Carnival Expo 2017 Featured Rums

Treat Yourself!  

To make it easy for anyone visiting Carnival Expo this weekend (May 13th & 14th 2017) who wants to buy any of the featured brands on our Rum Education stand, I thought I’d help by pointing you in the direction of each on Master of Malt. Always worth shopping around though, because of as good as MoM prices are – they aren’t always the best!

Updated Packaging for Chairmans Reserve

Chairman's Reserve

New Look, Same Great Rum!  

Ever since Groupe Bernard Hayot announced the acquisition of St Lucia Distillers, we’ve been awaiting signs of the new owner’s influence. In a reasonably informal chat before the recent Paris RhumFest, we found out that the team have been considering the huge number of expressions produced at SLD – whether to keep them on, to bring them into more of a family context and to even consider which of the local market only expressions (such as Bounty) might well be considered for export. We also heard about the packaging revision and so have been eagerly awaiting the first glimpse.

The Rum Club Interview

The Rum Club

A World of Discovery  

If you’re new to rum and want a helping hand, or perhaps you want to be challenged (in a nice way) and try things that you wouldn’t perhaps normally try. It could be that a subscription service might be what you’re looking for! Regular suggestions – an option to ‘opt out’ if you’re dead set against the next one (or perhaps you’ve already got it) – and lots more support besides.

Mahiki Coconut Rum Liqueur

This newly released Mahiki Coconut Rum Liqueur is actually pretty good – a great coconut flavour, with a noticeable rum base to it. Tastes so good, I reckon it could become a rummies guilty pleasure…

Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum

Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum

Indian Spice!  

Love it or hate it, you certainly can’t ignore it! The strikingly presented Wild Tiger rum with its orange fur screams ‘look at me’. And the team behind Wild Tiger rum sure as hell can’t be accused of being lazy in their work ethic – Wild Tiger rum is one of the fastest growing rums in terms of availability I know of. Unsurprisingly perhaps, the brand is looking to take advantage of the continued rise in popularity of Spiced Rum and have released: Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum; a Spiced Rum that draws on the fact that India is the epicentre of so many exotic spices.
