Alnwick Rum

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

You Got Me at “…Blend of Guyana & Jamaica Rums”…

 
First spotted ages ago on RumConnection.com – the back plot story of Alnwick rum is interesting for sure and something I reckon you should read by clicking here  but while the marketing tags “The Legendary…” and “Spirit of Northumberland” leave me a little cold – there is no doubting that the contents of the bottle is actually rather interesting – it’s a big, boldly flavoured rum for sure!  And for the price it represents a pretty unique proposition here in the UK given this countries predisposition to spice rum of late.  So for that reason alone, I’m happy to feature Alnwick Rum here on TheFloatingRumShack.com even though I don’t really have a lot of information on it…
 
The lack of supplied information doesn’t mean I can’t indulge myself with a bit of wild speculation on it though…

RUMblin' La Mauny & Trois Rivières Rhum

RUMblin' La Mauny & Trois Rivières Rhum

We Be RUMblin' For The First Time  

TheFloatingRumShack.com prides itself as being quick off the mark, but in this case we’ve been lagging behind the times…  The RUMblin’ team have had four rum themed events in London thus far and we’ve completely failed to get along to any of them!
 
We are determined to put that right though and will be looking to get along to the fifth event (to be held on the 29th November 2012) – which will be featuring some serious Agricole Rhums in La Mauny & Trois Rivières!

RumFest 2012

RumFest 2012

Another Year!  Another Amazing RumFest!

 
Or,
 

Just When Did We All Forget Our Manners?  

 
TheFloatingRumShack.com would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Global Rum Ambassador, Ian Burrell, his entire RumFest team and to all those exhibitors involved in providing the best UK Rum Experience thus far.  And whilst I may have had a few opportunities that the average rum fan didn’t (legitimately) get, i.e.; being on the main stage on more than one occasion, there is no doubt that RumFest 2012 provided TheFloatingRumShack.com with absolutely loads of rum geek-ery, opportunities to socialise and plenty to drink... Whilst the first two points are to be lauded, applauded and appreciated whole heartedly, the third might just be shaping to be something of a problem.

Mount Gay Rum Master Class

Mount Gay XO Rum

...with Miguel Smith  

 
A perk of running a website like this is that when events like London Cocktail Week come around, the invites tend to come to you, rather than having to apply. (regrettably) We've not had the week off this time to properly indulge in all that the rum world can throw at us and we've had to turn a few exciting invites down...

Botran Reserva Blanca Rum

Botran Reserva Blanca Rum: The UK Launch Event

The UK Launch Event 

For TheFloatingRumShack.com Tuesday night was the night that London Cocktail Week finally got going. Rumours of massive feats of drinking on Monday night were politely ignored... If it didn't happen to us: it didn't happen at all!  The arrival of our rummy friends from around the world had set our hearts all-a-flutter and the anticipation had built up quite nicely during the day.  The event would allow us a few hours in the company of the team (which included family member: Isabel Molina Botran) from Ron Botran, Guatemala.
