Rhum des Seychelles 

Takamaka Bay St André 8 Year Old RumRum from the Indian Ocean isn’t new – we’ve tried a few, but Takamaka Bay is the first rhum we’ve tried from the Seychelles and to be absolutely honest – had we not been fortuitously introduced to David Owens (who is working with the Trois Frères Distillery) then we may have never got around to trying it.  Well not until next month at RumFest – but more of that later.

Bottled Exclusively for Gerry’s London Old 74… 

Gerry's Plantation Rum Guatemala Pineau Cask FinishIt’s the little quirks of fate I love so much; A chance conversation on the phone with Alan at Gerry’s Wines and Spirits last April or May primed me with the knowledge that they were commissioning a single cask bottling of rum.  It was planned to be available in their fine establishment sometime in September.

Fast forward to June 2012 and TheFloatingRumShack.com is enjoying a relaxed trip to France to visit Cognac Ferrand.  Our road trip up from Bordeaux takes us deeper and deeper into the beautiful countryside that (the town of) Cognac is nestled in.  Our SatNav performs miracles in negotiating us along the narrow country roads that wind themselves through endless vineyards and fields of wheat to Ars – an interestingly named village around 10km from Cognac town centre.

Rummies on Film! 

It goes without saying that winning the European Rum Blogger of the Year Award at last year’s Golden Rum Barrels was a pretty amazing experience.  The Rum Experience has starting posting a few videos on YouTube from last year’s RumFest and award ceremony…  Well obviously I couldn’t help but wonder if we would feature!

At The Kenilworth Cocktail Lounge… 

Best Rums in the World TastingSo TheFloatingRumShack.com gets a text message along the lines of:  ‘Thursday 19th July 2012: 'Best Rums in the World' Tasting...  Allow me to walk you through ten (yes, ten) of the world's greatest rums in one evening and learn all about what makes rum tick!’

Well we thought it would be rude not to pop along and see what Robert Wood, the Bar Manager of The Kenilworth Cocktail Lounge – a well known rum fan and friend of TheFloatingRumShack.com would consider being in his top 10.
