Bars&clubs magazine is offering rum lovers the chance to join a new rum club and invest in a barrel of pot-distilled Tasmanian rum.

For a once-off fee of $50, members will get to participate in a barreling and aging process that will include monthly samplings and culminate in a 700ml bottle of the aged spirit distributed to each owner in 12 or 24 months time.

Not getting any younger: A barrel at The Lark Distillery

SA Cooperage has agreed to donate a barrel to the club and The Lark Distillery will provide a 30 per cent discount for 20 litres of its finest rum.

The Lark Distillery global sales manager, Ross Dinsmoor, said joining a rum club was a great way to appreciate the hard work and patience that goes into in creating a great rum.

“These rums can age for up to two years, but even after four months you are still getting a really nice rum,” he said.

After the barreling, members will meet once a month at top Sydney venues to taste the progress of the rum and sample and discuss other rums in the marketplace.
