Lyon Rum - Windon Distilling Company
Craft SpiritsEntertainmentFood & Drink
LYON RUM is the flagship spirit of Windon Distilling Company, located in Saint Michaels, Maryland, steps from the Chesapeake Bay. Founded in 2012, the distillery launched on 12/7/13 with a signature line of rums paying tribute to the rich, spirited traditions of the Eastern Shore.

The goal is to create a distinct & expressive American spirit – working to define the category of New American Rum, while experimenting with inspired (& often obscure) finishes. Every spirit passes through the hands, and discerning palates, of the LYON RUM team.
