Review: Downslope Vanilla Rum

Downslope Vanilla Rum is one of five rums created at the Downslope Distillery in Centennial Colorado.  They also distill Gin, Vodka, and Whiskey.  The distillery was founded May 2008 by three friends, Mitch Abate, Matt Causey, and Andy Causey.  The first two spirits, white rum and a vodka made from sugar cane were released in August 2009.  Downslope Vanilla Rum is made from dried Maui cane juice that has been processed into sugar.  The cane juice is fermented in 300 gallon tanks and double distilled in 220 gallon batches in a Double Diamond pot still created by Copper Moonshine Stills in Arkansas.  The rum is than filtered through The Lichtenstein, a devise designed by Master Distiller Mitch Abate.  Tahitian and Indonesian Vanilla Beans are steeped in the white rum infusing only the natural flavor of these two unique beans with their well crafted white rum.   Read more »
