The Wonderful World of Cider

Posted on by


Now that spring has finally sprung in my hometown, I am able to enjoy all of the drinks that were just too sweet for the cold winter season. In addition to enjoying the variety of rum drinks that I so love, I am also now able to enjoy my second love, which is hard cider. Being where I’m from we have a number of local breweries, including one of the state’s finest apple beer company.

There is a common misconception that hard cider is more of a fall drink, but I have found that it is best enjoyed during the warm summer and spring months. Something about its crisp, refreshing taste always reminds me of long lazy days on the lake, sipping a cider and just enjoying what nature has to offer. Just me and my Mad Moon & Griffin hard cider in Ohio.

Unlike any other

It is cold where I come from, so when the weather finally breaks and turns into warm weather, me and those around me are ready to live life to the fullest. There is truly nothing like enjoying the sites and sounds of the Midwest while having a great North Carolina hard cider. In fact, it is the idea that our local company is branching out to other states and bringing in some of their stylish products that allow us to enjoy all that hard cider has to offer.

It is truly amazing to see our local company begin to expand across the United States, establishing itself as one of the best hard ciders in the country. It seemed like only yesterday that only locals had knowledge of what great cider was available in our small town. Now the rest of the country gets to enjoy what we have known for years is one of the best hard ciders not only in the country, but the world.


For your next spring and summer outing, consider cracking a cool, crisp, hard cider, knowing that the craze is far from over. Cider is quickly becoming one of the most popular drinks in the country, get in on the ground floor!

Benefits of drinking in moderation

Posted on by


While many people are under the impression that drinking is bad, there is evidence that shows that drinking in moderation can actually be good for you. Numerous studies have shown that there are a variety of physical benefits to drinking such as healthier digestive system, less joint pain, better sleep, and better skin. In fact, the idea of drinking in moderation extends beyond that of physical benefits, but mental benefits as well.

Drinking in moderation, and what I mean by that is 1-2 full drinks per day, can actually reduce stress on an overall level and increase brain function. Many people have heard stories about people living for a long time and drinking every day, and while this seems strange, there are reasons behind it.

The fountain of youth

Of course alcohol is not a fountain of youth, but it does do wonders for keeping people healthy and happy. The lowered rates of anxiety and depression, which are one of the greatest contributors to aging can lead to a better overall mental an physical appearance. There is something about the restorative powers of drinking in moderation that has led experts to conduct more studies on the topic.

So far, each study has found benefits to drinking in moderation along numerous health spectrums. From physical to mental well-being to a fun activity to share with someone close to you, drinking in moderation is one of life’s situations where health and pleasure are the same. So go ahead and drink up! But only in moderation.

The summer season

Posted on by


Summer is coming up and people are enjoying outdoor activities and their favorite spirits. There is truly nothing better than sharing a drink in nice weather with those that you care about. With so many different options to choose from, it can be difficult to make the right decision for you next dinner party or barbecue, so why not try rum for a change?

Rum is one of the most versatile drinks in the world. Brewed in many different locations using many different techniques, rum is one of the best choices when it comes to mixing up drinks and enjoying the sights and sounds of summer.

The best mix

The best mix is one that a person can enjoy, but also one that can be enjoyed no matter the environment. The thing about rum is that it is the perfect drink for both sipping and shooting. An unmatched drink in terms of versatility and temperance. It’s a drink that will always allow you to spruce up the party and make every guest in attendance happy.

Whether it is a nice cola or fruity mix, rum is second to none when it comes to a drink that fills any mood. And for those on a budget, there is no substitute for what rum can bring to the party. Both cheap and expensive rum is good, making it the perfect choice for any occasion.


While other beverages may be more popular, for my money, there is no substitute for a good rum.

Advertising in spirits

Posted on by


There was a time in which alcohol was advertised at a much larger rate than in current times. And while the reason for this is complicated, there is an overlying reason for this change. The main reason that alcohol is not as heavily advertised is that people now realize that it does have negative effects and that many advertisers do not stress the importance of drinking responsibly.

And although there is a level of education in which people understand the consequences of drinking and driving, advertisers have been a bit slower in understanding that their message has a direct effect on consumers.

So what is to be done?

In some ways, advertising has begun to catch up with the common person, in that there has been a sharp decline in the advertising of alcoholic beverages. It is possible that the shift is cultural, part of it educational, but the fact remains that there is a noticeable shift in the way in which alcohol is advertised.

Although it is possible to shift the nature of the argument, the fact remains that people are better understanding the dangers of alcohol and advertisers are understanding that advertising the product must be done carefully.


The argument as to whether or not advertising alcohol is the most ethical practice, it is definitely part of our society. There is no debate that care must be exercised

A brief rum overview

Posted on by


When it comes to spirits, many people think that the only difference is taste. And what is interesting about that is the unique way in which alcoholic beverages are brewed. What makes rum so interesting is the fact that it is one of the few spirits brewed using sugar.

Rum is distilled using molasses, sugar cane, and other sugar-based products before it is aged in a barrel for a certain number of years. It is this process that gives it its sweet taste and ability to be infused with a wide variety of flavors. Unlike other spirits which use mash, rum is almost purely distilled sugar, making it one of the most pure forms of alcohol.

Born of sugar

Rum is one of the best drinks for mixing due to its inherent purity in being made from sugar. In some ways, it is unique in the way in which it is distilled, drawn from sweet substances and aged over long periods of time. In fact, rum on average is aged for twice as long as other spirits. It is this that gives it its rich taste and ability to be mixed with virtually any other drink for a crisp, refreshing experience.

Much like my other favorite forms of alcohol, rum, in its purest form provides a taste and versatility that few other spirits have to offer. The next time you are thinking of exploring the wide world of spirits, consider rum and all of its taste and versatility.

What makes rum unique?

Posted on by


People often ask me why rum is my favorite drink, to which my response is almost always “because it is”. While this might sound like a curt way of describing it, it is actually a way to illustrate a deeper way of appreciating not only rum, but spirits as a whole.

My response is somewhat of a dichotomy, in that rum is not always my drink of choice, but rather one that I can always fall back on if I’m looking to share my expertise with others. Rum has its own unique way of being brewed, and also its own unique way that it makes people feel.

A drink of choice

Rum, brewed all over the world is often considered one of the most unique and versatile spirits on the planet. From mixed drinks to straight or on the rocks, rum provides people with many options depending on their mood and lifestyle.

From a cheap brand to the classiest of brands, rum has always been something that I was able to afford and was able to scale with my income. Of course I don’t always say all of this in conversation, but I want to.


The reason that I decided to make this site was to share my love and knowledge of rum. However, throughout the years, I have realized that drink has its own caveats and reasons to like it. Keep reading for tips on how to enjoy different spirits as well as what makes them unique.

Always drink responsibly

Posted on by


If you are like me, you have seen people around you experience negative life situations as a result of drinking. In fact, most people know someone that has suffered greatly as a result of alcohol. Whether it is a freak car accident, death, disease, or just a night that needed an apology, there is no debate that drinking can be dangerous.

At Rum Club, we focus on the fun and social benefits to enjoying spirits responsibly. When reading the content contained within this blog, remember that it is our goal to share information with readers while remembering to always drink responsibly.

What that means

In short, drinking responsibly is something that everyone should do and come to their own conclusions about. Drinking responsibly for one person is not the same as drinking responsibly for another, so it is important to know one’s limits as an individual.

Chances are, anyone that has experimented with spirits has had too much to drink at one time or another. There is nothing wrong with this, but truly appreciating spirits means knowing your limits and staying in control while consuming alcohol.


We will be covering a lot about rum and alcohol and understand that it can be dangerous to consume. Our goal is not only to highlight how much fun enjoying spirits with friends and family can be, but also understanding how dangerous it can be as well. When reading, always remember that drinking responsibly is the number one thing to remember when having fun.
