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.

Kelly knew exactly what we were looking for, she did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. In addition, Kelly is a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customer. She treated us as a member of her family. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly affable with an engaging personality. Most important to us, Kelly was honest. She would steer us away from properties that she knew may cause problems in the future. Kelly let us know when our expectations were out of line with reality. We are pleased to recommend Kelly Dean to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business and in our opinion, if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice, as well as my children's first choice.
