Reviews

  • Superb rum tasting

    Jake was terrific, very friendly and with great knowledge & enthusiasm about rum. The drinks he served were great examples of the range of flavours, and has made us excited to do more tastings.

    Jake - Rum Guru

    Jake was so friendly and made the whole rum experience fun and informative. He was great considering he had an injury and soldiered on no matter what. Thanks for your time Jake and we wish you a speedy recovery!
