Ahoy mates, last week we presented Rum Ho – another drinks tasting for spirited amateurs. Starting with a classic daiquiri served up by the Hoxton bar crew, and finished with a rum grog made by the guests themselves we fitted a 5 rum tasting in between.
The air was thick with swarthy questions and cask strength badinage, plus the sheer volume of knowledge from ‘Professor Rum’ Roger Barnes was enough to captivate event the most mutinous crew
The Hoxton summed up the event very well on their blog – check it out.
Mark interviews Roger Barnes, rum expert and presenter for Drinks Galore. We discuss rum, his love of it and it’s history, the characters that made it great and tease you with what’s to come at RUM HO – our upcoming rum tasting
At Drinks Galore we believe there’s nothing better than tasting unique spirits in the company of great people. We’re talking about the kind of evening where you can learn as much from the person sitting next to you as from the drink-swilling expert.

A few weeks ago I got in-depth on gin and more with Plymouth Gin’s Master Distiller Sean Harrison.
What is Navy Strength gin? Why does this former Navy man drink gin without garnish? Did he always dream of running a distillery, and what does a master distiller actually do with his time?
Find out all you ever wanted to know about how gin is made, and what makes one of the oldest gins so distinct, in this video interview.
