The Bayou Rum Distillery has been a landmark in Louisiana since it's conception in 2013 and it's about time the world knows about it!

Drinks International has set out to find the best distilleries in the world and recognize their excellence in hospitality through the Distillery Experience Challenge. Distilleries across the globe can enter themselves in the competition in categories like Best Educational Experience or Best Digital & Social Media Initiative, just to name a few. But it's Drink International's award for Best Large-scale Visitors Center that the Louisiana based rum distillery claimed.

If you've ever been to the Bayou Rum Distillery in Lacassine, Louisiana then you know their visitor experience is second to none. Bayou Rum's friendly employee's, fun and educational tours, tastings, and beautiful location and building make every visit special.

Plus, have you seen all of their Bayou Rum swag? It's almost impossible to walk into their visitors center without taking something home. I should know, I have a Bayou Rum tee shirt, koozie, coasters, and hat, plus everything else my husband owns.

If you've never been to the Bayou Rum Distillery, or if you want to plan another visit, check out their tour schedule and distillery information on their website.
