Join us for a rum masterclass

We've partnered with The Whisky Exchange to bring you an exclusive evening on premium rum, along with a masterclass of how to taste it

Whether you’re a connoisseur or a rookie, our rum masterclass will have something for everyone. Held at The Whisky Exchange on Great Portland Street, the evening will be an introduction to some of the world’s most premium rums, as well as an exploration of the history and culture of rum, and the tasting notes to look out for when sampling it.

Hosted by The Whisky Exchange’s Head Buyer, Dawn Davies MW, you’ll get to sample six superb types of rum during the masterclass. Dawn will then talk you through each expression’s own unique taste and history. The Mount Gay Select Blend 7YO, which has strong flavours of tropical fruits and sweet butterscotch, as well as spicy black pepper and ginger, is just one of the blends you’ll be talked through. Another is Hampden Estate Rum, which is one of a pair of single rums created in collaboration with Velier, a company known for its one-of-a-kind bottlings.

Come for rum and good times – and leave with a new topic for your Mastermind application.
