Americans now have a choice! In a market dominated by mass-produced, imported rum, RAILEAN is the first women-owned distillery to produce American Rum™ certified as “Made in USA”. This Houston/Galveston distillery handcrafts each batch of the rustic, piratey drinks using unsulfured, Grade-A sugarcane molasses from the Gulf Coast. Crafted with quality over quantity in mind, the smooth, clean spirit is enhanced by aging in new, double-charred American oak barrels to extract maximum color, aroma and flavor.
The RAILEAN Distillery is located in a sleepy little town along the shores of Galveston Bay in San Leon, Texas. Affectionately referred to as a “small drinking community with a large fishing problem” in reference to the numerous dive bars dotting the Galveston Bay landscape, this small city once served as a stronghold for the infamous pirate Jean Lafitte. The area is also home to a thriving population of wild parrots called Monk Parakeets, which is the official RAILEAN mascot.
Armed with a fascination for pirate lore and a passion for rum, founder Kelly Railean is a pioneer in the American Craft Rum Revolution, producing four unique styles of American Rum including an unaged White Rum, barrel aged blended Reserve XO Rum, single barrel Small Cask Rum, and a Spiced Rum.
