What great fun we had with live Dixieland Jazz by the fabulous Backroom Gang in celebration of Mardi Gras!  Lots of our Planter's Punch, made with both our Manitou Passage and Whaleback Spiced Rums, was served up and enjoyed.  Lively music, great drinks, fun audience...it's all good!

Rich, creamy and delicious -- virgin or spiked.

"At Northern Latitudes Distillery in Lake Leelanau, co-owner Mandy Moseler says customers look forward to ordering eggnog made with Northern Latitudes’ craft spirits.

That means adding some of its Manitou Passage Rum — white rum distilled from black strap molasses, Straight Bourbon Whiskey or Whaleback Spiced Rum to eggnog and topping it with homemade whipped cream, grated nutmeg and a cinnamon stick."
