When Islamorada Brewery & Distillery opened its second location in Fort Pierce back in 2016, we laser-focused our efforts towards building for the future of the brand, not just for our immediate production requirements. Having launched our first Spirit in 2017 and enjoying instant support from the community, we knew we’d have to expand, and expand fast. By 2019, we had earned national recognition and accolades for nearly all of our Spirit offerings. Our north location assists in the distillation process giving us the ability to keep up with the increasingly high demand. Since then, we have expertly distilled some of Florida’s best Spirits (if we do say so ourselves) including our award-winning Gin, Hibiscus Gin, Vodka, Reserve Rum, Select Rum, and Dark Rum, along with our Silver and Spiced Rums. We are very excited for the future ahead and can’t wait to bring more of our spirit projects to market for our customers and fans to enjoy.

The Newest Batch Of
Our Reserve Rum
Aged for over a year and a half in Rye Whiskey Char 3 Barrels, Islamorada Reserve Rum’s unique flavor derives from the use of premium, GMO-free Select Molasses and our unique combination distillation process. Driving all the alcohol from the mixture through a pot distillation and using our copper column for a 5x distillation of the second run produces an incredibly smooth, light canvas for the barrel flavor to take hold. Our Reserve Rum is the smoothest in our premium category lineup. The use of small aging barrels intensifies the contact between the Rum’s vanilla-spiced body and the smoky whiskey flavor of the solid oak inner boards. Allowing time to play its part brings to life an unexpected and richly layered flavor that proves that age is much more than just a number. Available only in our taprooms, stop by to pick up this exquisite rum while supplies last.
It’s that time of year again when the flavors are just right and the rum barrels are ripe for the plucking. Aged for 3.5 years in rye whiskey barrels, this premium rum shows off the delicate characteristics of its blackstrap base while exhibiting the smooth flavors that are summoned during our extensive aging process. Each batch of our delicious Reserve Rum is unique in its own way so don’t miss out on 2022’s finest. Bottles are sold exclusively at our taprooms.

ISLAMORADA BEVERAGES TO HOST GIVE A PINT, GET A PINT BLOOD DRIVE FEBRUARY 19TH, 2022
FORT PIERCE, ISLAMORADA,
FL – Islamorada Beverages, in partnership with OneBlood, is hosting two community blood drives on Saturday, February 19, from 1:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Both locations (on the Treasure Coast and in the Florida Keys) will have BIG RED BUSES on the ready to help us reach our 500-pint goal. Donors will be celebrated and thanked with a drink voucher which can be used at any time. Help us support a great cause.
Nationally and locally, blood supplies have dropped to critically low levels, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to affect donations. In early January, the American Red Cross warned of the blood crisis – citing the 62% drop in college and high school blood drives due to the pandemic as two contributing factors. Other reasons for the blood shortage were ongoing blood drive cancellations because of illness, staffing limitations and weather-related closures and a surge of COVID-19 cases, and an active flu season that may compound the already bad situation. Overall, the pandemic has revealed the most significant shortage in the past 10 years in terms of the typical blood level of donations; about 10% lower than historical collections.
Nationwide, many areas have less than a one-day supply of type O blood—the most needed and transfused blood type that’s vital in emergency situations. The type O blood supply is at its lowest since May 2020, shortly after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s common to assume that accidents use the most donated blood however, there are many reasons patients need blood. People needing the most blood include those who are being treated for cancer, are undergoing orthopedic or cardiovascular surgeries, or those who are being treated for inherited blood disorders. There is simply no substitute for blood and volunteer blood donors are the only source for patients in need of blood and blood products. It is a truly life-saving endeavor, and a single donation can save up to three lives. Those who are eligible are urged to share their good health by donating blood.
Pre-registration is preferred for the February 19th blood drive, however, walk-ins will be welcome all day at both locations. Register online at www.OneBlood/Donate-Now.org using sponsor code #67024 (Treasure Coast) or #67237 (Islamorada)
In case you haven’t been introduced yet, meet Crystal Jones. Crystal started with the company back in 2015 as a bartender and has since moved on to becoming the Assistant Brewer at our Islamorada location. Crystal has been big part of our success for a long time and has dedicated her career to making some of the best beer the state of Florida has to offer. Cheers to Crystal and her continued success.
Stay warm on those chilly nights in paradise with our new full-zip hooded jacket. Made from a 80% cotton/ 20% polyester fleece blend, this jacket is lightweight and designed for comfort.
It’s been a great year for football once again. Come celebrate the end of another exciting season by joining us this February 13th at our Islamorada taproom for what’s gearing up to be an action-packed season finale. Make sure to get here early and reserve a seat, as seating will fill up quickly in the beer garden. You’re more than welcome to bring your own chairs and claim a spot on the grass if there are no available options.
Mark your calendars because South Florida Comedy will be returning to the Fort Pierce taproom for another great night of laughs. If you are unable to attend this event, grab an Islamorada Beer and watch the event live on our Instagram. The event will start at 7 pm on February 19th.
Attention stout lovers, our delicious oatmeal stout, Snake Creek, will be making its seasonal debut in style this February. This local favorite will be available in cans for the first time ever, so don’t wait to stop in and take home a 6 pack because supply is limited and won’t last long. Snake Creek is the perfect winter-style beer to enjoy on those fridged 70 degree nights.
