Default Rum distillers / blenders

Your feedback has been invaluable in making this the most visited website for rum information. From your posts it is clear that most of us are tired of the marketing hype that accompanies our favorite spirit.

So here's your chance to tell me which company distiller you'd like to ask about their product. I'll be offering this space where you will be able to ask questions and get answers from the distillers. This will be moderated and the distillers will be choosing the questions they will be answering so don't expect to learn all the trade secrets.

Please don't post your questions yet, but I would like to know which distilleries you'd like to learn more about.

I like to know how Prichard's gets its unique oak flavor.

And I'd like to understand Mount Gay, I've sailed in a number of regattas that they sponsored but never found anyone who could answer any questions.

A couple of blenders/bottlers come to mind, I'll have to think about importers.

I would very much like to question DDL. We have contact with many of the above producers but no-one from Guyana.....plus love that Demerara.......

And I would love Captain Jimbo to question any of the producers from Martinique.
