Cape Coral, Florida is becoming quite the destination spot! You’ll find beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and all the fun that Florida offers, plus Cape Coral has more navigable waterways and canals than any other city on the planet. Even better, it’s home to Wicked Dolphin Distillery!
Wicked Dolphin is a family-run distillery known for its award-winning small-batch rum. They also make a tasty RumShine and vodka. They use 100% Florida sugar and local ingredients for all their products, which are made in small batches using an American copper pot still. In Cape Coral, they’re only a short half-hour away from the local sugarcane fields and one of their main ingredients.
They offer several flavors of rum, again, all handcrafted in small batches. Their Gold Rum is made with a special molasses fermentation while their Spiced Rum is flavored with a special spice blend and vanilla, sweetened with local honey and a bit of Florida orange peels for a little flair. They offer several fruit-flavored varieties too, including Coconut, Key Lime, Mango, Pineapple, and Banana.
They offer two Reserve Rums that are aged in used bourbon barrels for a signature taste. The Rumshine uses the same small batch process as their other rums, and adds fresh, local fruit that gives the Blueberry RumShine and Strawberry RumShine a naturally sweet taste.
And after purchasing a few of their spirits, try one of the many cocktail recipes on their website. Try the featured cocktail recipe, Wicked Punch, or customer favorites like Mango Kiwi or Blueberry Mojito.
