Lost Spirits has arrived in San Diego!!!

Keg & Bottle on El Cajon Blvd and College has 5 different flavors. Please go buy some so that they will continue to stock it!

I found some other great rums there too, so look at the "what is your latest rum purchase" thread later tonight when I get off work.

Bryan, I tried to have them order me a bottle of the Colonial, so PLEASE sell them a bottle for me. Thanks!!

Thanks so much for the support Lunavideogames!!!! Were so excited to see our wares show up in San Diego! Thank you for helping make that a reality.

Sadly I can't sell them a colonial. The colonial was the first successful experiment in a long running science project. We're in the process of implementing all sorts of new creations based on what we learned from that project. But initially only one batch worked and Bounty Hunter Rare Wines bought all of it.

Sorry to sound like a doting father but I LOVE that bottling. You can get it here:

Thanks again for the support!!!!

Thanks Kkocka! I do them in my spare time. I actually have an art degree that I never get to use. : )

Here's an interesting article that hints at the processes used by Lost Spirits Distillery...

Any opinions?

Sounds extremely interesting. I would love to taste some of the rum aged with that process. And I'm glad his is being done by someone who is making delicious, great rums. I'm sure a lot of people are going to poo-poo the process without even trying it. Some blinded taste tests may be in order...

I finally got my hands on the Navy Style rum (yea!). After a few sips to get a feel for it, I made a Black Magic style (i.e., coffee flavored) drink with it. While I enjoyed it, it didn't totally play nicely with some of the other ingredients (coffee, lime, passion fruit, etc). And I kept thinking, "this somehow reminds me of smoked meat... Why?!?" Well, Bryan's description of wanting to give it a smokey wood and gunpowder flavor definitely answers that. My taste buds weren't lying to me. I am scratching my head though trying to figure out exactly what to do with this rum. Thinking a Navy Grog would be the obvious. Any other ideas? It's got a great flavor, but the uniqueness of it and its high ABV make it a little finicky to mix with (at least to me).

You could always throw it in a Painkiller or mix it in with some other rums in a Mai Tai to give it a kick - maybe float it. Kevin Upthegrove has covered Polynesian and Cuban rums from them, though I don't think he's done anything w/the Navy.

The Cuban is a potent piece, and I have a hard time drinking it straight (although I keep trying). If you have run out of Lemon Hart, this should be your first choice.



See, and this was a recent interest of mine. I actually found a place near my work that carries both proofs of their Navy Rum, but sadly not the Cuban 151. I don't think it would be a replacement for Lemon Hart 151 (I mean we all know it isn't but that's not the point) but I'm curious as to what a side-by-side taste comparison in a drink would taste like. My own personal plan is to try Gosling's 151 as a substitute.

Anyway, its interesting that you mention the opposite of what people are saying about their Polynesian-Inspired Rum. I guess time will tell. And that American-Colonial stuff is supposed to be a limited run (I think)and is like $100 a crack. For that price I'd probably aim for some Havana Club 15 instead.




If you are searching a substitute for LH151 in the Lost Spirits range of rums I think that you could find more similarities about the profile of flavor in the Navy style (it's "only" 63%) than in the Cuban 151...in spite of they are very different than other overproof rums that I tasted.

Obviously the Cuban 151 it in another level than the ED151, Cruzan 151 or Bacardi 151 (with a lot of difference).

If you are searching a good replacement for LH151 try the Ed Hamilton Demerara 151, I never tasted it (because is impossible to find in Europe...maybe in a next US travel!) but the people talks me very good about it!!! But if you are searching a great overproof rums for tiki drinks LS are your sure choice!!! I'm anxious about the new launches that Bryan and Joanne are preparing to surprise us!!!

I found the Navy the hardest to mix but you may want to give this thing a try that I was working on when I had Tiki Oasis on my mind (side note: when episode 45 of my show goes live Thursday 8/13 it'll have 2 TIki Oasis 15 themed cocktails). Anyway, this is a Corn 'n Oil variant using the Lost Spirits Navy. Tweak the lime and sugar amounts to taste.

Lost in Spirits
2 oz Lost Spirits Navy rum (I happened to be using the 57 when working on the recipe)
1/2 oz falernum
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/4 oz simple syrup

Build over ice in an old-fashioned glass. Stir until frosty. Sip.

As mentioned in episode 44, it's worth noting that Lost Spirits is working on new rums that should be available soon, and they continue to work on their aging technology. As such they have no remaining inventory of their Navy, Polynesian, or Cuban Inspired 151 rums. So if you enjoy any of these 3 Lost Spirits rums and see them in the wild, you'll want to pick them up.

(edit to add a photo as I was inspired to mix one tonight)

Does anyone know if they've stopped production on the rums completely or are they just on hiatus? I haven't seem to be able to get a definitive answer. Any info would be great, mahalo in advance
