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
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.
