Will The Captain Kill The Kraken? 

Captain Morgan Black Spiced RumTheFloatingRumShack.com recently received some information on an exciting new product from Diageo: Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum.  And whilst it’s not yet been released in the UK I couldn’t help but be interested for a number of reasons.  Oh and we are trying to find out if and when the UK might see it - but didn't want to delay releasing the story because of it.

Appleton Rum Bartenders Challenge: The Karstaway E-mail

Rising to the Challenge 

The KarstawayTheFloatingRumShack.com has a lot of time for the excellent team over at Raoul’s Bar in Oxford – they take a real pride in their cocktails and it shows as soon as you take your first sip.  If you’ve not been along – then you really should make the effort as a fantastic time is guaranteed!

Head bartender Alex Proudfoot in particular is giving release to his creativity by entering a whole host of cocktail competitions and achieving some real successes.  One regional heat winning cocktail from the Appleton Bartenders Challenge particularly stood out for us as it contains Appleton V/X rum: a real favourite of ours.  We felt we really had to share, so as alex was kind enough to pass us the details of his cocktail we are able to spread the rum love!


Ladies and gentlemen… We give you The Karstaway

It’s Competition Time Again!

Plantation 3 Stars White RumWe’ve been running this competition for a long time now, but this is the first time we’ve had such an exclusive prize up for grabs: Plantation 3 Stars White Rum.

We’ve teased you twice before (click here here to be reminded) and we’ve had more than a few emails from people wanting to know more…

This is a rum that won’t be released until the end of April here in the UK and to date, only relatively few people have tried it…  We are not one of the lucky few [insert sad face], but we hope that will be rectified very soon.

### Competition Now Closed ###
