London Cocktail Week 2013 – Mezan Rum Tasting Oct 09

London Cocktail WeekMezan is unusual in the world of rum – the company buys casks from distilleries around the Caribbean and bottles them with age statements, distilling dates and minimal filtration, much like limited edition single malts.

All their bottlings are a world apart, showing off the different characters of their distilleries and even their individual stills, from a Versailles wooden pot still to a Savalle column still (and those are just from the Guyana bottlings).

This is tasting for true rum fans – or for single malt fans who want to push their boundaries! The tasting will be led by The Hide’s very own Paolo Tonellotto.

For a chance to attend, please email paul@thehidebar.com
You will receive notification of your spot by email.

The Rum Club – Mezan Rum (Sneak Peak) Apr 01

Notting Hill Rum ClubAnother month and another great rum brand is heading to the London Rum Club at Trailer Happiness. This time it’s the turn of Eaux de Vie and Mezan Rum. To quote their own fact sheet, “Mezan vintage rums are unblended rums from individual islands or countries in the West Indies and South or Central America, produced from a single vintage year’s distillation, aged in oak Barrique and bottled one cask at a time, when mature, under the supervision of our cellar master.”Mezan Rum

With a current selection of 7 rums, some of which are from distilleries that are no long in production, this unique range of bottlings are considered to be a true expression of the distillery and country in which they originate. Mezan achieves this with their promise that all of their vintage rums are; unblended, unsweetened, uncoloured and filtered through only a light gauze with no chill-filtration.

The range currently consists of:

  • Vintage Barrique Aged Jamaica Rum – Pot-distilled at the Hampden Distillery before being aged for 10 years.
  • Vintage Barrique Aged Grenada Rum – Column-distilled at the Westerhall Distillery before being aged for 12 years.
  • Vintage Barrique Aged Trinidad Rum – Column-distilled at the now closed Caroni Distillery before being aged for 19 years.
  • Vintage Barrique Aged Guyana Rum – Column-distilled at the now closed Uitvlugt Distillery before being aged for 13 years.
  • Vintage Barrique Aged Guyana Rum – Pot-distilled at the now closed Enmore Distillery before being aged for 20 years.
  • Vintage Barrique Aged Panama Rum – Column-distilled at the Don Jose Distillery before being aged for 15 years.
  • Extra Old Barrique Aged Jamaica Rum  – Is a blend of Jamaican rums dating back to 1983, which were re-casked further develop before bottling.

So head down to Portobello Road’s Trailer Happiness on Monday 2nd April 2012 from 7pm onwards and all being well, you’ll get a chance to try the entire range and learn more about this fantastic range of rums.
