Cayman Spirits Co. Grand Cayman

They began with   just a couple of friends with an idea for recreating authentic, ocean-aged rum. They have come a long way since then, with a talented team, an expanded distilling facility, and a broad range of spirits to share, they have expanded a small business into a growing international company.

Cayman Spirits, the only distillery in Grand Cayman

Cayman Spirits began handcrafting small-batch spirits in 2008 on the Georgetown waterfront. With only a single column still, they did everything by hand, using local ingredients, traditional West Indies distilling techniques, and a tireless eye for detail.

And they still do to this day. But for them, making outstanding spirits means going beyond tradition, and making improvements along the path to perfection. With adventurous ideas and careful nuance, they recaptured authentic ocean-maturation with our award-winning Seven Fathoms Rum.

Using a still manufactured in Kentucky, which they believe is the best place in the world to find a quality still, they continue to grow and create a world class rum.

The rum is aged in a secret location, seven fathoms under water in seasoned kegs to give it an unparalleled flavor.

Peach Brandy and the Preacher

A preacher went to visit a member of the community and invited him to come to church Sunday morning. It seems that this
man was a producer of fine peach brandy, and told the preacher that he would attend his church IF the pastor would drink some of his brandy and admit doing so in front of his congregation. The preacher agreed and drank up.

Sunday morning the man visited the church. The preacher recognized the man from the pulpit and said:

“I see Mr. Johnson is here with us this morning. I want to thank him publically for his hospitality this week and especially for the peaches he gave me and the spirit in which they were given.”

The Bar Bully

Sell Art Online

The Bar Bully

A guy is sitting in a bar, just staring at his drink. A half-hour later, he’s still there, staring at his drink, and hasn’t drunk a drop.

Suddenly a bully steps up to the bar, takes the guy’s drink, and gulps it all down.

The poor man starts crying.

“Oh, come on, man!” the bully says. “I was just joking! Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I can’t stand to see a man cry.”

“This day is the worst of my life,” the man says, mopping at his tears with his sleeve. “First, I got fired for oversleeping and getting to work late. I was only three months from vesting my pension! Then, as I’m leaving the building, I find out my car was stolen. I get in a cab to return home and I forget my wallet and credit cards in the cab. Then, I go inside and find my wife in bed with my best friend!”

“That is rough,” the bully admits.

“There’s more!” the dejected man says. “So I end up at this bar, and just when I was mustering up the courage to put an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison!”

I Need a Push

I Need a Push!

A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o’clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

“Not a chance,” says the husband, “it is 3 o’clock in the morning!He slams the door and returns to bed.

“Who was that?” asked his wife.

“Just some drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.

“Did you help him?” she asks.

“No, I did not, it is 3 o’clock in the morning and it’s pouring out there!”

“Well, you have a short memory,” says his wife. “Can’t you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!”

The man does as he is told: he gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain. He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”

“Yes!” comes back the answer.

“Do you still need a push?” calls out the husband.

“Yes, please!” comes the reply from the dark.

“OK. Where are you?” asks the husband.

“Over here,” replies the drunk, “on the swing!”

Pros and Cons of Whiskey

Judge Sweat on Whiskey

Judge Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr. (2 October 1922-23 February 1996) was a judge, law professor, and state representative in Mississippi for one term, elected when he was just 24. He is best known for his 1952 speech on the floor of the Mississippi state legislature concerning whiskey. Reportedly, the speech took Sweat two and a half months to write. And here it is, in its entirety:
My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey:If when you say whiskey you mean the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, and despair, and shame and helplessness, and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it.

But, if when you say whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman’s step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life’s great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and infirm; to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it.

This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.

I have to say, I agree completely!

The Best Pub in the World

The Best Pub in the World

A Scotsman, an Englishman and a Newfoundlander were sitting in a
bar in Toronto. The view was fantastic, the beer excellent, the food
exceptional.

“As good as this is,” said the Scotsman, “I still prefer the pubs
back home. In Glasgow, there’s a wee place called McTavish’s. The
landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks,
he will buy the fifth drink for you.”

“Well, Angus,” said the Englishman, “At my local in London, the Red
Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first
two.”

“Ahhh, that’s nothin’,” said the Newfie. “Back home in Sin Jahn’s
there’s the Codfish Bar. The moment you set foot in the place, they’ll
buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then,
when you’ve had enough drinks, they’ll take you upstairs and see that
you get laid. All on the house!”

The Englishman and Scotsman immediately shout down the Newfie’s claims, but he swears every word is true.

“Well,” said the Englishman, still suspicious. “Did this actually happen to you?”

“Not me myself, personally, no,” admitted the Newf. “But it did happen to me sister quite a few times.”

You could drink or—

You Could Drink, Or…

Social Worker: Do you drink?

Man: Yes.

Social Worker: How much a day?

Man: Three six packs.

Social Worker: How much is a six pack?

Man: about $10.00.

Social Worker: And how long have you been drinking that much?

Man: Fifteen years.

Social Worker: So one six pack costs you $10.00, and you have three
six-packs a day, which puts your spending each month at about $900. In
one year, it would be $10,800. Correct?

Man: Yeah, that math works out. Sure.

Social Worker: If in one year you spend $10,800, not accounting for
inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending at around $162,000,
correct?

Man: Yep.

Social Worker: Do you know that if you hadn’t drank all that beer,
that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account
and, after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you
could have now bought a brand new Ferrari?

long pause

Man: Do you drink?

Social Worker: No.

Man: Then why the hell are you driving a Chevy?
