Anybody have any luck finding Deadhead in IL, WI, IN, or IA?

We've had no luck finding it in Chicago. Our primary booze source is Binny's, and they don't stock it yet.
As a back-up, there's Foremost, but the two I've been to in the city don't know what I'm talking about.

We checked Wisconsin last weekend and no dice; headed downstate and to Iowa next weekend... hopefully we'll turn
somethin' up there.

My parents claim to have seen it in Florida, but the Deadhead website doesn't even list Florida as one
of the states its distributed in.

We're so... thirsty!

Just bumping this thread because a friend asked me if i knew who designed the bottle and i thought it might be mentioned here but it isn't. Does anybody know who did?

Also, back on page 4 i said that if this rum was ever to become available here i would have expected it to cost at least $50AUS. Well it IS now available and the cheapest liquor store in the country sells it for $68.90. Bargain.

Hey Robbie,
Save your bucks-imho its just awful. The bottle and associated swag that I have collected are very cool. I tasted it last year ( Joe had to open his bottle) and mine has sat on the Sharkbite backbar unopened ever since. You can sample some of mine come June or even drink it til you fall down if you like it ( the rum, nobody likes falling down). Lookin forward to your return!
Later,
David and CeCe

Thanks David. I had a mini 50ml bottle sent to me which i was able to try and didn't think much of it myself. I would like to give it another try neat and also in a cocktail or two but i'm not willing to spend that much on it going by my last experience with it. There are plenty of other rums i can by for that price which are far better.
I'll definitely take you up on your offer of sampling some of yours or drinking it until i fall down.
I look forward to my return also. See you soon.

A friend got me a bottle several months back and since the night he brought it over and we drank some neat, it has sat uncorked. As a sipper there are better things in my bar to enjoy. As a base in a mixed drink I've yet to experiment. Curious if anyone has come up with a good cocktail using it.

I had the same results Mike. I like the way that they support the tiki scene and I know some good mixologists that have made drinks from it though.

I have a bottle and use it as I would a utilitarian gold aged rum, such as Barcardi 8 or The Real McCoy. It's probably closer in quality to Bacardi, but still useful in cocktails that call for gold rum.

Also, here are three recipes featuring Deadhead from a cocktail contest we held a few years ago at The Hukilau. I like the winner a lot.
