PRESS RELEASE


SMUGGLER’S COVE INTRODUCES EURYDICE RUM

SAN FRANCISCO, CA- Smuggler’s Cove, San Francisco’s forthcoming destination for rum and exotic cocktails, proudly announces Eurydice, a new rum crafted exclusively for Smuggler’s Cove. Handcrafted by the artisan distillers of St. George Spirits in consultation with Smuggler’s Cove owner Martin Cate, Eurydice (yur-id-ih-see) is a completely unique rum. Eurydice starts with the fresh-pressed cane juice of 100% California-grown sugar cane. The cane, grown in Southern California, is harvested and crushed at St George Spirits’ Alameda facility where it is fermented with two strains of wine yeast designed to accent the fruit and floral notes of the cane. Eurydice is then distilled in an alembic pot still and aged in two different barrels: a re-toasted French wine cask, followed by a used bourbon barrel to develop subtle vanilla, brown sugar, and butter notes. The final product marries these characteristics to the light, dry, floral qualities of an agricole-style rhum for a unique rum experience.

Eurydice is a 100% California grown and produced artisan product. The name derives from Zerene Eurydice, the California state butterfly. Eurydice was produced in extremely limited quantities and will be available exclusively at Smuggler’s Cove when it opens to the public this fall.

I do like the idea that Eurydice led Orpheus into the underworld- I thought about all the times that rum had led me into the underworld, too!

But yeah, I did think the same thing the drink, JT!


Thanks everyone for the kind words and support- there's more surprises in store at The Cove! Stay Tuned!

Does Eurydice's taste resemble other rums out there, such as 10 Cane?

It tastes closest to an eleve sous bois agricole, with a slight twist or two,

Martin, congrats on your new rum.
I hope you don't mind me (wouldn't stop me anyway) posting a pic of the rum you mentioned. I'm sure some people have not heard of this brand.
.......AND notice it is from Martin-ique.
Surely your rum will gain it's own notoriety/description in time.
Looking forward to Smuggler's Cove.
