If you like your spirits on the sweet and spicy side, Newcastle Rum Tasting is the hen party activity for you! Come to Newcastle and try 6 different rums from exotic locations across the globe. Can you tell spiced from dark, gold, light and flavoured varieties? Which member of the hen party has done the most cringeworthy thing after too many pina coladas? All will be revealed!
Rum tasting takes place at various venues in Newcastle city centre. This is a great way to get in the zone and scope out popular bars in popular nightlife areas like the Quayside and Bigg Market. On arrival, you'll be greeted by a rum maestro, who will hand out the mini rum cocktails and get everyone on the hen do swapping tales of legendary nights drinking the devil's water!
Find out how rum is made, distilled, blended and aged in a fun and fascinating way. What gives this exotic spirit its sweet, moreish taste? Did Nelson really have himself preserved in a cask of rum until his funeral?
The blind rum tasting is hilarious! Can you tell a light from a dark rum when your senses are more muddled than a Mojito? Rum has that sunny, breezy, carefree Caribbean vibe. One sip and you'll be transported from the bridges of Newcastle to the beaches of sunny Jamaica! So, what do you get for your hard-earned pieces of eight?
