What’s better than a cocktail made with locally made, award-winning rum? A cocktail made with a grilled pineapple special release locally made award-winning rum, that’s what.
South Florida Distillers, makers of Fwaygo white rum, are selling bottles of their limited-edition grilled pineapple Fwaygo, available this week at their Fort Lauderdale distillery. According to cofounder Joe Durkin, the specialty release is one of many he and founding partner Avi Aisenberg plan to launch moving forward.
Looking for something a little more exotic? While you’ll have to wait until next year’s grilled pineapple release, the next specialty batch will be available much sooner. Durkin says he is currently working on his latest creation, a spicy coconut Fwaygo that will be aged in sriracha barrels (yes, barrel aging in sriracha containers is actually a thing).
