BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Three Roll Estate has changed its name.
The family-owned distillery is now known as Oxbow Rum Distillery and will begin making rum from local sugarcane. The new distillery’s name comes from the ancient Mississippi River oxbow in Pointe Coupee Parish, according to an official press release.
“The rum category has historically lacked transparency and regulation. Consumers often wonder
what’s really in the bottle”, said Olivia Stewart, president of Oxbow Rum Distillery. “We want to share
our authentic rums with fans seeking a true sipping experience. With Louisiana’s rich history of growing sugarcane, we’d love for the state to become known as America’s rum destination.”
The renamed distillery will continue making certain products under its old name, but new products will also be produced. New products include Oxbow Small Batch White Rum, Oxbow Barrel Aged Straight Rum, and Oxbow Rhum Louisiane Cane Juice Agricole.
“These fine sipping rums embody the essence of Louisiana sugarcane. Unfiltered and distilled in small batches, Oxbow Rum has no sweeteners or additives,” said Stewart. “You can experience the bright, smooth taste of local sugarcane in every sip.”
The new Oxbow Rum Distillery is located downtown in Baton Rouge for tours and tastings from Thursday to Saturday noon to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
