To ensure that we bring you, our valued readers, only the most authentic coverage, we’re off to the islands to get the details straight from the source….
The Research Continues
The next few weeks are going to be action packed for the Rum Connection crew. Tomorrow we leave Key West before dawn to catch an early flight out of Miami headed to St. Thomas. For a week we’ll be stationed on the island’s east coast and will be on a mission to research the rum and beach bar scene in the USVIs and BVIs. Plenty of Cruzan cocktails will surely be consumed at Iggies, Soggy Dollar, Gertrude’s, Foxy’s and many many more.
The following week we board the first-ever Rum Cruise for 7 days of touring rum distilleries, scouring island spirits shops and soaking up as much Caribbean cocktail culture as possible. We’re visiting Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico. Back on the ship, we’re scheduled to attend a few rummy seminars, but I think much time will be spent around the pool bar instead.
Stay tuned for updates of all the lower lattitude fun. Cheers!
