There’s not a lot I can add to the following press release, except – St Lucian rums are pretty much fantastic across the board, and if you’ve not yet spent any quality time with them – then you really MUST NOT miss out on catching one of the UK dates.

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.

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

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’.

"Just who is that masked macaw?"

Just Who Is That Masked Macaw?  

In the world of rum, there are far too many times when it all seems a bit ‘smoke and mirrors’ and the truth hides behind a well-constructed marketing story. I’ve always thought honesty is always the best policy, so with that in mind…

The Virgin Holiday Spirit

Bottled Holiday?  

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.
