As some of you may know, the Lady Patty suffered some damage to her mizzen mast and rigging over the Memorial Day Weekend! I know, right?

Sail from Tilghman Island on the Chesapeake – Lady Patty
The chilly wind and frigid temps have me thinking about Spring and with Spring comes sailing and with sailing comes boat drinks aboard the yacht Lady Patty!
We are very excited that our 2015 season will feature the spirits of Lyon Distilling Company including their rums, rye whiskey and moonshine, depending on what Ben and Jamie release that week. Like most hand-crafted small batch liquors, the quantities are limited so the drink menu will be as they say, fluid.
If you like good hand-made Rum and love to support small, local businesses, check out their new website or show them a little love on the Facebook.
I’m going to spill a little of their caramel Rum in my coffee, join the dog in front of the fire and leave you with a heart-felt cheers.
