Why Trailer Happiness Loves Rum Club

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Trailer Happiness

New Owners… New Format to Rum Club…  

 
Rum Club at Trailer Happiness was an absolute God-send for TheFloatingRumShack.com when we started the rum journey – a really great series of events that allowed us to meet all manner of fabulous rummies, learn a whole lot about the subject and (most importantly) give us things to write about.  During the last few years – more and more rum clubs have sprung up around the country.  Taking rum to the masses – what could be better?
 
Thing is… There are only so many brands out there presenting and once you start repeating, then it does become a bit samey – so much so, that we didn’t bother writing up the last few we attended – mostly because I felt like I was writing the same old thing, time after time…  If writing it bores me - then what about our beloved reader?  Unfortunately, my mum wasn’t available for comment – so the truth is yet to be revealed, but I’m pretty sure I know the answer...

Stolen Dark Rum

Edgy…

The Stolen Rum team in New Zealand previously shared with us their White and Gold rums.  We have (nearly empty) bottles on our shelves to remind us of the fun times… like when a brand is new… when its getting out there… getting in front of people and being generally cool.  But keeping it up is tricky - playing it safe, concentrating on volume shipped...

Question is. Can you still be cool as you get older?

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…
