Rougaroux Rums Essential Facts
Deep in the heart of the Southern Louisiana Cajun country lurks a mysterious creature called the Rougaroux®, (Roo ga roo). It lingers in the sugarcane fields, emerging only during the full moon to exact justice on the wicked, its curse lasting 101 days. Our American Style 101 proof rum delivers monstrous power, with a bold molasses flavor and a lingering sweetness unique to sugarcane grown in Louisiana.
We discovered that the thick molasses and brown sugar character of Sugarshine is absolutely fantastic in cocktails. If you want your rum and coke to taste like coke, buy something else. If you want it to taste like rum, you’ve found your nirvana.
Full Moon Dark Rum:
Our Full Moon Dark Rum is aged on white oak for smoothness and flavor, with no extracts, caramel or artificial ingredients added.
The whiskey sipper’s rum. Laid back, oaky, and mysterious, our premium dark rum speaks for itself without saying a word.
13 Pennies Praline Rum:
Legend has it that 13 pennies laid outside your door will protect you. The Rougaroux® cannot count past the number 12 and keep trying until the sun rises and he has to retreat back to his lair. Our 13 Pennies Praline Rum begins with only locally produced raw sugar and molasses and is flavored with toasted Louisiana pecans, local craft-made cane syrup, and Madagascar vanilla beans. Our rum is handcrafted in small batches at our distillery, located in the middle of a sugarcane field in Thibodaux, Louisiana. And yes…. There are 13 Pennies right outside our front door.
