Old Mill Brand|
In 1936, a young dreamer and adventurer from the backwoods of Oregon had an idea. If fine rum could be found in the West Indies, it might be imported for sale to the loggers and fishermen of the Pacific Northwest. An old atlas in the local library led our hero to the obscure island of St. Croix, in those days accessible only by ship.
After a long voyage from San Francisco via the Panama Canal, the discoverer of this exceptional rum made contact with the owners of a local distillery that had for generations been making whole sugar cane rums for the Caribbean market and it was agreed that a special export rum would be custom made for export to the Pacific Northwest.
