Who Are We?
Elevating the Rum Category
“If I ever go missing, please put my photo on a Rum bottle, not a milk carton. I want my friends to know I am missing!” -Laurie Manzer
We love Rum. There. We said it.
You’ve learned a lot about us already. We now want to share that love with you!
As a group of friends we’ve enjoyed drinking rum for many years and over the past decade have amassed a healthy (!) collection with bottles from Antigua, Barbados, Costa Rica, India, Japan, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Uganda, Venezuela and many more.
As you can see, the rum world really is global. As we continue our journey through it, we’d like you to join us.
-The RumCask Family
Indy has been a rum fanatic from early on in his drinking life. The progression from a simple rum and coke to drinking neat overproof rum may have occurred during his first visit to the London Rumfest almost 10 years ago. Or it could’ve been on one of his many visits to the Caribbean. That moment is lost to time. His journey into the depths of the rum world has led to an exploration of unique and creative cocktails alongside the numerous amounts of neat rum that he has drunk. Indy is clearly passionate about the category and aims to help let the world know that there is a rum for everybody, even if they haven’t found it yet.
Favourite Rum Cocktail? Rum based Old Fashioned
Chet discovered his love for rum at the London RumFest of 2010. Leaving that day with a dozen (or so) rums tasted and a great many purchased he knew his life had changed forever!
Chet considers rum to be by far and away the most interesting and diverse spirit on the planet. It is steeped in history (some of it incredibly dark and regretful) but today we cherish some wonderful rums, liqueurs and cocktails thanks to the pioneers of the past 4-500 years. Chet enjoys talking to people about the rum category and he especially enjoys opening several bottles from different distilleries and taking people on a journey they will never forget.
