Sipping Rums of the Caribbean with Stefanie Holt Sep 17

The Whisky ExchangeIn the run-up to the UK’s largest rum-tasting exhibition, RumFest, The Whisky Exchange will be hosting a soirée to look into the world of aged rums.

They’re delighted to welcome Stefanie Holt, International Brand Ambassador for El Dorado Rum, to present a range of sipping rums from around the Caribbean.

El Dorado Rum's Stephanie Holt

Although Stefanie works for Demerara Distillers, makers of El Dorado Rum, she is very much a champion of rum as a whole. Basically, if you’re drinking her rum then that’s great, but so long as you’re drinking any quality rum, it’s all good!

Education is the name of the game and to this end, Stefanie will present a range of seven aged rums. Each has its own unique style and is representative of the island or country that it is from.

The line-up for this exotic Caribbean cruise is as follows:

  • Matusalem 15yo Gran Reserva
  • Diplomatico Single Vintage 2000
  • Barbancourt 15yo
  • Rhum JM 2002
  • Appleton Estate 12yo
  • El Dorado 15yo
  • El Dorado 21yo

Sipping Rums of the CaribbeanThe tasting will take place on Monday 29 September, 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £30 each.

As ever, tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to two per customer. Tickets went on sale at 3pm, Wednesday 17 September

With a month to go until The UK RumFest returns to London on the weekend of the 11th & 12th of October, what better way to celebrate such a milestone then to remind everyone what they can expect over the weekend. With the old saying that a picture paints a thousand words in mind, what could be better than an entire Gallery to paint several thousand words from The UK RumFest 2013.

With the first 12 pictures uploaded today highlighting Ron Botran, Ron Centenario and Virgin Gorda, the rest of the Gallery will be added over the next couple of weeks showcasing other brands along the way.
