THE RUM MASTERS 2016 RESULTS

In February 2016 The Spirits Business staged The Rum Masters competition in a drive to find and reward the finest rum brands on the world stage. Chaired by The Spirits Business and a panel of leading spirits specialists, the rums will be judged in a blind tasting, to discover the Rum Masters of 2016. Excellence will be recognized by category, age and design and packaging.


2016 Rum Masters
     There were three teams of judges from all over Great Britan.  No tempting was required for our rum experts, who gathered at Rum Kitchen Notting Hill with eager palates. So expansive was the tasting that our judges were split into three teams to tackle the line-up.
     The first team, chaired by Jamie Kimber, bar manager of Trailer Happiness, comprised Alex Knight, head bartender of The Truscott Cellar; Lewis Hayes, owner of Merchant House; and Martin Hughes, assistant general manager of Rocket Restaurant.
     The second team, chaired by Georgi Radev, bar manager of Mahiki, tackled a flight of White Premium rums.  Chris Gutierrez, account manager of Spirit Cartel; Peter Holland, co-founder of The Floating Rum Shack; and Alex Wolpert, founder of East London Liquor Company found “a few very interesting rums” amongst the offering.
     The third team was made up of Roger Barnes, director of Spirits Elite; Miguel A. Hernandez, beverage manager of Engawa Restaurant; Alessio Franzese, bar manager of Rum and Sugar; and Gareth Bell, bar manager of Rum Kitchen Notting Hill. Chairing was Melita Kiely, senior staff writer at The Spirits Business. The group rounded off the white rums with a flight of super-premium expressions.
