Photo tour: Peek inside Cane Land Distilling Co. before it opens Saturday

After months of perfecting everything from the recipe to the packaging to the bar fixtures, Cane Land Distilling Co. is finally read to open its doors.

The distillery focused on rum, whisky and vodka will host a grand opening Saturday, May 20, with live music, food trucks, cocktails and tours, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.

Located just off St. Phillip Street near the 13th Gate, Cane Land produces “cane-to-glass” rum distilled with care using sugarcane grown right across the Mississippi River. Not only does the new label plan to distribute regionally, but it’s hoping to bring something new to Baton Rouge’s drink scene—a place to learn about quality crafted liquor while enjoying daiquiris and signature cocktails in an expansive social space.

Cane Land’s bar mixes modern with rustic touches to mimic the brand’s philosophy of using today’s best distilling tech with homegrown ingredients.
In addition to several daiquiri machines, Cane Land’s bar serves up signature cocktails designed around its spirits.
Outdoor seating includes a massive salvaged sugar tank that has been converted into a shady accent corner.

“We are 100% cane-to-glass. All of our raw materials come from one sugar mill, one sugar farm across the river.”
