THE STORY BEHIND THE RUM

OUR STORY

Rum Runners

After two decades of killing it in the coffee game, La Colombe founders Todd and JP wanted to celebrate with something special. On their sourcing trips around the world, they noticed that wherever there was coffee production happening, there was usually a little moonshining action going on as well. Taking distilling tips from resourceful coffee farmers back to Philly, they set up a micro-distillery in their flagship café in Fishtown and started producing Different Drum, a coffee-infused craft sipping rum.

Coffee By Day, Rum By Night

Making coffee is essentially an exercise in chemistry, and making rum isn’t much different. Using a process called ‘cavitation,’ we infuse high-quality rum with the subtle, nuanced flavors of coffee. Our Nizza coffee lends itself beautifully to the natural ingredients and sweetness of the rum. It’s great in mixed drinks, but this stuff is smooth – when we say it’s a sipping rum, we mean it.
