Florida's Rum Revolution: St. Augustine Distillery Marries Flavor with History

There's a rum revolution going on in St. Augustine, Florida and it's proudly taking place in the coastal city's historic Florida Power & Light Ice Plant. The beautiful building, dating back to 1907, now houses the St. Augustine Distillery, and what they're doing with local, Florida agriculture in the form of hand crafted spirits is definitely sip-worthy.

When Phillip McDaniel and his wife decided it was time to do something with the space and revitalized the building in the city's Lincolnville neighborhood, they didn't realize the juggernaut they were launching. On top of the distillery sits another community-owned business, The Ice Plant Bar, and between the two enterprises, they've created over 100 jobs, restored the historic building, and are producing some of the best hand crafted, small batch rum and spirits in the state.
