Detroit's Industry Love Letter to Rum

We have two rules at DCD. First, we make what we want to drink. Second, we make spirits using the best ingredients from our surroundings in Michigan. The problem is we wanted to drink daquiris this summer and sugar cane doesn’t grow in Michigan. So we broke some rules and invited our friends to do something we’ve never done before. Welcome Summer Rum. A spirit made in collaboration with some of our favorite bars and bartenders across Detroit. We call it “Detroit’s Industry Love Letter to Rum.” 


The Jamaican funk hits on the nose with ripe banana, pineapple and clove. The light rose gold body has a creamy mouthfeel full of Caribbean fruit notes like papaya, guava, mangos and coconut. The silky smooth finish offers hints lime, toffee and French Indie spice.

ORIGINS: A blend of rums sourced from Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, Guyana and the US Virgin Islands
