“CAnE Collective was created out of our collective appreciation for rum.”
Three years ago, Clinton Jackson (CJ) Alexander, Aaron Joseph, and Ezra Allen started the CAnE Collective because they believed that there was something missing in the spirits industry. They noticed that there was a lack of understanding and education around one of their favorite spirits – rum. They set off on a mission to clarify the mysteries surrounding rum and utilizing their combined 46 years in the bar and hospitality industries, they began to do just through their creation of craft cocktails. The CAnE Collective has since developed into a consulting agency focused on helping spirit companies develop spirit marketing opportunities in the Washington Metropolitan area. What started as an educational platform for rum and cane-based spirits, quickly developed into a platform of education for combined collective professional working knowledge. CAnE became a means to show their passion and appreciation for all spirits.
Today, CAnE Collective is following through with their promise to create craft cocktails that highlight the spirits they represent by way of the CAnE Mixers. These mixers were created to bring the experience of craft bartending directly to people’s homes.
