Default Planning "Rum Tour" for 2011

Michael here from San Francisco.

Since visiting Guyana in 2008, I've been avidly tasting and researching (good) rum as a personal hobby. I'm now working with a tour company to run a 14-day "Rum Tour" across the Caribbean and into northern South America in 2011.

El Dorado (Guyana's liquid gold) was a great place to start, and a tough act to follow. Was amused to discover their distillery along the banks of the Demerrara River in Georgetown provides CO2 offgas to the local Pepsi bottling plant!

Recently had a chance to locally sample the somewhat disappointing offerings from neighboring Suriname (Black Cat and Borgoe), but was thrilled at the never-heard-of-before La Cayannese (Rhum Vieux Agricole) from French Guyana.

Still looking for another bottle of the treasured 13-year Murray McDavid Guayana Rum which appears to be out of stock anywhere in the US. Sigh.

Hope to meet some "Ministry of Rum" members at events around the country this year!
