You guessed it, it’s Rum Time … #Spiritof Rum

Now we know there are lots of nicknames for Rum – Barbados Water, Rumbullion, The pirate’s drink, Navy Neaters and my personal favourite – Dark & Stormy, but we are bringing a lighter more exotic side to this Rum bastion craze.

So, to all you Rum lovers out there – rejoice, because from 20 July to 19 August we are taking one of the oldest spirits in the world and turning it into, quite possibly, one of the coolest.

Riding this steady current of cocktail resurgence, Rum is fast becoming the “spirit “of practicality – despite its familiar associations to flamboyant shirts and swashbuckling pirates. It might be a by-product of sugar cane but the soul of Rum lies in its expression of culture and makes this the perfect drink to enjoy everywhere, from back-street hangouts to high-end cocktail bars.

Gone are the days of just being known as the strong and potent spirit – and entre crafted aged rums which will covert even the most discerning.

Today the great old Rum cocktails of the past are returning with fresh roots as we show what this spicy liquid is most favoured for. (We think it’s worth learning some bar tricks and keeping a bottle handy for when guests come around this summer!)

Highlighting 6 Top Rum’s: – Bacardi 8Bacardi carta BlancaHavana club BlancoDiplomaticoDon PapaAppleton12.
Our mixologists have designed 6 outstanding twists on some familiar favourites.

So, put down the piña colada and standard Cuba Libra’s and let the skilled team at Blank Bar show you the endless possibilities of Rum, one cocktail at a time, highlighting how well Rum plays with others.

Come take in the soul of Rum and be transported to the streets of Cuba and Buena Vista Social Club as Blank brings Havana nights to life.

I can’t say any more – the rest is up to you to come and experience.

Remember – Rum is not just a drink – it’s an expression of culture.
