Last Monday we had the chance to meet Ian -Global Rum Ambassador- Burrell, during a great seminar on Rum, organised by the Bar Academy, Athens.
We really feel very lucky that Ian Burrell shared with us not only part of his huge knowledge about Rum, but his great smiles as well. Ian Burrell is the man who probably knows more about rum than everyone else on this planet and also the host of the "Rum Festival" every October in London! www.rumfest.co.uk Born in Jamaica and grown up in London, Ian took us on a tasting journey with some great rums like Le Domaine de Séverin, Appletton Estate 8 years and 21 years and more! Ian also visited Baba Au Rum to check our rums, where he counted 70 of them and gave really useful tips on what rums to invest to in the near future.
To prove that we are really modest guys we took no pride at all to see the following text at his facebook wall!:
