Haitian Clairin Encounters the World of Mixology
Now entering its second year, the Velier sponsored Clairin World Championship has just launched and offers a truly experiential, trip of a lifetime to Haiti to complete in the global finals. Just the small matter of the European finals in Paris…
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.
Pure Joy In A Glass!
It wasn’t that long ago that I wrote of my love and respect for Joy Spence as Campari marked her 20 years as Master Blender for Appleton Estate – a person to be admired on so many levels. My little girl might be too young for role models right now, but as soon as she’s old enough – I’ll be telling her all about her ‘aunty’ Joy and if she studies and works hard she ‘can be just like Joy Spence’.
It’s Rum Time at Carnival Expo!
When: 13-14th May 2017
Where: The Oval, London
TheFloatingRumShack.com returns to Carnival Expo this May, setting up our Rum Education stand and furnishing it with a wide range of authentic and tasty rums from all around the Caribbean and beyond. It’s well worth the price of the entry ticket on its own and that’s without all the other wonderful fun and entertainment to be had through the rest of the show.
It’s certainly inspiring to see the projects that everyone’s favourite Global Rum Ambassador, Ian Burrell gets up to these days and The Virgin Holiday Spirit sure is one of them. I’m put off by some of the word usage in the press release, but I’m going to have to keep my eyes open for a V-Room so I can have a taste of the latest spiced rum to hit the market.
