Well……this is where I make some attempt to explain why I’ve decided to write about Rum…something that has NEVER previously crossed my mind. After drinking and enjoying beer in all its forms for numerous years, I stumbled upon Rum, Cuban Rum, by chance, when I met my wife…..although my earliest experience was when my Grandad gave me warm milky coffee with a dash of navy rum to quieten me down while he attempted to watch the boxing on Grandstand of a Saturday afternoon…..so it appears that my roots in rum pre-date legal drinking age.
Fast forward 30 odd years, I discovered Twitter and online drinks shops. I clearly had a deep interest and an acquaintance encouraged me to consider writing the blog to get down my thoughts, experiences and everything in between. So here we are.
I learned a lot from Ministry of Rum, still do. I hope you have fun with it.
