Through the cigar development
process, what Karl Malone discovered
was La Aurora’s E. León Jimenes Rum
was a perfect complement to his cigars
as well as delicious on its own.
Karl was convinced that both cigar
lovers and non-cigar lovers would
enjoy E. León Jimenes Rum and wanted
the opportunity to bring the rum into
the United States. Karl Malone is the
sole U.S. importer of E. León Jimenes Rum.
We are proud Army Veterans with a love for our fellow veterans, our community, and history. We love researching historical recipes from all over the world and giving them new life, sometimes with a modern twist. Occasionally, our Mad Scientist comes up with something that is totally off the wall. It was one of these off the wall creations that won him a 3rd place in home brewing in the 2017 Mazer Cup, the largest mead competition in the United States. Our passion is to make only the finest honey wine from local Louisiana honey and other locally sourced products. We do not believe in chemical additives or flavorings, only real fruits and spices. Every bottle is numbered with a batch number so you can see where the honey and other ingredients for your honey wine came from. We believe that our money should stay locally, so that is why we buy local and a portion of every sale goes to local Veterans Charities.
Penelope Bourbon is a company that was crafted in the classic entrepreneurial tradition. Mike Paladini and his wife, Kerry teamed up with his close friend and childhood next door neighbor, Danny Polise. Both grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ. They began to embark on creating a bourbon that everyone could enjoy and love.
Both found out in 2018 that their wives were expecting. Mike and Kerry always knew that if they had a girl, her name would be Penelope. The day they found out they were having girl, a light bulb went off. Mike and Kerry decided they wanted to bring together two things they both love so dearly – their soon-to-be baby girl, Penelope and Straight Bourbon Whiskey. A company was born.
Blue Falcon spirits was founded to inspire and support my band of brothers. As a military veteran and entrepreneur, my mission is to put out great spirits that allow me to support those that are underserved in the veteran community.
