of Kentucky. The aging process, which takes at least two years, gives our rum its natural amber hue, a hint of vanilla and the complexity of the toasted oak with slight rye whiskey tones.
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.
