Spirits distribution is very difficult in LA due to many factors, the least of which the distances, not to mention the traffic, that sales people have to contend deal with in southern California.

As mentioned above, there is a much larger market for tequila and vodka so distributors are much more interested in those products. And then there are only a few distributors in Southern California who are interested in rum. The good news is that several great rums are coming south from the Bay Area.

Like good rum, patience will be rewarded, it just takes some time.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
