Thomas Tew Rum is inspired by the craftsmanship
of past time.
It is slowly made in a small pot still to replicate the
rum which would have been
produced in Newport in the past. The still, along with
the dark molasses, temperate climate,
and local water combine to create a spirit
that hasn't been available for over a century.
One sip of this flavorful, dark rum
and you'll wonder how this tradition could have ever disappeared.
The Thomas Tew Distillery and its partner company, Coastal Extreme Brewing (the makers of Newport Storm Beer)
have a brand new home in the north end of Newport! Come visit for a tour and taste of history!
