Since 1995, I have seen more than a handful of distilleries in the islands close and only RL Seale has built a new distillery that didn't replace an existing distillery. A few distillers have made improvements but the trend in the islands over the last 15 years has not been favorable to the expansion of the industry.

On the other hand, in the US, there are more micro distilleries popping up every year, and most are making unaged spirits like vodka, gin and eau de vie while learning how difficult it is to make good rum.

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