Where has all the rum gone?!

Well, in answer to your question Jack Sparrow, most of it probably got shipped to Bristol in preparation for an evening of rum tasting, aptly named Rumageddon.

Held at one of my favourite haunts for a great cocktail and beautiful food, The Rummer, the event was bound to be a good’un.


Whilst we waited for things to kick off we indulged in some pre-rum cocktails and mingled with other fans of the intriguing spirit.

We were sampling six different rums, along with food from the talented Andy Clatworthy (head chef at The Rummer) that complimented each of the rums beautifully.

We were given an explantation of the origin of each of the drinks and the rationale behind the ingredients used in the food dishes. The Caroni rum distillery closed in 1998, meaning we had the pleasure of enjoying one of the last made there.


The evening finished on a high with a Rummer-oni (a rum cocktail) and a newfound love for the spirit.

A great event and I’m looking forward to the next one!
