When I was asked which bottle from Chesapeake Bay Distillery I would like to recreate, it was a no brainer. I remembered living near Chick’s Beach as a kid and seeing the strange poles sticking up just off the sandbars and wondering what they were. Dad told me it was an old way of fishing with nets called pound netting. That is a truly authentic part of what Chick’s Beach was and still is. I thought that representing pound netting on the Chick’s Beach Rum bottle would be a good direction to go.
This label is a tribute to the generations of hard working watermen and women who have made a living and provided for their families working on the Chesapeake Bay.
