In the autumn of 2010, Brant Braue was asked by his brother, ”If you could wake up tomorrow and do anything, what would it be?” After a few days of thought, the answer came to him: I would open and run a distillery. A few months later, at the local craft brewery, Brant happened into conversation with Krista Haley, a local attorney who was in the market for a new challenge in her life. Over the next few months, they discussed the idea at length and over cocktails by the pool, realized that this dream could be a reality. And so Jersey Artisan Distilling was born. ? After many months of hard work, Jersey Artisan Distilling is now the first distillery to open in New Jersey since Prohibition ended. We are going to focus on making our spirits in the classic style, using modernized versions of the techniques that have made spirits great since colonial times. Our primary focus will be on making rum, bringing back the flavors and tastes that made rum the most popular spirit in colonial times and beyond.
Jersey Artisan Distilling Busted Barrel Dark Rum is made from the finest molasses made in Louisiana, distill it through our custom copper stills and carbon filter it to give it a smooth delicious taste unlike any silver rum you’ve ever tried.
Jersey Artisan Distilling Busted Barrel Dark Rum has matured in American white oak barrels and offer hints of vanilla and caramel, while carrying enough oakiness to evoke the finest American whiskeys! It stands out among craft sipping rums.
Both Busted Barrel Silver and Busted Barrel Dark were awarded Silver Medals at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.
