We’re at it once again. To ensure that we bring you the most authentic coverage, we’re off to Jamaica today to get the details straight from the source….
BIG NEWS! We leave today for a week of rum research in Jamaica. The fun starts tonight when we converge upon the local watering holes of Montego Bay and make plans for a rummy week on the island.
Tomorrow begins with a tour of Worthy Park Distillery, makers of the popular Rum Bar Overproof Rum. Wednesday we’ll get a look at Hampden Estate where the recently launched Rum Fire comes to life. Thursday, we make our way to the Appleton facility for a chance to see where Jamaica’s most popular rum is made and meet my hero, Master Blender Joy Spence.
The rest of our time will be spent frequenting local rum shops, beach bars and neighborhood hangouts. Yes, we’re drinking our way through Jamaica all in the name of quality rum journalism! Stay tuned for updates. This should be fun.
