Things to do When Vacationing in the OBX

By: Brindley Beach Vacations & Sales

When you’re visiting the Graveyard of the Atlantic and you want something to settle your nerves, a shot of Kill Devil Rum will usually do the job—especially if the rum shot is part of a tour that will take you through a distillery like Outer Banks Distilling. Nestled in the heart of the fabulous and historic Manteo, this fine establishment offers tours, tastings, and the chance to buy up to five bottles of their flagship rum. The law in North Carolina limits the number of bottles sold per customer to five per year.

Rum for All Seasons

There’s no denying that when it comes to drinking rum, there’s no better time than now. Just ask any pirate who’s sailed these seas. Rum helped them bear through the long tough journeys and the occasional battle or two. In that spirit, pun intended, Outer Banks Distilling rolled out its famous Kill Devil brand. Under this daring brand come many series. There’s the Flagship series, the Shipwreck series, the Solspice series, and the Angel’s Share series. Each series has its own unique taste which has to do with the barrels as well as the ingredients. Solspice, for example, is spicy while Shipwreck has a versatility about it that comes from different sugars and molasses.


Touring a rum distillery is a unique experience that appeals to everyone even if you aren’t a rum fan. But due to the nature of the product, you’ll have to be 21 to take part in the tour. Also, during the summer months, the tours come to a halt. This has to do with the floor of the distillery getting too hot to handle. Price of admission is $10, which covers the tour and tasting. You can find the distillery at 510 Budleigh St. in downtown Manteo. Their phone number is 252 423-3011. Tours are available between Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.
