Our story

From the team that brought you Twisted Sun Rum and The Still in the Heights, we welcome you to 82° West Distilling, the first craft rum distillery in Tampa! We started out in the garage with a little still and a big dream. For years, we learned the craft and acquired the right equipment. Along the way, we worked with the city of Tampa on zoning to allow craft distilleries. After much success, we set out to open the first craft rum distillery in Tampa. Our dream is now a reality! Taste the difference in historic Seminole Heights.

Crewe of 1000

In honor of our flagship flavor Mutiny, we established an elite membership for our most loyal rum enthusiasts. Join our Crewe of 1000 and experience an exclusive connection with 82° West Distilling. 82° West Rum is crafted in 1000 bottle batches, therefore we are offering 1000 Crewe positions in 82° West Distilling. Enlisting in our Crewe of 1000 comes with premier privileges and benefits. Members will enjoy premium access to our first aged barrels, our first new recipes and more. A selection of these bottles will never be available to the public, only to be enjoyed by the Crewe.

All month long we're celebrating with special events, private tastings and more!

Cheers with Us
