Sorry for the delay in replying old chap.

The Rum experience was exceptional. About 40 people sat through the course on the 3 days tasting 20 rums a day and sitting through some fun training.

We even managed to make a passable 32-35% distillate from a blackstrap mollases 18 hour fermented wash, with our little pot still.

Most of the info and pics are up on our website with lots of downloadable content. People might find the breakdown of rum countries and marques of interest http://www.ipbartenders.com/images/528. ... 1207560133

Here's the Rum Experience section of our sitehttp://www.ipbartenders.com/ipbartender ... ence.phtml

Any London based Vicers would be welcome at the next selection of dates. Just drop me a line

20 rums a day you say? Does that equal to 20 standard measures? (I hope no spitting aka wasting of the rum was done) Thanks for the links.

No spitting as far as I saw. God forbid! We usually serve out about 15-20ml measure of each rum for the tasting, however, my own tasting mat is usually over-flowing

Sounds very interesting. Passable you say. How so?
Spitting in the dunder pit when all eyes are elsewhere.
