VooDoo Spiced Rum Infused with Hemp from California

3D Spirits today announced a new high-proof expression of spiced rum -- VooDoo Spiced Rum Infused with Hemp -- featuring an infusion of hemp along with Madagascar vanilla, dried fruit, and Caribbean spices at 46% abv.

The rum is distilled in the Caribbean from black strap molasses, then aged in American whiskey barrels before it makes its journey to Northern California to be blended with natural flavors and extracts.

VooDoo's hemp expression is meant to be a melding of three island cultures -- Caribbean, Tiki and Rastafarian, all with a common thread -- good vibes and good rum.

Brand creators Dan DaDalt (RedRum) and Michael Machat (Vampire Vineyards) came up with the idea of a hemp infused rum while enjoying a reggae show in Los Angeles.

"It seemed like a natural fit -- music, rum, hemp. We soon began experimenting with hemp flavors and extracts, which gives the rum an earthy note that compliments the other natural flavors," says DaDalt.

"We were already big fans of hemp, an incredible super-plant that has too many benefits to count. The fact that it's illegal to grow in the U.S. is baffling, and we hope our rum will help raise awareness and ultimately play a part in its legalization. We support pro-hemp organizations and even print our labels on fair trade hemp paper, another industry first," according to Machat.

3D Spirits and Company, founded in 1996, produces RedRum fruit flavored rum with mango, pineapple, coconut and cherry; VooDoo spiced rum with vanilla, clove and cinnamon; and Jolly Roger coconut and key lime rum.
