One of the most popular questions visitors ask is how the name Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks of North Carolina came about. The origin of the name is a source of legends. One legend suggests that during the colonial period, the only surviving cargo washed ashore from a shipwreck was a brand of rum named Kill Devil Rum. Another version of local lore alludes to the pirates, buccaneers and swashbucklers who inhabited the area sat on the dunes drinking a liquor “strong enough to kill the devil”
In the spirit of pirate legend and rum history the idea to produce a rum right here in the Outer Banks took hold. Kill Devil Rum Distillery is now located downtown Manteo, NC in a historic building on Budleigh Street. Tastings and Tours will be available this summer. The owners plan on offering a variety or rums from white rum to dark and a spiced rum derived from pecan trees on the property. They will also have t-shirts, hats and other gear promoting the product. Kill Devil Rum will be available at local Outer Banks Restaurants and ABC stores for purchase. A visit to downtown Manteo is a wonderful way to spend your day.
