Lacassine-based Louisiana Spirits LLC has secured a federal distilled spirits plant permit, which will allow the company to legally make rum.

“Our vision for a world class rum distillery in Louisiana is coming to life. The DSP Permit represents a major milestone in our overall project to bring a distillery to Louisiana. We are energized by this approval and we look forward to working with the Louisiana ATC and Department of Revenue to complete our operating license requirements,” Louisiana Spirits President Trey Litel said in a news release.
