Sydney Talks about Rum Club
By Andrew Starke
The Sydney Rum Club has found a new home at the Work Bar and Restaurant in Martin Place, with its next meeting on Monday August 3 at 6pm.
Julian Hartley from Southtrade International will host the evening and showcase a famous naval tipple, Pussers Rum from the British Virgin Islands.
Attendees will be able to experience the famous ‘Painkiller’ cocktail, followed by a lesson on the history of Pussers and how Charles Tobias brought the brand back to life. The evening will finish with a tasting of Pussers Rum and Pussers 15yo Rum.
The Sydney Rum Club was formed four years ago by Wally Pack, Nigel Weisbaum and Phil Bayley but has been largely inactive for the past two years.
Next week’s revival will be held at Work Bar and Restaurant, Upper Concourse Level, MLC Centre, 19 Martin Place, a bar that boasts close to 50 rums from across the Caribbean and Central America.
Rum enthusiasts will need to pay an entrance fee of $10 to join the Sydney Rum Club.
The Rum Club first formed in Notting Hill, London but has chapters in various cities around the world including Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.
