Our story begins with Callisto’s founder, Giles, who left his native Bermuda – an island steeped in the history of rum – for the Bay with a dream of spreading his passion for the spirit to a wider Californian audience.
With his team, they set about reinventing the centuries old spirit for the refined Californian palette. Too many Americans today associate rum with the cheap, sugary spirit, reminiscent of their glory days in college.
The team spent a year infusing rum blends with hundreds of different California botanicals, setting their kitchen on fire twice, before they finally crafted the perfect recipe that not only captures the essence of California but redefines century old industry traditions to create a rum that is relevant to the next generation of rum drinkers.
Today, thankfully, Callisto is produced with our partners and master distillers at an award-winning distillery in Petaluma, CA, and we haven’t had any fires since!
