Drunk History

The fortress city of Louisbourg is offering a taste of history:  rum, imported from les iles, barrel-aged in the fortress's caves, and now available to you from your local liquor store (Ontario ones at least).  

I only wish I had thought of this myself when I was writing some of the first planning memos on food-and-drink interpretation at the fortress many years ago. 

Celebrate the historic New France rum trade. Distilled by Authentic Seacoast, at their Nova Scotia distillery, Fortress rum is matured in barrels at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton. Flavours of maple, fig and toasted oak leading to a smooth and lengthy finish. Enjoy neat after dinner or with apple coffee cake.  ($54.20/750ml at the LCBO)
