These days we are staying in London because we are attending the London Craft Distilling Expo Conference. We are taking this opportunity to receive additional training in rum production.
First we visited the Bimber Distillery where a “hands on” rum workshop was organized. At the first mention of the word rum Neven loses that ability to have a coherent conversation… of course, unless rum is the topic of discussion.
The following day we continued at the same pace by attending the “Great British Rum” master class with rum enthusiast Peter Holland from TheFloatingRumShack.com. We had met Peter the day before at the rum workshop at the Bimber Distillery, so we established a very pleasant, friendly rapport. We were then faced with a demanding task of tasting different rums, but we stoically endured it!
