A rum do at The LP Bar

Thursday, 20 November, from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM

The LP Bar writes:

Following the success of the debut, whiskey-themed event in October, Spirit of New Cross is back for November with rambunctious tales of rum - and of course plenty of it to taste, too.

Spirit of New Cross brings local residents and the liquor-curious from further afield together for an informal evening of learning, tasting and experimenting in the world of liquor – and Thursday 20 November sees rum take the stage in the able hands of host Mark Jennings.

After his captivating performance at Spirit of New Cross presents: Whisky Mark has some arguably even meatier material to get stuck into this time around, with rum a booze entwined with the culture of the West Indies, a rich history encompassing the Royal Navy, piracy, slavery, organised crime and the American Revolution.

Four specially-selected rums will be on offer - with some tasted neat for an opportunity to enjoy the rich flavours. Snacks to complement and enhance the tasting will also be prepared for the event by the neighbouring London Particular kitchen.

Tickets are £27 from the bar or here.
