Thomas Tew

Being a print journalist I’m no stranger to ‘the sauce’.

I like my cups.

That’s why I was so happy the paper sent me to visit Newport Distilling Company to get a few pictures of the master at work on Thomas Tew rum. I have a close friend who is a merchant mariner so I try not to romanticize pirates (oh, Tom Tew was a pirate… did I mention that?) but in this case we’ll make an exception as,

1. Newport has a tradition of making rum and I love tradition.

and 2. it’s Halloween and if there is one day I’m going to give rum making pirates a free pass its Halloween.


ps: Gimmee some candy!
