Here is the scoop:
So, a few weeks or more ago Toby lets me know there are some great changed coming for Tailwinds. Now, finally they are all beginning to unfold. This is great not just for everyone there at TW and there is a great group of people there, but also for the Craft Rum business. I am amazed by the camaraderie displayed between Distillers, Brewers etc... They want EVERYONE to succeed. So I find this a great thing for all in the business -- even #RTRR...

Thank all of you for your continued support as Tailwinds is now turning 2 years old!!!

Where: 12307 S. Route 59 Plainfield, IL 60585
So it like some great things happening and it makes me glad to see it... Let's look back into the recent past and report.
After a HUGE week of response to our blog about Roulaison Distilling coming (not) soon (enough) in New Orleans, Andrew Lohfeld was nice enough to take time and pass on some more good stuff ---
".... in case you would like to include it for your readers or on your site, we can answer anyone's questions on our twitter or through email, and our website is roulaison.com (though it's just a blank slate until we get a designer on it) Oh! And I forgot to mention, in case you were wondering, Roulaison was the French-Creole word for the sugar cane harvest down in Louisiana, which historically was a time when work was easy to come by and the celebrations were plentiful."
The big unanswered question was - What is the last name of Patrick (Andrews') business partner...? Well it is Hernandez so now we know pretty much all we need, for now... So Patrick, Andrew -- Keep going! #RTRR readers, remember to click on the links above to find out more about a very interesting new Rum soon to hit!
Time for me to think about travel. I will be posting live here as we head toward the Independence Day weekend and you will be treated to some re-blogs and stop buy to get updates on the road too, in the week after the 4th..
Until Next Time----
