The Origins of Striped Lion Distilling
Striped Lion was started by Erin & Kevin Wright back in 2020. While they had collected rum and dreamt about starting their own distillery for years, the dream was put on hold by pandemic restrictions and pending construction permits. Kevin & Erin have travelled near and far, tasting hundreds of different varieties of rum to find the flavors that speak to them. They’ve combined their passion for rum and science to craft spirits they’re proud to share with South Jersey. What can you find when you visit their tasting room?
Visit Striped Lion
Visit their location in Woodbury, New Jersey to purchase a bottle, enjoy a cocktail, or tour the distillery. We recommend tasting their Spiced Rum. It starts off as a pure single rum. Fermented from organic American molasses and 100% pot distilled, it’s then vapor-distilled through whole spices, adding flavor without using artificial ingredients.
Striped Lion’s fans rave over their handcrafted cocktails. If you visit their tasting room, you can’t skip out on the Cocoa Creme. They Cocoa Rum, simple syrup, cream, and seltzer come together to create a rich & creamy cocktail you’ll adore. A dairy-free version is available as well. If you’re looking to tae a tour, be sure to make reservations for a Saturday or Sunday, when tours are offered. Kevin & Erin are always excited to share their expansive knowledge about rum with visitors.
