How do the tasting sessions work?
The tasting sessions are in addition to the main rum festival, each session is a sit-down, private tasting with a master blender or expert who will guide you through what’s in your glass and introduce you to a new way of looking at it. An excellent way to broaden your knowledge and try some things that aren’t on the main tasting floor.

What’s the secret Tiki Room?
It’s a secret… but we can tell you that we have some of the most exciting Tiki bartenders joining us to whisk you off to a little Polynesian paradise, watch this space for more info!
