Default A brief introduction from a newbie

Hello all, my name is Jason. I am actually not much of a drinker, but I like handmade, craft type products. I have had lots of interests and hobbies over the years, most of which involved me learning some kind of skill or craft. Primitive Bowmaking, braintanning, herbal medicine, gardening, outdoor photography, flint knapping, wild fiber plants, and other skills as they came up. I have had my time learning to brew beer and ferment wine as a teenager and when I get myself set up intend to start that again. Part of that process will hopefully include some time with craft distilled beverages. Again, not really a drinker, but man, I sure am interested in these wonderfully crafted liquors. I hope that is an adequate introduction for now. Looking forward to chatting with some of you. Be Well, Jason

Welcome to the MoR. You will enjoy this site and the knowledgable people who visit here. As you aquaint yourself and become an active member, you might want to visit the Rum Recipe Contest (home page, left, part way down). As a member you have three votes a day and the contest runs for all of July. I encourage you to vote for the rum recipe that you think would taste best. Pay attention to Red Sail in the Sunset (my entry), it is easy to make and very good to drink. If you have been to the Caribbean, you will probably recognise the ingredients, Coecoei, hand crafted in coastal Caribbean for hundreds of years; Arundel rum, made free of machines. You may not be much of a drinker, but this is a really good drink made with some very ancient ingredients.
Again, Welcome to MoR and please vote.
