Vizcaya VXOP Cask 21, one of our Top 10 Rums

by Jeff Hoyt

Thursday is National Rum Day. Celebrate with one of our Top 10 Rums. Better yet, celebrate with two of them! They are all good choices for sipping, either neat or over ice.

Not a rum fan? Trying one of these spirits might turn you into one. But there’s nothing that says you can’t start your weekend Thursday night with one of our recently published Top 10 Tequilas instead. These south-of-the-border specialties are also designed for sipping, but we can show you how to make the perfect margarita to keep you cool. Or a pitcher of them. Or even a carbonated margarita!

If you’re a whiskey fan, perhaps you can end August 16 with one of our Top 10 Bourbons. We also feature our Top 10 Spirits and Top 10 Cognacs. Beer fans will appreciate our new list of Top 10 Craft Beers and Top 10 Summer Beers. Or if you’re looking for something less filling, may we recommend our Top 10 Rosés or Top 10 Summer Wines?

Keep coming back to for the best in spirits, wine and beer. And since August is National Water Quality Month, don’t miss our Top 10 Bottled Waters!
