Prichards Distillery

Take a step back in time, a time when rum was America ‘s largest export and the fire of the American Revolution. With over a hundred rum distilleries in New England alone, the history of America is steeped in rum. Today however, in this age of assembly line production and an exodus of job opportunities to overseas manufacturing, the words “hand crafted” and “American made” seem to have little relevance in today’s market place. Even the production of classic American distilled spirits and the trend towards acquisitions, mergers and mass production coupled with the development of column stills, could not be understood by the master distillers of yester-year. Prichards’ Rums are an accurate recreation of America’s first distilled beverage. Our rums are made from sweet American molasses from the plantations of Louisiana and distilled in traditional copper pot stills using the techniques of the master distillers of an older time. Prichards’ Fine Rums are most certainly, nothing like the rum of the tropics we have come to know today.Please visit us at www.prichardsdistillery.com

Colorful Manes and Tails

colorfulmanestailsColorful Manes and Tails was founded in the majestic Bitterroot Valley of Montana. Our history traces back six generations since 1860’s. Horses have always been a huge part of our lives from rodeos and parades, to beautiful trail rides throughout the valley. The inspiration came from my youngest daughter’s passion for painting horses. Her vivid and vibrant eye for a colorful palette canvas inspired this idea to life.

Not only will these hair extensions “add some color to your ride” but will speak for themselves! Some interesting facts, adding RED to a horse’s tail warns that he/she is a kicker, GREEN to show that he/she is green or unpredictable, and YELLOW to symbolize that he is a stallion!

Colorful Manes and Tails has been featured in magazines such as, Western Horseman, Horse Illustrated, Horse and Rider, Young Rider, and Rocky Mountain Rider. You can also find us on Facebook!
