I first tried pairing the Aquila Rum with my favorite mixer, ended up drinking it straight. 

Me and The wife were feeling feeling adventurous, decided to try Lightning, its now a staple in my reserves.

After hours and hours of trial and error we developed our proprietary filtration system the Aquifilter. This system incorporates filtration media found in natures aquifer systems that purify water. This resulted in our first spirit, Lightning Whiskey. We had to show the world our new creation, so we decided to enter the first competition we could find the 2020 Sunset International Spirits Competition and won a gold medal. We are continuing that journey and are excited to share it with you as we will continue to create new and exciting spirits with our signature ultra-smooth finish.
