The History of Loaded Cannon

The “Golden Age of Piracy” was between 1650 and 1720.  Thousands of pirates roamed the seas, many on the Sun Coast of Florida.  Join the crew of the majestic ship “Loaded Cannon” and journey back in time where you’ll learn some of the forgotten stories worthy of being retold.  Just like those masters of the sea, in order to understand what drives us, you’ll have to meet us.  Then you’ll understand, we are truly passionate to make the best product we possibly can.  We never forget, the “best” product is what the customer wants, how they want it and who they want to drink it with!  When you understand that, climb aboard, you’re one of the crew. 

“Our spirits are not just hand crafted, they’re Copper Kissed”

Well, just what is a “Loaded Cannon”, other than the obvious answer?  Well, in our case, the Loaded Cannon is a fictitious pirate ship of epic size, unmatched fortifications and a well-disciplined crew.  They carry a cargo of more value than gold – Loaded Cannon Spirits!  The distillery is named after the ship, and our theme true to the golden age of pirates!  Our large, all copper still, is named Anney and her smaller sister test still is Mary.  Named after the notorious female pirates Ann Bonney and Mary Read.  Anney’s skills and bold flair are highlighted in our Vodka – Anney’s Blade.

The cannon is loaded, come light your fuse!

HOW CAN YOU HELP? When you walk in to a local bar, restaurant, or other fine establishment (Like your neighbor’s tiki bar) ask them if they have local Loaded Cannon spirits. If they don’t, well there’s plenty of other bars and you know what to get your neighbor for Christmas!
