In collaboration with The Rum Cartel, Caribbean restaurant Lime House is hosting The World’s Rarest Rums, a pop-up rum tasting from 6-9 November 2020.
Rum lovers, take note. Caribbean restaurant and bar Lime House is partnering The Rum Cartel for The World’s Rarest Rums, a one weekend-only rum pop-up featuring over 50 special rums, including some of the world’s hard-to-find rum expressions. The event will showcase around 30 rare rums of both official bottlings and those from independent bottlers – including ones from closed Trinidadan distillery Caroni, highly acclaimed Jamaican rum makers Hampden, and family-run boutique producer Neisson from Martinique. Many of these rums come from the private collections of members of The Rum Cartel, a Singapore-based, members-only social club built around the discovery and appreciation of the world’s finest and rarest rums.
The rums are available by the dram, with some offered as part of a tasting flight as well. If you’re a fan of Caroni, you can expect to try around 20 different Caroni expressions, including those that were bottled by Habitation Velier as well as the limited edition single cask Music! range specially bottled for Polish wealth management company Wealth Solutions. Those who are adventurous can put together their own rum tasting flight from the 1423 Single Barrel Selection menu at $75 for a sampler flight of three rums and a welcome drink.
Fans of Nicaragua’s Flor de Caña would love the Flor de Caña 130th Anniversary 20YO Rum, also available by the dram.
Looking to explore different terroir and styles? There’s a tasting flight featuring four rums from Italian independent bottler Moon Import which lets you compare rums from Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad.
Caribbean-inspired bites are available from Lime House.
The World’s Rarest Rums pop-up runs across four days from Friday 6 November to Monday 9 November 6pm to 10.30pm at Bago in Lime House. Reservations are highly recommended.
