Back in 2012 a few industrious and rum loving folks had the wondrous idea to make a new rum and distill it right here in southwest Florida, Cape Coral to be exact. Utilizing Florida's very own sugar cane crops and other locally sourced ingredients, all of their rum is small batch, handcrafted using an American copper still pot. Rums are then placed into American Kentucky whiskey barrels and aged anywhere from 3 to 14 years. Wicked Dolphin is the largest craft rum distiller in Florida and perhaps in the United States.
Florida, America’s sugar cane capital, has been home to Cape Coral's own Wicked Dolphin Rum since 2012. 100% Florida sugar and local ingredients are used when handcrafting rum in small batches in an American Copper Pot Still (the largest in Florida). Wicked Dolphin Rum is aged in American White Oak Barrels which previously were used for premium Kentucky Bourbon, for anywhere from 3 to 14 years.
