Rum education day Think Rum is returning next month, after a hiatus during the pandemic.

The one-day event will take place at The Trampery, Old Street, on November 8. The programme includes a panel discussion about the growing potential for the category, featuring Waitrose spirits buyer John Vine, Whisky Exchange head buyer Dawn Davies, Think Rum ambassador Peter Holland, Muck and Dunder owner Michelle Field and Milk owner Connie Cain. The discussion will be chaired by Drinks Retailing editor Lucy Britner. 

Think Rum also features a tasting zone with rums from around the world, as well as three masterclasses.

The How to Drink Rum masterclass will be hosted by Trailer Happiness legend Sly Augustin, while Holland will guide an audience of on- and off-trade professionals through the 2022 International Spirits Challenge gold medal rums in the Going for Gold masterclass. The event also welcomes Lewis Hayes, director of The London Bar Consultants, who will lead a masterclass on rums from the UK, in a session called Homegrown Talent.

Think Rum kicks off at 10.30am and it is open to trade only. To register your interest, click here.
