Bayou Rum is handmade in the largest privately-owned rum distillery in the USA, utilizing traditional methods with state-of-the-art technology for all four steps: fermentation, distillation, maturation, and bottling. The beautiful facility in Lacassine, Louisiana offers distillery tours, rum tasting bar and an incomparable gift shop experience for those who visit the home of Bayou Rum. FRESH LOUISIANA INGREDIENTS. Following our authentic “sugar house” recipe, we gather raw unrefined cane sugar and molasses from M.A. Patout & Sons Enterprise Factory in Patoutville - all pressed from fresh sugarcane harvested from Louisiana fields. Learn about how we make Bayou Rum from Louisiana Sugarcane and experience a working distillery. The tour gathers in the Viewing Room to embark on a guided factory tour which includes first hand viewing of the new state of the art distillery. After the tour, the group returns to the Bayou Rum Tasting Bar for the adults to have an opportunity to Taste the Spirit of Louisiana™ with a ½ ounce sample of each Silver Bayou Rum and Spiced Bayou Rum. Children are not allowed in the Tasting Bar area and will be escorted through the courtyard and returned to the Gift Shop to wait for parents or guardians – just outside the wrought iron fence divider. Restrooms are always open on the west side of the Visitor Center. Be prepared to walk some and move from air conditioned room to ambient warehouse conditions. Nothing too strenuous. We hope to see you soon! (Please note that for safety reasons, neither smoking nor pets are permitted on the premises.) THROW YOUR OWN BAYOU BASH Louisianans know that great cocktails are at the heart of any get-together with friends. Whether it’s firing up the crawfish pot to getting the grill going for a tailgate party – great friends and good times are a bayou tradition.
