Pitorro Artisanal Flavoring Workshop

Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Registration is required. You will receive the link to the meeting via email once registered.

A “clandestine” virtual, two-part workshop on flavoring pitorro to your liking!

Pitorro, Puerto Rican moonshine rum, is a distilled spirit made from sugarcane molasses.  An integral part of the island’s culture, pitorro has been the true rum of Puerto Rico since the mid-1700s.

Pitorro is virtually impossible to find outside of Puerto Rico, but our good friends at the new Puerto Rico Distillery in Frederick are offering this special workshop for Museum friends!

July 9 – Learn the history and cultural significance of this spirit and meet father and daughter team Crystal and Angel Rivera, founders and owners of Puerto Rico Distillery.  We’ll also discuss the list of ingredients needed for the flavoring workshop.

July 16 – Follow along with your own bottle of Clandestino pitorro and conclude with your very own tasty bottle of coconut, almond, pistachio, pineapple, or coffee pitorro.

Why Clandestino?  Pittoro is often much stronger than commercially produced rum and historically made in clandestine distilleries.  But it’s no secret that you can purchase your own bottle of Clandestino online.  If you add “PRDSSM” in the “Tell us how to recognize you” field, PRD will donate $5 to the Museum for each bottle of Clandestino purchased.  Options for curbside pickup or delivery available during checkout.
