The Real McCoy Rum

The Real McCoy

It’s The Real Deal…  

RumFest provided several good finds for us this year and The Real McCoy rum was one of them.  The brand launched in the US early in 2013 to great acclaim from all whom tried it.  To me, it’s not exactly surprising as the team behind the brand worked with the Foursquare Distillery and have ended up with a range of truly authentic and wonderful Bajan rums.  
 
Now whilst it’s all well and good for the US to have these fine expressions readily available to them, the thirsty rum fans here in the UK need The Real McCoy team to hook up with a UK partner.  Failure to do so is going to result in me having to meet with my “man” at a liquor store three miles off-shore and I’d prefer to not have to do that…

Rum Advent Calendar

Rum Advent Calendar

The Perfect Christmas Countdown!  

I think that the Master of Malt’s “Drinks by the Dram” option is a great way of sampling something a spirit, be it rum or something else for a reasonable price, before committing to spending the full spend on the bottle.  Safety first if you will.  Master of Malt made the innvoative step to creating a Ginvent Calendar a few years ago using their drams as the daily revealled present, something that appears to have been so popular that they have a Rum one now.  In fact, no one should feel left out as they also have Craft Gin, Cognac, Whisky, Premium Whisky and Tequila versions available too.

Atlantico Rum Mexico Distribution

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Atlantico Rum

I Love A Good Success Story…  

It was March 2009 when we first tried Atlantico Rum at Rum Club (Trailer Happiness, Notting Hill) thanks to rum luminary, Paul McFadyen.  At that time it was a rum that could only be sourced in Miami, but our trips to the Miami Rum Renaissance introduced us to Atlantico rum parties, the hard working team of Aleco Azqueta and Brandon Lieb and gave us the opportunity to bring a few bottles back in our suitcases.  UK distribution was a significant milestone for us.  But even after all this time, it makes me feel really happy when I see the hard work the boys put in have now secured distribution for their lovely rum in yet another country: Mexico.
