All settled in @gerryswinesspirits7246 with @botranrum #cobreblend all part of @ukrumfest #rumweek plenty of samples still to go through #sunsoutrumsout a bit of a shock in Oct! Make the most of it 😆🥃🇬🇹
It’s 23c in toronto and the sun is blasting some serious rays right now!!!! It’s only appropriate for a #sunsoutrumsout post. A quick tipple of a unicorn, the Worthy Park Estate Marsala cask finish and a good book to read outside with such beautiful weather. I’m only just getting into the book, but it’s humbling to read at times. Slavery was a very big part in rum history. Plantations all over the Caribbean were maintained on the blood, sweat and tears of so many slaves. Rum is as much about history and the study of humankind, as it is about the spirit in the glass. To respect the history of rum is to pay homage to the people who kept the plantations in good condition for hundreds of years. I always like to know where the rum I’m drinking is coming from and the people behind it. Books like this one are fascinating to read. #rum#ron#rhum#rumguy#rumlifestyle#rumlife#worthypark
Smashing out amazing daiquiris at home thanks to @bountyrumstlucia white rum.

50ml Bounty white rum
25ml fresh lime
12.5ml cane syrup
Cheers, happy Saturday 🥃
Although mostly retired from competing in mixology competitions and throw-downs.. (I mostly judge now when asked)... if it’s rum, and there are a lot of young bartenders in attendance... I will bust it out and throw down to remind them that the old man still has it.. yesterday I did just that. Showed these young guns that I can still bust it when called upon. Hopefully made these new bartenders think twice about getting in the ring with this old rum guy. ;). In all honesty though, it was a lot of fun.. great group of people out yesterday! Great to take home an awesome Appleton’s custom made limited edition backpack and bottle of the recently released @appletonestatecan Limited edition Canadian only release of the 15yr. Lovely rum if I do say so!! An honour to make a tasty cocktail for Aunty Joy Spence, rum mother to all!!! Photos were taken by Appleton’s photographers who made us look good!! Backpack is great!!!! Thanks @leannetyson @gmskarz @instapri313 and all the brand team for an amazing 2 days with the living legend that is Joy!! #rum#rumlifestyle#rhum#ron#rumguy#sunsoutrumsout#cocktails#toronto#yyz#the6
These new toys arrived yesterday.
I'll post up some thoughts when I've had time to 'work' through them.
If you can't be in St Lucia bring St Lucia to you right? I've tried Bounty gold before so I'm keen to try these new releases. 🥃
Labour day #sunsoutrumsout A blend of worthy park estate rum from Jamaica and angostura rum from Trinidad. Nose is slightly funky, taste finished like an angostura. A happy meeting of 2 islands, 2 flavours and at 40%, easily sipped. Cheers to my boys in London for the new lid. @rumcask Follow them for all things rum in London UK #rum#ron#rhum#rumlife#rumguy#toronto#cityplace
