Seems like distribution for this, in my neck of the woods, is much more widespread with the latest batch. 6 months ago there was only one retailer I knew of that carried Stiggins and it was strictly reserved for wholesale to bars. Now atleast three different liquor store companies in Austin are carrying it. I was hoarding 4 bottles and using it sparingly. I feel at ease now. Hopefully this is a product they keep in production for a while to come.

Interesting article on the history behind this rum in the NY Times last month:
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/08/dining/new-pineapple-rum-plantation-pineapple-rum-stiggins-fancy.html

Includes a nice daiquiri variation as well (adapted from Freddie Sarkis at the Broken Shaker in Chicago):

Pineapple Express
1.5 ounces Plantation Pineapple Rum Stiggins' Fancy
.75 ounce 100 proof rhum agricole, preferably Neisson
.75 ounce fresh lime juice
.50 ounce 1:1 simple syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Squeeze a grapefruit twist over glass and discard.




Also excellent in a mojito in place of plantation 3 star. yum.

Today a coworker gave me a clipping from the August 2018 Bon Appetit, which includes a mention of Stiggins’ Fancy:
