Bacardi won the Thirteenth Annual Great Rum Punch Challenge on April 1 at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum with its Five Finger Punch. Other competitors included Bilbo Baggins, who was the runner up; Vola’s Dockside Grill; Live Oak; Mount Defiance Cidery & Distillery; and Brabo.
Rum Punch Challenge guests enjoyed the many different styles of punches, but also a wide range of food from local establishments including Gadsby’s Tavern Restaurant, Bittersweet, and Tasteful Affairs Catering.
The origins of the Great Rum Punch Challenge came from the museum’s participation in the American Whiskey Trail, an educational experience of the cultural heritage and history of spirits in America. To learn more, visit www.americanwhiskeytrail.com.
