Lakeward Spirits Releases Rum!

Lakeward is pleased to announce the release of their most recent offering – Inland Sea Rum. According to Head Distiller Adam Bystran, “Lakeward Spirits’ Inland Sea Rum begins with the finest molasses. Our unique yeast strain and solid-copper column still work together to create a smooth mouthfeel and spicy aroma – perfect in a mojito or served simply on-the-rocks.” Be sure to stop by and try Buffalo’s latest rum to hit the market. Enjoy it on the patio, with a gentle island breeze.
