20boatLast summer on my visit to Cape Cod, my travel companions and I paid a visit to Truro Vineyards, a winery in Truro, MA right near the very tip of the Cape. We had a lovely afternoon hanging out in the vineyard, having lunch, enjoying the scenery, chatting with local artists and sampling the wine.

While at Truro Vineyards we learned that they have expanded their offerings to include a locally made rum – under the label Twenty Boat. I took this picture at the booth where they were offering samples of Twenty Boat. Although I am not a rum drinker, I love the idea of a Cape Cod rum and think it would make a great gift for the right person,

About Twenty Boat Barrel Aged Cape Cod Rum: “The spirit’s complexity is derived from aromas and flavors of vanilla bean with a strong caramel nuttiness and rich minerality. A lingering finish brings sweet notes of butterscotch balanced with the earthiness of molasses and tobacco.”

About Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod: “We pioneered the art of maritime grape growing on the Cape, and our vinifera vineyard produces wine with intense flavor and lush varietal character. We open our doors each season to wine lovers from around the world who visit the tasting room and gift shop in our carefully restored 1830’s farmhouse. We are about 1/2 a mile from the ocean and the bay on either side, nestled in the hills of Truro on Rt. 6A. We now have a distillery, South Hollow Spirits, producing Twenty Boat Spiced Rum & Twenty Boat Amber Rum made from organic molasses and cane sugar juice distilled in our 250 gallon copper pot still. We hope you can come visit us soon to enjoy our wines and our new rum!”
