As far as I know and can find only in Louisiana. They have a great website and they also have a myspace page.

Good Stuff!

In 2004 I bought a bottle when I visited New Orleans. Its not bad from what I remember. The look of the bottles have sure changed though and they didn't have a white rum.

I still have a bottle in my collection.

Regarding your rums... I can get the light (crystal) and the dark rums in my local outlet in Central Illinois. They don't have the spiced on the shelf though.

The bottles I have are different labels than what you have now. They seem to show "artwork" presumably from a local artist.

Is the "art" inside the bottle any different than what is being produced today?

I have no idea how old the rum on the shelves in this store is! I've heard some good things about the crystal, and would like to give it a try.

Default Old Labels

Our Owner, James Michalopoulos, is the artist of the paintings you see inside of the bottles. If the Bottles do not have the current labels on them ( black and white or red and white) then you are purchasing old label product. In and of itself still a great product but one that was made prior to the addition of our pot still.
The following link will show you what some of our old labels looked like.

if you want to purchase the new product you can call the distillery directly or you can visit

For those that haven't yet tried the Old New Orleans Rums, I highly recommend them. I'm an especially big fan of the spiced...and I'm going to make sure I get a tour of the distillery when I'm in NOLA for ToTC in a week and a half.

I took a look at the labels link... what's on the shelf near me is the product from 2002.

I think I'll give the white a try sometime.
