The Sydney Rum Club will tonight (Nov 1) welcome a new home as its latest session kicks off at The Lincoln in Kings Cross.

Moving from its old residence at Eden Bar & Restaurant, the monthly Rum Club meetings will retain its regular format, consisting of a brief presentation, discussion and tastings of a guest distributor’s rum portfolio.

From 7pm, tonight’s session will see Cerbaco’s Mauro Ribeiro take the crowd through a presentation on a different kind of rum – rhum agricole.

Unique in that it is made only from freshly pressed sugar cane juice, and never molasses, its French influence means rhum agricole often has a flavour profile similar to an eau-de-vie.

“This is the first Sydney Rum Club session where we get to do a full tasting of rhum agricole, a rum variety that is often unconsidered in Australia,” Sydney Rum Club ambassador Tom Bulmer told TheShout.

“This is a very different type of rum for a lot of people to experience.”

Tonight’s session will feature rums from the St James and J.M Rhum Agricole portfolios.
