Na­tional Rum Day

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine -

Rum lovers en­joyed a scin­til­lat­ing evening of fes­tiv­i­ties cel­e­brat­ing Na­tional Rum Day on 16th Au­gust at J. Spar­row's Bar & Grill. Hon­oured guests and me­dia in­flu­encers at­tended the ex­clu­sive evening event with Mai­son Fer­rand's Asia Pa­cific Brand Am­bas­sador Mi­caela Pic­colo's takeover of the bar. Renowned world-wide for its award-win­ning ar­ti­san rums, Plan­ta­tion Rum is ex­clu­sively im­ported by PT Pan­tja Artha Ni­aga, which gra­ciously sup­ported the event.

The evening's fes­tiv­i­ties started at 8pm with a bril­liant show­case of Mi­caela's finely honed tal­ents as a craft cock­tail bar­tender. Vis­i­tors were pre­sented with four be­witch­ing cock­tails pre­pared from the dif­fer­ent Plan­ta­tion Rum va­ri­etals. Three of the cock­tails were Mi­caela's personal sig­na­ture cock­tails, namely the zesty Spiked Cobler made from Plan­ta­tion Grand Anejo, the re­fresh­ing Ba­jan Sour made from Plan­ta­tion Grande Re­serve and last but not least the de­light­ful Ba­nana Old Fash­ioned made with Plan­ta­tion

St. Lu­cia 2003. The last of the cock­tails con­cocted by Mi­caela is the In­done­sia

72, a de­light­ful pota­tion dreamt up by J. Spar­row's bar team util­is­ing Plan­ta­tion Dark Rum. The evening guests were ef­fu­sive about the edgy and in­no­va­tive cock­tails. Spe­cial praise from Rum en­thu­si­ast Re­becca Theodora, who shared her pref­er­ence for the Ba­nana Old Fash­ioned which cel­e­brated the sim­ple elegance of pair­ing the bo­da­cious rum with the sweet fruiti­ness of ba­nanas.

In ad­di­tion to savour­ing Mi­caela's heady pota­tions, guests en­joyed chat­ting with the charm­ing and knowl­edge­able mixol­o­gist. Rev­el­ling in her role as Mai­son Fer­rand's Asia Pa­cific Brand Am­bas­sador, Mi­caela shared the com­pany's di­verse line-up of ar­ti­sanal spir­its with cock­tail en­thu­si­asts, re­veal­ing that her favourites were Plan­ta­tion XO 20th An­niver­sary Rum and Fer­rand co­gnacs.
