The search for the Tommy Bahama Rumologist continues: Only a few days left to apply for a chance to win $50k and claim the Rumologist title.
Since announcing their search for the first-ever Tommy Bahama Rumologist, the official Rumologist application page found on Facebook has been flooded with thousands of fans and would-be Rumologists seeking the title. With the official submission deadline of August 22nd quickly approaching, there is still time for the self-proclaimed experts from around the country to create a one minute-long video and fill out a simple application to prove that they are worthy of the title!
“This search is extremely exciting for all of us here at Tommy Bahama,” explains Rob Goldberg, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Restaurants for Tommy Bahama. “The applications we have received so far have proven that there is a real passion out there for rum, and we believe we have created an amazing career-building opportunity for one lucky person. Not only will they receive $50,000, but they will become the Tommy Bahama rum ambassador who will work with our culinary team to develop new menu items and cocktails, travel to some of our best locations and help us promote our distinctive rum programs. We can’t wait to begin the voting process and see what the public has to say about these hopeful Rumologists.”
To enter the search, Tommy Bahama is looking for anyone that believes they have what it takes to hold and honor the title, including established bartenders, mixologists and cocktail enthusiasts. All participants are asked to create a short video (60 seconds max) declaring their candidacy and explaining why they should be chosen to be the Tommy Bahama Rumologist. A winner will be announced on/or around October 6, 2011. The search is currently taking place on the Tommy Bahama Facebook page.
