We're gearing up for our biggest and best 630 Day yet!
This year's party is all about EXPEDITIONS and RUM. They go hand in hand, right!? Specifically my all-time favorite expedition: the immortal Lewis & Clark Expedition. And the inaugural release of our flagship line of rum: Expedition Rum!
So the name of this year's 630 Day is "RUMBULLION"! 'Rumbullion' is an archaic English term for a riotous good time! So come join us for exactly that!
St. Louis was founded at the confluence of two of the mightiest rivers on this continent: the Missippi and the Missouri. This strategic spot helped St. Louis earn the nickname "Gateway to the West" which inspired the Gateway Arch, an iconic monument recognizable worldwide, which then inspired us in founding StilL 630 Distillery.
The Missouri River is one of our great local natural resources and it's particularly important as the pathway for Lewis & Clark's expedition in 1804 that began to map the Louisiana Purchase. It's personally precious to me, as a raft guide and general water lover, because it is also the course for the world's longest and greatest kayak race: the MR 340. Which I have successfully completed in 2014 and will (foolishly) attempt again this July!
Therefore we are proud to announce that we have selected the MO River Relief organization as our charity partner for this year's 630 Day! They are a great group of dedicated citizens who strive to promote, protect, and clean up our great local resource. A portion of our proceeds from the event will go directly to River Relief. Learn more about this great non-profit and how you can make an impact HERE.
630 Day means new spirit releases, and this year takes it up a notch with two new spirits and the triumphant return of an old favorite!
We will be releasing our inaugural batch of our flagship rum line: Expedition Rum! This pure molasses rum was aged in new oak barrels and then finished slightly in our famed Double Barrel RallyPoint barrels and it's fantastic! (read more about Expedition Rum HERE)
S.S. Sorghum Whiskey! We our releasing the Second Batch of our most award-winning spirit! (read more about S.S. Sorghum Whiskey HERE) Just like Batch 1, it won't last long, so make sure you come get it while it lasts!
Our THIRD spirit release this 630 Day is the 2nd in our Brewery Collaboration Series! This year's brewery partner is the awesome Modern Brewery! Last year, we started working on this collaboration, featuring their delicious Biere de Garde (a french style 'keeping beer'-traditionally brewed in the spring and cellared until fall, we took this delicious beer and distilled it into an incredible whiskey. Intense candied floral and sweet notes make this unlike anything we've ever created before! And to complete the collaboration, Modern Brewery has been aging the same beer in some of our used RallyPoint Rye Whiskey barrels! So come out for 630 Day and taste both variations on the same alcohol side by side!
Modern Brewery, of the glowing light bulb tap handles, and one of the best craft breweries around is this year's featured partner! They will be pouring their RallyPoint barrel-aged Biere de Garde, which is named: Cambre de Garde ('cambre' is French for 'Arch'). They will have at least one more of their delicious beers on tap to sate whatever your thirst may be!
Our goal is to make 630 Day the best party of the year. To do that, we wanted to partner with the best chef in town, so naturally we called upon James Beard Award-winning chef Gerard Craft and his hot new restaurant: Porano Pasta!! Read what Eater.com has to say about Porano Pasta. Porano will be here serving up some incredibly delicious food to pair with our great new craft spirits and Modern Brewery's awesome craft beer!
This year, we're also proud to welcome St. Louis' own gourmet chocolatier: Rick Jordan! He has been named one of the 10 Best Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Professional! So in-between drinks and eats, get your sweet fix with the best handmade chocolates in the country!
We're pulling out all the stops to make this the BEST 630 Day yet! So we hope you'll come down to the distillery on June 30th and help make it so! You don't want to miss this party, so get your tickets now and let's have a RUMBULLION!
