Moomy Distilling Company – North Carolina’s Newest Distillery Announced

Poised to bring a world class Agricole Rhum to the Carolinas and beyond

APEX, North Carolina – November 16, 2015 – Moomy Distilling Company was founded in October of 2014, by Andrew and Kim Moomy. They are a husband and wife team with a passion and a vision to produce a premium Agricole style Rhum. They both have deep ties to North Carolina and want to make the Wake County area their base for bringing this little known western Caribbean style to everyone. Beyond bringing this exquisite style of Rhum to the Carolinas, Moomy Distilling Company also has a desire to use their company for the good of their community. Part of their core mission statement is to give back and make the world a better place. Rhum Agricole is a style of rhum that originated in the French West Indies, most notably the island Martinique. The main difference from ordinary rum is that an overwhelming majority of rums are distilled from molasses, which is the leftover product after the crystallized sugar has been extracted. Rhum Agricole is produced from the pressing of freshly cut sugarcane and fermenting the juice. This produces a very distinctive flavor. This rhum is marked by floral and earthy overtones. It is a light bodied rhum and when matured in oak barrels produces a fine sipping rhum to rival some of the best Cognacs. 

While North Carolina does not have massive sugar cane fields, Moomy Distilling Company has formulated from accessible ingredients what they believe will produce a premium Rhum. Which they believe will honor the purest expression of this spirit. They will start with their offering of a White Rhum, but they have every intention of aging some of this heavenly spirit in a special style called the Solera method. No oak chips, no adjuncts, this spirit deserves the delicate maturation that the elegant solera method imparts. Currently, they are on track to have their spirit on local shelves by the summer of 2016! However, before this distillery can open, Moomy Distilling Company needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $16,000 by December 4, 2015. The funds raised will go towards the installation of specialized equipment needed for the production and bottling process, plumbing work such as trench drains, and other electrical work installation. 

To help bring North Carolina’s newest distillery to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered by February 2016. 

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Moomy Distilling Company reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
