Kilted Bear Honeyed Rum is a special brew of spices, honey and rum. Help us to bring this wonderful product to the shelves!

The process we take is protected, but you can see a hint of it small scale above. Ten years of research, crafting secrets, trial upon trial and some blind luck have resulted in our mastercraft recipe.

And here you have the lovely Nivi from the video above with a glass of the final product (I'd love to send you some with the casks, but we need to follow Kickstarter rules, so you'll have to wait for us to start large scale production)

First, the official word!

Kilted Bear is a special brew of spices, honey and rum. Blended together and allowed to rest for at least 3 months, a new and happier ambrosia of taste is created!

Using only the finest quality rum and as many locally sourced ingredients from Oregon and the Pacific Northwest as possible, we at Kilted Bear put everything into ensuring that every bottle of our product will bring a smile to your face and leave you wanting more.

Now for the personal 

I've been working on this recipe for most of the last decade. After providing bottle upon bottle to friends and various others who fell in love with the honey rum, it was decided that the time was right to take this idea and run into the "get the heck out of corporate America" sunset. Kickstarter won't allow me to offer alcohol as part of the rewards, so I've had to be a bit more creative (and hey, who DOESN'T want their own rum cask?).
I have a chance to make something that is good, that benefits the local economy (One of the reasons I love living in the Northwest. Much of what I need comes from right here in Oregon, especially the honey. Delicious, Oregon honey.....) and to bring this incredible drink to the rest of the world!

Commonly asked questions

*What is in Kilted Bears Honeyed Rum Liquor?

Honey and rum are the prime ingredients along with cinnamon, cloves and other spices that are part of a proprietary blend and process that, when put together just right gives you an incredible amber goodness with a smooth, mellow flavor and just a hint of warmth.

*How did you come up with the project goal amount? 

We factored in the cost of licensing, location, equipment and supplies. Since it takes 3-4 months after initial production for a batch of Kilted Bear Rum to be at the perfect flavor profile, it will take at least that long before we start seeing a positive income flow. Keeping this in mind, we adjusted the goals to allow for 6 months of continual production.

*Tell me more about the booze!

Glad you asked! Remember when I said "incredible amber goodness with a smooth, mellow flavor and just a hint of warmth"? That's only part of the story. Kilted Bear Honeyed Rum only gets more smooth with time, and as it ages the flavor profile changes subtly. I had the good fortune to find a bottle that had been set aside and aged for five years, barely 10 ounces left, but the flavors lingered on my tongue for hours. It was like liquid sunshine on a winter night.

*I like a decently strong drink, is Kilted Bear not for me?

Kilted Bear Rum is perfect for you! Coming in at 30% alcohol, Kilted Bear is just right for pouring over ice, sipping at room temperature or sitting on the shelf waiting for just the right moment (freezing is not recommended this can slow down the natural aging of the Kilted Bear Rum)

*What about production waste?

Good question! As a green bonus the process that crafts Kilted Bear Rum creates almost no waste, and most of what there is is 100% biodegradable!

*Where will my commitment be going?

Your commitments will help us:

  • To obtain the licensing and permits ready to begin production 
  •  To purchase the various equipment and containers required to craft and store Kilted Bear Rum 
  • First full production run of the official Kilted Bear brand! 
  •  Produce printed marketing material allowing us to get more word of Kilted Bear out there! 

Once we reach our goal, PLEASE CONTINUE WITH YOUR DONATIONS! The more beyond the goal we manage to raise, the larger the initial production run, and we have a contact who can arrange for distribution to the east coast with enough product!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Location, a unique blend of production equipment, building a client base... Kilted Bear has an uphill fight in several areas, but the product itself isn't one of them.

Thank you to everyone for helping us to pass these hurdles and bring our product to you
