From Cane to Bottle

Alligator¬†Bay Distillers is a Floridian craft rum distillery located here in Punta Gorda, FL just off of 75.

Alex and Ben Voss are the brothers behind the operations. Through the encouragement of family and friends, they started producing rum locally in December 2015.

Their rum is made with 100% Florida molasses sourced at the Clewiston sugar mill located 70 miles east of the distillery in Clewiston, FL. The resulting taste is similar to dark Caribbean spiced rums.

The distillery recently teamed up with Fort Myers Brewing Company to create a rum flavored stout in their casks and now, Alligator Bay Rum is aging a special Beer Cask Reserve blend from the same barrel.

Tours and tastings are FREE Monday through Friday and Saturdays.
