Owner of 82 Wes Kevin at the bar with drinks

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.
