7 Things & A Stunning New Rum Bottle… 

Bacardi MMXII RumI mentioned in a previous post that Bacardi, despite being written off by many these days as being nothing special were in fact instrumental in many ‘firsts’ that at the time were ground breaking.  This latest press release from Bacardi really does summarise seven rum-making standards that I think are worth repeating here on TheFloatingRumShack.com.

Seems a shame to cut the release though as it contains a fair bit of interest.  Oh and check out the fabulous new bottle – TheFloatingRumShack.com can only dream about owning such a work of art!

Forthcoming Event: Trailer Happiness Rum Club Presents Mount Gilboa E-mail

Mount Gilboa RumWhat: Mount Gilboa Rum Club with Frank Ward

When: 5th March 2012 7.00pm

Where: Trailer Happiness, 177 Portobello Road, London W11 2DY

Apologies for the extremely short notice this one – but it really is a must for all rum fans: Frank Ward, the creative genius behind Mount Gilboa rum and (perhaps) more importantly the Managing Director, of The Rum Refinery of Mount Gay Ltd is over here in the UK and has had his arm twisted sufficiently to make him spill the beans on his own fine rum and quite possibly a whole lot more as he is also the Chairman of WIRSPA (*).

Opportunities to talk all things rum with a person in this position within the industry is a rare opportunity and shouldn’t be missed – so whatever you have planned – drop it and come along.

Tiki Wedding Daze?   

You've Been TikiedLet me take you back a few months to April 2011, to the time of the Bacardi Legacy Cocktail competition finals…  The world’s largest rum brand is focusing its not inconsiderable resources on their prestigious global competition and it’s probably no surprise that the eyes of the bartending world are cast towards the fair city of Barcelona!

This is not about that competition…

This is far cooler!

Diplomático Ambassador Selection Rum – A Vision of Loveliness E-mail
What We Have Seen On The Internet

As Seen On YouTube… 

Diplomático Ambassador Selection rumFor a few weeks after the Diplomático Ambassador launch last year in October 2011 – TheFloatingRumShack.com was happy (and reasonably smug) that we had a lovely stash of Ambassador Rum in a presentation hipflask secreted away for the sort of day when only a glass of exceptional rum will do…  Unfortunately (and I mean heartbreakingly so) it turned out that the hipflask had a slim risk of contamination about it and (with much sadness) we had to run that fine booze down the plug hole!

What We Are Saying

…Or “Is This A Dead Parrot I See Before Me?” 

Keep Calm and Tiki On!Ladies and Gentlemen, given the recent “Tiki is Dead!” comment headlining a BarLifeUK article on the new LCC bar and then Dan ‘Bitters & Twisted’ Priseman’s reprise: “Tiki’s dead? I don’t think so!” I couldn’t help but offer up my two cents, because I think the UK Tiki scene is vibrant and growing.  I view the drinks industry from the eye of the consumer and I’m looking for quality inclusivity for all, not elitist exclusivity.
