You will need to purchase drinks tokens to taste our rum’s, these will be available from a stand in the main hall. The drinks tokens are £5 each and our ‘100’ Rums include a mixer of your choice and fresh garnish. We think the best way is to buy a card of four for £20 and then go from there, but you can purchase fewer (or more of course!) if you like. We’ll also have some premium rums available to try for varied prices.
Have a fantastic month & don’t forget to let us know what you get up to.
