Bars&clubs magazine, in conjunction with the Sydney Rum Club, have launched a competition to name their soon-to-be barrelled home-made pot-distilled Tasmanian rum.
The rum, whose new-make spirit hails from The Lark Distillery, will be formally laid-down at the next meeting of the Sydney Rum Club at Eden Bar & Restaurant on Monday September 14.
Those interested in tasting the rum can buy a share in the 20 litre barrel for $50, which includes regular monthly samplings of the rum’s development and a personal 700ml bottle with a personal label, at an official bottling in one year’s time.
The rum, however, needs a name and bars&clubs magazine and the Sydney Rum Club are offering a great prize package to the person who sends in the most creative name.
The winner will receive a prize package consisting of a free stake in the barrel, including monthly samplings, a 700ml bottle in 12 months’ time, their winning name on the bottle and a fun and interactive three hour bar school for them and seven friends at Eden Bar & Restaurant, including cocktails on arrival, learning about the history of rum and Tiki culture, canapés, and rum tasting.
To enter, simply email your suggestion by clicking here and be sure to include your name and a contact phone number.
Entries close Tuesday September 7 and the winner will be announced at the next Rum Club meeting on September 14.
The judges’ decision is final and the prize cannot be exchanged for cash.
