Sam Powell, a former U.S. Marine, tells us about Fighting Spirits rum.
After serving for 7 years in the US Marine Corps, which included two tours in Iraq, Sam decided he wanted to be a distiller. So for the last few years, while working as a self employed contractor and rancher, he's been developing my own very special rum. It starts with the traditional rum flavors that come from the molasses, married to a pleasant background of American oak, followed by a distinct homemade caramel and finally just a touch of vanilla. It's 80 proof, or 40% alcohol. The taste testing from people around the country has been very very positive.
A distillery will give him a great vehicle to continuously support veterans who need it, because 10% of his sales will be donated to various veteran based charities, like The Wounded Warrior Project.
