ARUM tast­ing event is to be held in South­port each month af­ter a suc­cess­ful start. The Ex­clu­sive Pi­ano Bar, on West Street, in South­port town cen­tre, held its first pi­rate-themed tast­ing on Fri­day (Novem­ber 3).

Guests tried six pre­mium rums, and were en­ter­tained by a Cap­tain Jack Spar­row im­per­son­ator.

Guests also have the op­por­tu­nity to learn all about the his­tory and ori­gins of each rum.

Only 30 peo­ple can at­tend each event – and the first sold out very quickly.

The venue will be host­ing the event on one Fri­day of each month.

Neil Wil­son, 53, and his wife, Jitka, own the bar and said they were ex­cited to wel­come a va­ri­ety of rums to their menu.

Neil said: “We haven’t quite got a dis­tinc­tive rum bar in South­port, and it is some­thing we are ex­cited to get into.

“So far, we al­ready sell 30 dif­fer­ent types of the spirit at the venue, but there is soon to be many more.

“The first rum-tast­ing event sold out very quickly, but we will be hold­ing one each month.”

The tast­ing event will run from 7pm un­til 9pm and will be ex­clu­sive to the 30 peo­ple who are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the tast­ing, but af­ter 9pm the venue is an “open house”.

The rums on of­fer will change ev­ery time and the va­ri­ety of pre­mium rums of­fered within the bar will be con­tinue to in­crease.

Tick­ets for the event cost £25, and in­clude six rum sam­ples, nib­bles and canapes, en­ter­tain­ment and en­try to the venue and live en­ter­tain­ment af­ter the tast­ing.

The next event will take place on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1.
