Voted #1, One Barrel Rum(TM) Is Awarded Gold Medal at International Canes Spirits Festival, 2nd Year in a Row
Wednesday April 4, 5:00 am ET

TAMPA, FL--(MARKET WIRE)--Apr 4, 2007 -- One Barrel Rum(TM) was awarded the Gold Medal for the second year in a row at the Annual International Cane Spirits Festival & Tasting Competition (ICS) on Saturday night, March 24, 2007.

States Gray Solomon of Liquor Group, which distributes the top-ranking Rum, 'Best' in the Dark Rum Category, "What makes the commendation more remarkable is that One Barrel(TM) has only been imported in the States for one short year. One Barrel(TM) employs artisanal techniques and traditions which have been refined over 450 years."

One Barrel(TM) is imported by Dan Carey's Arizona-based HAP L.L.C. ( A journeyman photographer, inveterate global diver and now a self described "Rum Runner," Carey began importing One Barrel(TM) as an outcome of a diving adventure to Belize that went awry. He concluded after one sip that it is "the best rum I've ever tasted." One Barrel(TM) has consistently beaten out the more recognizable brands and is the top-selling and the favored choice for Rum in Belize, its provenance.

Distilled and bottled by the Travelers Group, Carey says, "To describe the taste of One Barrel(TM) is not an easy task due to its complexity. The rich and aromatic Rum has all the facets of many top-tier, hand-crafted single malt liquors and cognacs."

"I've heard One Barrel's(TM) nose described as 'floral.' The aroma is reminiscent of vanilla, mocha and papaya fruit," confirms Dori Bryant, organizer of the annual Int'l Cane Spirits Festival and Tasting Competition.

One Barrel(TM) is also available in California, Indiana, Michigan, Texas, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Utah, Montana, Virginia and Wyoming. For a complete list of outlets or to order, contact [email protected] and for Florida and Michigan [email protected]
