Our tickets arrived as well. Thanks Ed.

The event listing indicates that the Diplomático brand will be represented. Is there any chance that the Diplomático Rum Blanco will be on hand to sample?

Ed, I did not notice until today. The tickets are scratch 'n sniff! Mine is La Favorite Rhum Agricole Vieux. What a nice touch.

yes, a very good chance you'll see Diplomatico Rum Blanco in San Francisco.

There will certainly be a few rums that aren't on the list of rums on the event page and I suspect Diplomatico Blanco will be one of them, if it's registered with the state in time for this event. It's always something, or something else.

Hi there! I won't know until Monday if I'll be able to attend. Will there be tickets available at the door, and will the member discount still apply?
Thanks!

Yes, Ed, a great time! The folks of St. George Spirits were the very best hosts. What a nice place and atmosphere, too. Years ago, I conducted business in that very same hanger when it was full of Navy aircraft. It has been reborn.

Thank you for taking us out afterwards. I was so glad to finally meet you. As you so aptly pointed out, it was the internet and your site which brought us together for so much fun.

Thanks to everyone who worked to make this event a success. It's always nice to see so many people having a good time. I'll post a link to some pictures next week.

The San Francisco USBG rocked the cocktails and I look forward to doing more for them in the future. I just wish I wasn't committed to go to Miami as that is Cocktail Week in San Francisco.

One of the many treats at the Rum Tasting was the wonderful beverages served..

At the El Dorado table was none other than Martin Cate, who was masterfully answering questions while expounding beautifully on the history of rum in general and simultaneously serving a wonderful punch (presumably made with El Dorado...).

Being a boozer i lagged about till everyone was wrapping up and i saw Martin pouring off his punch into smaller vessels and i mooched one off of him (actually he kindly offered-- Thank You!!). i am now finishing that punch (smuggled back to So Cal in my luggage...) and Holy Moly is it even more amazing than i recall!!

MARTIN CATE MASTER OF THE PUNCH!

Cheers for the kind words, Forrest!

A great event it was- excellent turnout, a great combination of industry and consumers as guests- lots of good questions and just an overall real feeling that people are eager to get a better understanding of sugar cane spirits. Great cocktails were poured by my fellow USBG SF bartenders, the food was dee-lish, and you can't beat the setting. (Hey, it was even on an island!)

A big tip of the hat to Dr. Hamilton for bringing the magic yet again, and cheers to the whole crew at St. George for keeping all the gears oiled and turning smoothly!

Mahalo!
