Manatawny Still Works Announces the Release of 135 Limited Edition Bottles


May 26, 2015 -- Pottstown, PA -- Manatawny Still Works has made significant progress as a craft distillery since opening exactly one year ago. The hand-crafted spirit maker's tasting room in Pottstown, Pennsylvania has become a hip, local hot spot to chill to live music and enjoy popular guest food trucks. Spirits of character including vodka, whiskey, rum and gin have defined Manatawny Still Works and an authentic distillery producing quality products.

In December the Montgomery County distillery released their first batch of aged whiskey followed by several other limited edition runs with discernable and enjoyable differences.

Now, they will release their first aged rum.

On June 27, Manatawny Still Works will offer 135 limited edition numbered bottles of their first Batch Rum.

"Our rum was aged for a full year in new American oak barrels," revealed Max Pfeffer, Manatawny's founding distiller. "It's very mellow and smooth."

Max and the Manatawny Still Works team are delighted to offer limited edition, 750ml bottles on a first-come, first-served basis at the Still Works at Manatawny on June 27 starting at noon.

"We pushed back the release of the Batch Rum so that aging would be just over a full year in the barrel," adds Randy McKinley, vice president of sales and marketing for MSW. "The releases of our Batch Whiskey have sold out quickly and we expect the same for this special spirit."

Deep amber in color, Manatawny Still Works' aged rum delivers the perfect amount of sweetness and warmth when sipped neat. The aroma reminds one of butterscotch, apricots and burnt sugar while the molasses-based rum features a woody spice with flavorful undertones of banana, vanilla and rich cream.

"The palette of the Batch Rum is very full and very balanced," adds Pfeffer. "It is full-bodied and delightful from nose to palate."

One of America's oldest and most important spirits, Rum's history is as old as the nation's and Manatawny Still Works—a distillery focused on the future while reverant of the past recognizes that greatness in our tribute to the spirit.

Visit the distillery on June 27 to try our Batch Rum for yourself!

Manatawny Still Works is a new distillery bottling the highest quality hand-crafted spirits in small batches. The distillery is located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on the banks of Manatawny Creek - whose Lenape name literally means, "the place we meet to drink."
