I spend a lot of time up north in the heart of Sugar Beet Country visiting family & friends, and while I know next to nothing about growing beets, sometimes it is fun to think up other uses for common materials. After reading an article about ‘Stuffed Molasses‘ I thought it might be fun to create a new use for sugar beets.
‘Boutique Distilleries’ are becoming a popular crop surplus solution in the United States. Potato farmers are distilling Vodka, so why shouldn’t Sugar Beet farmers create a Rum distillery? Many years there is a crop surplus of Sugar Beets, and the growers could be use these leftover beets to make ‘Molasses Sugar Syrup’ for the production of Frozen Dakota Rum.
Frozen Dakota – Chilled Rum Distillery
Farmers always seem to come up with new and creative ways to market their crops, and every product needs something to make it stand out on the shelf.
When one thinks of Rum, it is of hot beaches on the Caribbean islands and cool boat drinks made with Rum …and What could be Cooling, and also ironic, than to make Rum in a location many see as the cold & frozen Dakotas?
Since Frozen Dakota Distillery Chilled Rum makes one think of cold & ice – I attempted to make the bottle rendering represent the look of ice.
Just Brainstorming & Having Fun!!
BTW — The Dakotas are beautiful and nice for much of the year and I would encourage all to visit sometime – But ya might want to skip the months of December through February if you don’t like -30 degree weather. *GRIN*
