Proof66 Notes

Backwards Distilling Sword Swallower rum continues their line of circus labels. The rum itself is made using "evaporated cane juice," which separates it from the general fermented molasses of traditional rums. They age it briefly in ex-tequila barrels. This and a special strain of yeast gives the rum, they say, tropical fruit flavor notes.

Backwards Distilling was founded in 2014 in Mills, Wyoming by the entire Pollock family—Bill, Amber, Chad, and Kathy—and those initials form the "Back" in "Backwards Distilling." Their company is meant to reflect their penchant for "those aspects of the world that are unique, that have a little bit of quirk, that fall outside the norm."
