Rum Runners of the Prohibition Era
(Spirited: Prohibition in America exhibition event)

Lecturer: Bailey Pryor │Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker

Bill McCoy was the pioneer rum runner of the Prohibition era, who fueled the Roaring Twenties by transporting over 2 million bottles of rum to the speakeasies of New York and other cities along the eastern seaboard. McCoy became famous as “The Real McCoy,” for never adulterating his alcohol with wicked chemicals like turpentine or wood alcohol, and he never actually broke the law because he always operated in international waters, 3 miles off-shore. This is a colorful and entertaining journey through one of the most tumultuous times in American history, which leaves you with a better understanding of the Prohibition era and the icons that shaped it. Stay after the lecture for a tasting of The Real McCoy Rum! Cost:$10 members / $15 non-members. Please RSVP to 860.443.2545 x2129 or email us.
