Bacardi Rum Gets A Brand New Look

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Bacardi Packaging Update

Same Rum, Stylish New Look…  

Feb 4th… Bacardi Founders day… Seems appropriate to announce something big… “BACARDÍ rum has announced the first packaging update to the world’s number one selling rum in more than a decade” and in true Bacardi style, it seems no expense has been spared in both development and telling the story – as befits the world’s bestselling rum.

Two Dons, our Cocktail of the Week

A Tale of Two Dons…  

A Tuesday evening visit to The Treehouse, Beaconsfield is normally a chance to catch up, enjoy a drink… This time, Bar Manager Matthew Hastings made me his “Two Don’s” cocktail – a serve he’s entered into the Diplomático World Tournament cocktail competition – and whilst I can’t tell you if it’s going to win the comp or not, I can tell you it’s ticking all my boxes right now. Matthew was happy to share, so… Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a new Cocktail of the Week!

The Thinking Drinkers

...Everybody Needs Some Liquor To Love!  

If you are the sort of person that enjoys such trivia as the frankly staggering amount of booze that Andre the Giant could consume or the cultural and religious connections that the Mexican Goddess Mayahuel had with alcohol then there is a very good chance that the Thinking Drinkers show really will be the perfect entertainment for you. It certainly made for a great nights entertainment for us the other night.

Golden Demerara Swizzle

Swizzle It Baby!  

This week it seems fitting that we feature a cocktail containing El Dorado rum, as the sad news was confirmed that Stefanie Holt has left her position as the Global Brand Ambassador in order to pursue an exciting new position.

Emperor sized Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum

The Daiquiri

Sublime…

Trader Vic's Grog

An Uncomplicated Favourite…  

2015’s Cocktail of the Week feature is my opportunity to share some serves that make me happy, or bring back happy memories or are technically brilliant (or whatever)… This week’s one is very simple, I first encountered in when I purchased Beachbum Berry’s Remixed: A Gallery of Tiki Drinks and it’s become a firm favourite despite its simplicity.
