The Rum Diary

Just Look at All This Rum on Cape Cod

None Pretty soon, you’ll be hearing this:

“So how was your Memorial Day?”

And if your answer somehow doesn’t involve a rum producer on the Cape with its own food truck and a bar inside of a wooden shack... well, you did it wrong. Sorry.

Get it right the first time with South Hollow Spirits, a new Cape Cod rum distillery that loves company, launching its debut rum online tomorrow and opening for visitors on Friday.

There hasn’t been a (legal) distillery on the Cape since Prohibition. But then the good folks at Truro Vineyards decided to open this separate distillery on their 19th-century estate and start pumping out a spiced rum that goes by the name of Twenty Boat.

First, you’ll want to find that white wooden shack on their property. Because there’s a bar inside, and it’s distributing rum sangria for alfresco lawn consumption. And it’s conveniently located next to a parked truck dispensing lobster rolls. Food from trucks. Crazy, we know.

Then you remember that this is a distillery with daily tours, and soon you’re face-to-face with a 250-gallon copper still doing its rum thing. Let it do it. Then taste more rum at the bar.

It’s like an infinite rum loop.
