Most of our supermarkets here carry at least 30 rums. Obviously I have some say in what they carry as they buy most of them through me!! Unfortunately it's rare that they bring any new rums for us to sample, so I have to do it myself. Buying rum in a supermarket in the UK is actually better than buying it in a pub in the UK. The choices are so limited in the pubs, and the price is crazy as is the size of the drink you get in your glass. I usually drink real ale with a "shot" of rum on the side (usually some sort of navy rum). I have got into the navy rums recently and that is mainly what I purchased to ship home when I was in the UK. I think I would be spending a lot of money in Waitrose once a month when their specials come out if I still lived there!!
