Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Initially funky and herbaceous on the nose, but a lemon-tangerine-candy note follows. Very floral with a hint of grassiness. Elegant mouthfeel, with a molasses note, citrus and grass. Clean, bright, long finish. Quite complex. (Mar 2015)

The first spirit Americans drank was Rum. The rum was distilled domestically from molasses (the by-product of sugar production) shipped from the British colonies in the tropics. These early Americans used rum for imbibing as well as currency. The first distillery on record in this country (c 1664), was located on present day Staten Island – it produced rum. Unfortunately, the domestic rum industry dried up when the British imposed the Molasses Tax. Farmers then began moving west, growing grains and distilling whiskey. The Noble Experiment NYC seeks to bring native rum back to the US. We are super excited about our first baby – Owney’s NYC Rum — a distinctive, complex, dry white rum made from high quality/sugar content, all-natural, non-GMO molasses
At the turn of the 20th Century, and prior to “The Noble Experiment”, New York City was home to thousands of thriving distilleries. When the National Prohibition Act was implemented in 1920, tens of thousands of illegal, and often homemade, stills used by both small and large bootleggers were believed to produce moonshine throughout the city. Since the abolishment of the infamous act and failed experiment, the domestic small batch distilling industry of the US has been largely dormant due to prohibitive legislation. The exorbitant legislation has provided the big, multinational corporations the opportunity to supply the market with product from overseas or continuously-distilled, large scale alternatives. In 2012, Bridget C Firtle, established The Noble Experiment NYC to bring the timeless tradition of rum distilling back to New York City. The company aims to produce all natural, premium quality distilled spirits distinctive to New York City through the use of 100% domestic ingredients. Small batch, hand-crafted spirits were once a thing of the past – our dream is to reinvent this industry once again alongside the continued growth and rebirth of the cocktail. The Noble Experiment NYC welcomes visitors for tours. Please check “Tours, Tastings & Events” tab for available dates and times.
