Default A new rum distillery in Puerto Rico

A young married couple have obtained permits and rights to distill rum under the brand name of Pitorro in the west coast town of Mayaguez. There is a Blanco and a number of flavored rums. They appear to be growing their own cane.

Here is an article in the Spanish language newspaper Primera Hora that I translated with Google. It's a bit rough, but you'll get the idea.

I hope to be able to get my hands on some soon and review it.
