”It’s always tiki time at The Beachcomber” Evening Standard

Why we love it

Add some sunshine to life at London’s only ‘Tik-easy’ bar, The Beachcomber. Hailed as the best beach bar in London by the Evening Standard, The Beachcomber is one of only a few Tiki-style bars in the capital, and the only one to stock over 150 varieties of rum – with a particular focus on the very rare French-Carribean rhum agricole.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy an introductory rhum agricole tasting flight for two people at The Beachcomber
  • Savour a Ti’ Punch on arrival, with a brief introduction to the story behind rhum agricole
  • Followed by a tasting flight of three 25ml servings of the same rum at different ages of maturation, to understand how the rum matures and changes with wood contact
  • Served alongside one creole snack each, such as plantain crisps or saltfish fritters

Exclusive to TRULY

  • This experience is unique to TRULY guests

Description

Bringing a taste of island life to London, The Beachcomber is a tropical paradise hidden among the hustle and bustle of Bayswater’s culturally eclectic high street. Voted the best London beach bar by the Evening Standard, entering this subterranean ‘Tik-easy’ transports rum-enthusiasts from West London to the West Indies.

Rhum agricole is one of the rarest rums in the world and The Beachcomber is the rhum agricole specialist bar in London with over 150 different types of rum behind the bar, with a big focus on rum from the French islands.

Over a Ti’ Punch each, learn about the history of rhum agricole in a brief introduction with The Beachcomber’s rhum agricole experts. Then, as part of a tasting flight, sample one rum at three different ages of maturation to taste and better understand how one variety of rum can change with longer wood contact.

To soak up the rum, enjoy flavoursome and zestful Creole snacks, such as addictive saltfish fritters or moreish plantain crisps, from a French-Caribbean-inspired menu created by The Beachcomber’s resident Guadeloupe-born food writer, and author of Creole Kitchen, Vanessa Bolosier.
