After lying dormant for more than two years, the hugely popular Sydney Rum Club was resurrected at Work Bar & Restaurant on Monday (Jun 15).

More than thirty of the industry’s top bartenders and professionals gathered for a fun and informative presentation of the Flor De Cana rum range, followed by a tasting of the varieties available in Australia.

Hosted by James France of Vanguard Luxury Brands, the evening was the first in a series of monthly meetings that will each focus on different styles and brands of rums.

The concept is based on the original Rum Club from Notting Hill, London, where members each pay $20 and receive a keyring and membership card with a list of all of the rums available to try.

Once they have sampled all 35 of the house rums, they gain access to the exclusive ‘Tiki God’ selection of premium and hard-to-come-by rums.

The Sydney Rum Club joins the growing number of Rum Clubs worldwide, including local branches in Melbourne, Hobart and Adelaide.
