Seems like everyone is starting to hear about Global Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell’s exciting and innovative new venture called The Rum University. Covering the exciting news is Becky Paskin for The Spirit Business:
The five-day course, taking place in Salobrena on the Andalucian coast, will offer students the chance to gain an officially-recognised diploma qualification.
Led by UK RumFest founder Ian Burrell, The Rum Experience University will provide an in-depth programme of rum studies and excursions covering production, history, cocktails and public speaking., as well as trips to local sugar cane fields and the Pre-Industrial Sugar Cane Museum.
Guest speakers include cocktail historians Anastasia Miller and Jared Brown, food scientist Bernard Lahouse, and Tiki expert Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry.
