Hye Rum

Hye Rum In 2011, a chance meeting with James Davidson at a pot luck dinner club sparked a conversation between the two of us about the art of distilling. At the time, James was interested in whiskey production. He had studied distilling after learning his father might be interested in opening a distillery. He didn’t mention anything to me about his distilling aspirations, but had heard I had a reputation throughout Texas for excellence in winemaking. We began to meet regularly at the dinner club, often discussing French rums, a style which was unknown to James at the time. We excitedly began researching the production and history of rums, trading messages frequently from different spots around the globe on the different rums we came across. We searched for the best rums available in the US, France and the Caribbean – always learning more and more about the style we wanted to produce. We quickly set off to collaborate on making our own rums using barrels from my winery.
