Rum Tasting in Copenhagen
Rum is known as a part of the Caribbean islands history and is the result of the Spanish, English and French colonial empire. Sugar cane spirits are however also very important in today’s bar industry.
We at Kester Thomas have created a rum tasting experience that will take you on a rum journey behind the scenes from information about rum production to tasting different styles of rum and lastly enjoying classic cocktails from each rum style:
– Spanish Style Rum
– English Style Rum
– French Style Rum
To add some fun to the rum tasting experience, we will form teams, which will compete in a blind rum test challenge and a quiz in order to win a bottle of Champagne at Kester Thomas.
Price per person: 500 DKK
Maximum 15 participants.
