Rum Ho went off with a blast

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.

Drinks Galore Interviews – Mark speaks to MR RUM Roger Barnes

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.

Roger is THE MAN on rum – ask any barman and his name comes up first.

A renowned rum enthusiast across Europe with 20 years’ experience, what he doesn’t know about rum … well, he just knows everything. Rightly respected by many industry professionals ranging from brand owners to bartenders, brand ambassadors and rum distributors, he even sits on the UK Panel for previewing, tasting and judging rums.

Naturally a man this suave is also president of the London Cigar Aficionados, where he puts on cigar and rum tasting events to the discerning members.

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing his passion and knowledge for this spirit a few times now and I can’t wait to share this with you.
