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!
