We will be bringing that Leeds Rum Festival magic to another fantastic Venue, Grindhouse.
For this event, we’re working with Caribbean powerhouse Plantation rums. Alexandre Gabriel, the owner of Plantation, spends months every year combing the Islands for the best liquid he can find to take back home to Cognac. UK Plantation Ambassador Paul Mcfadyen will be joining us to wax lyrical about the subject and top up our glasses on the day.
Bastards Bistro are providing the menu. These Leeds locals have set up shop in Grindhouse since Spring and are no strangers to mixing booze with indulgent scran.
Included with your ticket will be:
An interactive talk with Paul Mcfadyen about the history of Plantation
A guided tasting of the limited edition Plantation rum including:
Plantation Rum Fiji 2009 – Fiji Islands 2009 is the product of an exceptional terroir combined with artisanal savoir-faire and traditional production methods.
