The Re-emergence of Rum
The emergence of rum as an outstanding spirit is being driven by all of us—knowledgeable consumers, bartenders and distillers. The excitement is palpable as low expectations for rum are rapidly being left behind. So how are we working with and drinking rum differently now that tomorrow is finally here? Boston’s Misty Kalkofen will moderate a panel of industry experts (Charles Joly, David Wondrich, Joaquin Simo, Maggie Campbell and Wayne Curtis) as they discuss the many elements of rum’s recent progression including:
– The elevation of rum distilling practices and what this means for the category
– How bartenders present rum to the public ranging from traditional and tiki to classic and new cocktails
– How the educated consumer is accelerating everything.
