All For Rum & RUM FOR ALL! Why To Perceive Rum as You Do Scotch, Cognac, Bourbon
Presented by The Spirit Journal
Saturday, November 8, 10:00-11:30am
Fairmont Copley Plaza: State Room B
Attendees will travel through time and space to the first rum-like distillates of Asia, to the botanical beginnings of sugarcane thousands of years ago, to the spread of Rum through New World exploration, finally arriving at contemporary Rum, today’s most versatile major spirit. Through the prism of blind tasting, Rum experts and co-directors of RUM FOR ALL F. Paul Pacult and Sean Ludford will make the convincing case of Rum’s unequivocal status as a world-class spirit to be enjoyed as one would Scotch whisky, Cognac, or Bourbon. This seminar is a genuine “Eureka!!” moment as attendees come away viewing Rum in a more well-rounded light, one that more accurately reflects Rum’s remarkable pedigree.
