Similar to how dogs are not just for Christmas, rum is not just for Rum Month. As July nears its end, we take a look at ten terrific dark rums for you to enjoy now and savour during months that aren’t quite lucky enough to be officially designated as Rum Month.

All good things must come to an end, and that includes Rum Month. However, there is nothing stopping you from taking the things you have learnt during Rum Month and applying these lessons to other months of the year. Y’know, months like August, March, November, et cetera. We may not have mentioned your favourite month there, but rest assured, other months do exist.

Master of Cocktails Guyana's Not French

Greetings #MasterofCocktails fans. Trust everyone had a pleasant Bank Holiday Weekend? Did you have a cocktail to see it on its way? We certainly did…

This week we’re making a suitably tropical number, that I think we’ll call ‘Guyana’s not French, but the Melon is’ (if you were making along with us on Monday, you’ll note that I took my own advice from last week and came up with the name for this cocktail before finishing it).

Master of Cocktails I'm A Fun Guy

Right then everyone. Are we all ready for this week’s #MasterofCocktails?

We’re going somewhat off-piste this week, making a riff on the Boulevardier, but introducing massive Umami by firstly subbing the Campari for Cynar and secondly garnishing with a pickled Shiitake Mushroom, courtesy of the Pitt Cue Co. Cookbook.

The acid-umami it adds to the drink is truly wonderful, and transformative. If there was ever a cocktail for food…

Mezan Rum

We recently got the full range of Mezan rums in, and we’re very excited about them. You see, it’s rum as it should be, rum approached in much the same way a malt lover looks at whisky; vintages, distilleries, and all non-chillfiltered and unadulterated.

Let’s start out with the Grenada Westerhall 1998. It’s much like a Lowland whisky, in that it offers up that light, delicate and elegant flavour profile we’ve come to love from distilleries like Rosebank and Glenkinchie… It’s utterly beguiling. The distillery itself is based on a sugar estate which has been family-owned for three centuries, and during that time it produced both sugar and rum, though it didn’t bottle its own product until 1978. The rum, made in a column still, is known for its light character, and is much less smoky than its counterparts in Jamaica or Guyana (which we’ll discuss shortly).
