LETS GET READYYYYY TO RUMMMMMBLLLLLEEEEEEE
Wed 11 November, 7pm start
You've heard of the great match ups of Foreman vs Ali, Tyson vs Hollyfield, McGregor vs Mayweather....well now we have the next blockbuster match up on the cards with Jamaican Rum vs Islay Whisky!
The funky hogo of Jamaican rum? Or the smoky peat of Islay whisky? We’re pitting two heavyweight spirit producing regions against each other in a battle for flavour supremacy!
Out of the red corner, Scotland’s peat monster, Islay, is represented by 4 of its finest distilleries in Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Laphroaig & Bruichladdich. Hard hitting phenols of peat smoke await, accompanied by the kitchens umami rich, sous-vide Wagyu steak.
Fighting out of the blue corner, Jamaica brings us to funky town with special showings from Clarendon, Appleton Estate, Worthy Park & Long Pond. Watch the ester count rise along with the ABV, as we bombard your tastebuds with an array of over-fermented tropical fruit notes, all paired with the kitchens traditional, mouth-watering Jerk chicken.
So book your tastebuds ringside and help us judge the winner.
Tickets provide 8 x 15ml pours + meat platters + nuts
