With its heritage of 157 years of rum making, you can expect Bacardi to bring you a series of tasty events showcasing the brand’s premium rums, all aged under the Caribbean sun, including a very first taste of BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Diez; a brand new, premium, gold sipping rum that’s barrel-aged for a minimum of ten years, officially launched this October. BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Diez is the latest addition to the BACARDÍ range of barrel-aged rums, joining BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro and BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho.

Furthermore, BACARDÍ’s UK Brand Ambassador Metinee (May) Kongsrivilai will be on hand giving rum lovers the chance to dive into the world of barrel-aged rums, learn about the unique Caribbean ageing process while tasting sipping rums and classic cocktails such as the Mojito.

Entry into the Rum Room is free and you can sign up to their free masterclasses HERE.
