The Duppy Share Rum – Caribbean Rum Masterclass

When - Thursday 30th September

Time - 18:00 for 30 minutes

Location - Your Home

The Duppy Share Rum Co will guide you through the world of rum, some of their favourite cocktails and what it takes to make a glass of Duppy.

The Duppy Share Rum inspires friends to unite and to escape the ordinary by embracing the spirit of the Caribbean. Duppy transports you to the warmth, joy, beauty and excitement of the Caribbean. Duppy is all about enjoying the good times, living in the moment and bringing people together.

The name of the brand is inspired by Caribbean folklore, and is the term given to Rum stolen by the duppies, mischievous shape shifting spirits, who in the dead of night swoop between the islands stealing the finestrum to fuel their crazy parties.

Duppy’s award winning nectar is a blend of the finest aged rums from all over the Caribbean. The blend includes rum from some of the most renowned distilleries, most notably the incredible Worthy Park Estate in Jamaica and the Foursquare Distillery in Barbados.

Relax with a glass of Duppy with friends and family and share the spirit of the Caribbean, whilst you are guided through the world of rum and everything Duppy.

An evening with Bumbu Rum - Virtual Tasting and Cocktail Masterclass

When - Thursday 30th September

Time - 18:30 for 30 minutes

Location - Your Home

Enter the world of Bumbu Rum - an authentic Caribbean legend.

Immerse yourself in the story of Bumbu Rum and get inspired by this multi-award winning spirit. Bumbu is an exquisite, all-natural craft rum made with native Caribbean ingredients and is based on a recipe brought back from the 16th and 17th century where sailors and merchants added fruits and spices to their rums and called it “Bumbu”.

Handcrafted in small batches at a historic distillery in Barbados, Bumbu Rum is distilled using the world’s purest water, naturally filtered through Barbados’s coral limestone, blended with eight unique sugarcanes and then aged for up to 15 years. This creates an effortlessly smooth and balanced rum that has both complexity and depth.

Awarded five gold medals in two years from the LA International Spirits competition, Bumbu Rum is now the world's most decorated Rum.

Sophie Lawrence, Marketing Director, and Collette Gibson, Sales Manager for Sovereign Brands, will introduce you to Bumbu, a rum which redefines the category. With a combined industry experience of 15 years, interestingly, neither were rum drinkers until they tasted Bumbu. “I don’t drink rum, but I drink Bumbu” is a statement that’s testament to Bumbu’s appeal. Bumbu is a rum that appeals to cocktail lovers, connoisseurs, sippers, aficionados and everything in between.

Black Tears Dry Spiced – The World’s First Dry Spiced Cuban Rum

When - Friday 1st October

Time - 18:30 for 30 minutes

Location - Your Home

Join us as we take you through the history and culture of Cuba with Black Tears Dry Spiced.

Cuba is a unique island with ties to the very early days of rum production. This session is dedicated to exploring the country’s wonderfully rich history by understanding the world’s first dry spiced Cuban rum - Black Tears Dry Spiced. With just three spices added, all of which are indigenous to Cuba, this is truly a unique product which will change your perception of what spiced rum products can be. The history of Cuban cacao and coffee is as long and rich as Cuban rum itself and Aji Dulce is a sweet bell pepper used throughout Cuban cooking. We will start you off with a Cuban tradition to get you in the mood, before pouring a long cocktail of Tears ‘n’ Tonic. While discussing the deep rooted history of Cuba and how this product came to be, we will finish off the session with one of the best twists on a classic cocktail - The Espresso Rum-Tini.

Peter Thornton is the UK and Northern Europe Brand Ambassador for Black Tears Dry Spiced. Following a bartending career spanning 25 years, and close to 11 years immersed in the rum world, Peter joined The Island Rum Co. in December 2019 to develop their portfolio including the Black Tears Dry Spiced Rum brand.
