A pioneer in the botanical rum space, Callisto introduces a new generation of rum to the next generation of spirit drinkers. Challenging preconceived notions of what a rum can be, Callisto presents a fresh and distinctly California interpretation on a centuries old Caribbean spirit. Infused in California with locally sourced botanicals, Callisto’s flavor captures the essence of California’s great outdoors with it’s floral aromas and smooth taste.
Callisto’s founder, Giles, 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 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. Thankfully, today the final product is produced with our partners and master distillers at an award-winning distillery in Petaluma, CA.
