At Burning Barn we want to evoke feelings that go beyond the great rum that we make and inspire people to go outside and do cool stuff. We think that we can fit in at the end of a great adventure, and hope that once you're back in you might sit down with friends and tell war stories about your epics with a Burning Barn in hand. This is why we have started to compile a team of adventurers and crafts people who go outside physically and metaphorically and do some seriously cool stuff.
