Key West First Legal Rum Distillery is Key West’s first legal rum distillery since Prohibition. Chef Paul Menta’s award-winning Key West rums are aged in Salt Cured Barrels using locally and naturally-sourced authentic food flavors–Key Lime, Coconut, Madagascar Vanilla crème brûlée–and Florida demerara sugar (never molasses) to produce a rum with flavor depths and aromatic heights worthy of the distinction: Chef Distilled®.
Join their Mojito-making class! Call or stop by for details.

The Annual Hemingway Bicycle Tour
July 23rd, 2022
Produced by: Key Largo Bike and Adventure Tours
Several years ago a couple of runners started the tradition of riding their bikes to Key West the day of the Hemingway 5K race. After the ride, they would arrive in time to register for the race and run the 3.1 mile course. Afterwards they would drink a couple of beers at the race party and hit Duval Street until 4 AM. The Tradition continues.
The ride will start at 9 AM at Sombrero Beach. We will have a fully SAG supported vehicle tailing the riders for the duration of the Ride. There will be 4 scheduled stops located on the South Side of 7 Mile Bridge, Kikis Sandbar and Grill, Baby’s Coffee and the Southernmost Marker . We are charging $75 for the SAG support only. Our group is staying overnight in Key West and doing the 5K run. If you want a ride back with bikes to Marathon the following morning, it’s an additional $75 fee. We are doing a bike rental special of $25 for a road bike for this event.
