What you'll do
The art of blending is dated back to the history of sailors and merchants. Nowadays almost all of the rum on the market has been blended. The person who is responsible for blending is called Master Blender and YOU WILL BECOME YOUR OWN MASTER BLENDER during this rum tasting. The first part of the tasting is aimed at information and tasting itself. The second part is about blending your own rum blend. We will start with some interesting information and facts about rum and blending. Then we will taste 6 rums from different casks finish (Port, Sherry, Scotch whisky, Bourbon, Cognac). During the second part of the tasting, I will explain to you how to blend rum and let you do your own recipes of the blend. At the end, you will receive a gift - small bottle of your own blend for your personal use.
I have been in love with rum for more than 7 years and doing rum tastings for same period of time. My journey started as a bartender in a rum bar during my university studies. After finishing my studies I established my own rum company called RumMe that has been "alive" for 4 years. The RumMe is divided into several parts. One of them is named RumMe Academy - in that part, I am aimed at teaching people about how the rum is made and everything about it. I have visited rum (and also others) distilleries in Cuba, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Australia, England, Canary Islands, Philippines and I am going to discover more. I have Certificate in distilling molasses from IBD - Institute for brewing and distilling, and also I studied Certificate at Hospitality in Melbourne Polytechnics and Bartending Certificate thanks to Pernod Ricard company.
I will provide you everything that is needed for blending and tasting. (Rum book, pencil, pipette, etc.)
