It’s a dark ‘n stormy day when the rum runs out, but lucky for all of us there will be plenty to go around on August 16. On that day, we will pay tribute to the currency of the Caribbean as we celebrate International Rum Day. It actually makes sense why the rum’s always gone — it’s a delicious spirit that springs from swaying palm trees and sugar white sand. The earliest rum distilling companies can be traced back to the 1600s, when sugarcane was cultivated and its by-products were used to create the drink.
Thanks to British exploration, rum runners, and new economic trade routes, rum took the new world by hurricane. It was made famous by both pirates and the British Royal Navy, and remains a mainstay cocktail base to this day.
On the 16 August, The Bar at 15 Stamford, sponsored by 6 brands: Bacardi, Drink Fellas, Distilled, Remy Cointreau, Proof and Company and Edrington, will be serving up endless round of rums in both glass and bottles.
Besides these 6 brands, The Bar at 15 Stamford will also be serving their star of evening – Kempinski Plantation Ru Guatemala XO! Join us on the 16 August to enjoy this drink without the threat of scurvy!
