Illegal Tender Rum Co started out as just a dream, something the owner never thought would happen.

A chance encounter with a mad man for rum, Codie had the confidence to go it alone and sell all of his assets to finance his dream - To be a boutique rum distillery in the heart of the Mid-West.

This made for some difficult and exciting times as the comfortable day job he'd once had became a distant memory as the new premise was constructed with suppliers being sourced and local freight companies found, as it became apparent the Mid-West is one of the only places to charge freight on a haircut.

That did not stop him though and with all this happening he was STILL tinkering away at a recipe that would be fit for the masses.

Not just any rum was going to be bottled, Codie wanted a Rum that is smooth enough to be sipped during winter next to a roaring fire but also a mixer you can enjoy down the beach with friends.

All the while taking 1 step forward but 8 steps back with the challenges of being an entrepreneur coming with a few punches, as he wasn't one of the big boys just yet.
