Boardroom Spirit’s Ship’s Cat Aged Rum

Boardroom Spirits is excited to announce the release of three new spirits, one of which is their first-ever aged rum, Ship’s Cat Aged Rum ($38.99) along with Ship’s Cat White Rum ($21.99and an ‘ameowzing’ high-octane 64% ABV Ship’s Cat Navy Strength ($27.99). The aged rum is 40% ABV, aged in New American White Oak barrels and then finished in Jamaican Rum barrels. The rum has a natural amber color with no added sugars. Ship’s Cat Aged Rum is light-bodied, bright, and fruity, with notes of candied dates and raisins and a cognac-like finish. Ship’s Cat White Rum is soft on the pallet with a clean smooth vanilla finish. Ship’s Cat Navy Strength has a warm smooth easy to drink finish with more forward notes of vanilla and butterscotch.

The name and bottle design are a tribute to Catman, the distillery’s beloved cat who lives at Boardroom Spirits and holds the titles of Chief Mouser and Chief Morale Officer. In terms of the nautical theme, cats have long-kept sailors company at sea, playing a critical role in controlling rodents and the ship ties to the rum rations given to sailors.

Anyone interested in ordering Ship’s Cat Rum, other spirts and pre-batched cocktails can head to Boardroom’s online store Boardroom.Square.Site. Orders can either be picked up at the Lansdale distillery the same or next day or delivered for a $5 flat-rate within 25 miles of the distillery (zip code 19446). Deliveries typically come within one to two days.

Pink Boots Society Presents: Pink Boots Cheers

(The Pink Boots Society Philadelphia Chapter)

The Pink Boots Society Philadelphia Chapter is inviting beer drinkers to support and celebrate women in the beer industry with a virtual Pink Boots “Cheers!” on Saturday, May 16th. The toast is in lieu of the postponed second annual Bold Women and Beer Festival, previously scheduled for May 16th.

This virtual toast is to celebrate women in the industry and also support the breweries by encouraging local imbibers to purchase Pink Boots collaborative beers brewed earlier this year. These beers would typically have been available at the respective breweries and at the Bold Women and Beer Festival with a portion of sales going directly to Pink Boots. However, due to COVID-19, breweries were shut down and the Bold Women and Beer Festival was postponed.

To participate in Pink Boots “Cheers!”, beer lovers should follow the following steps:

• Pick up a 4-pack, 6-pack or growler of a local Pink Boots collaboration beer or schedule a delivery from a local Pink Boots member brewery
• Take a photo or video of your beer
• On Saturday, May 16, at 5 p.m., raise a toast to support the Pink Boots Society and Bold Women and Beer and share the photo or video to social media using the hashtags: #PinkBootsCheers and #BoldWomenandCheer
