You can also get to try an exciting new rum punch from Baynoir. It’s sure to be a big hit in the summer sunshine!

A couple of other fantastic brands coming are Soggy Dollar, Gold Winner of the 2019 Global Spirits Master Awards and Indonesian rum brand, Nusa Cana.

Nuna Cana is a blend of island rums, set apart by its rugged Indonesian heart, fresh aroma, sugarcane flavour and a straight up attitude.

Each guest will get a complimentary ‘Tropical Rumbull’ spiced rum, ice, fresh lime and a full can of Red Bull Tropical.

As well as tasting the rums, guests can learn from rum experts and brand representatives as they introduce you to their range, and give you inside knowledge on the distillation process.

After there is also the opportunity to browse the Rum shop and buy a special bottle of rum or two to enjoy back at home.
