The flagship spirit from San Diego distillery Seven Caves is a barrel-aged rum, and they’ve recently found a creative use for the spent barrels—a newly released Rum Barrel Aged Maple Syrup.

“We are a true Grain to Glass San Diego distillery,” according to the craft distiller's website, “which means every drop of alcohol that leaves our shop came to life there in the first place. We don't buy mass quantities of cheap neutral spirits from huge plants or source spirits made and aged by someone else, run it through our still (or not), slap our name on it and call it good. Every bottle that leaves our shop is handcrafted, hand lettered and hand numbered.”

Currently located in the neighborhood of Miramar; we had a Willy Wonka-like experience with the owner, Geoff Longenecker. He prides himself on creating unique and diverse batches of distilled spirits. We actually had a rare chance to taste a one of a kind delicious gin coming right out of the still at over 150 proof.
