Default Great Rum Makes A Great Holiday Gift

My Fellow Rum Enthusiasts,

I am pleased to announce that next Tuesday, December 11, we're presenting one of the best rum tasting events in many years here in South Florida. Here is my hand-picked list of Gifted Rums designed to make great holiday gifts for those that appreciate the very best.

The event takes place at Sunset Corners Liquor Store, 8701 Sunset Drive from 6 to 8pm. I've included a list of the rums we've arranged to taste, along with some special prices for those that can attend.

You must reserve online to attend this event as my guest - for free.

I look forward to receiving your RSVP and seeing you there.
