Default Greeting from Maryland

Just found this site the other day, looks like a lot of great info and people here. Rum has always been my drink of choice and am looking forward to discovering more of the finer rums now that I'm a member of this site.

Default Rum in Maryland

I say this and thought you may be interested, being here in Maryland:
Does anyone know Rum Shrub?

I am planning on attending.

St. Michaels, MD
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) begins a new lecture ...series entitled “An Abundant and Fruitful Land: Foodways of the Chesapeake, Now and Then,” on January 12, with the four-part series continuing through March 14. Held on the museum’s waterfront campus in St. Michaels, MD, the series welcomes CBMM members and the general public’s participation, with pre-registration required.

From 6 to 8pm on January 12, “Spirits of the Chesapeake: Taverns, Tankards, and True Stories from 18th Century Maryland” will take place in the museum’s Van Lennep Auditorium and features Rod Cofield, director of interpretation at Historic Londontown in Edgewater, MD. Cofield will share his research into the history of tippling in the Colonial Chesapeake, and how primary documents reflect the people, environment, and debauchery of 18th century life in the Tidewater. The lecture is followed by a presentation from Joe Dolce, manager of Chestertown’s Imperial Hotel, whose talk about the original colonial cocktail the “rum shrub,” will be highlighted with tastings and recipes. The cost is $15 for CBMM members and $18 for non-members.

Welcome to the forums! Good to see yet another person from Maryland.

Rumgal, never heard of it but I'm always up for an excuse to spend a night in St. Michaels. So relaxing, good place to clear one's head to avoid going postal n the workplace.

Thanks for the welcome.
I've never heard of it either Rumgal. Sounds interesting, might have to check into it a little more.

Default Northern Rum Lover

During a Google search for Goslings Old Rum the"Ministry of Rum" popped up and here I am. I have traveled the World and have enjoyed fine rums in every corner of it. I also relish aged anejoTequilas as well as hefty beers. I have a few well aged German and English two seater autos for summer driving and tool around in an aging Subaru Baja when the snow flies.

My daily drinker is Bacardi Anejo a fine aged blend from Mexico.I purchase it in case lots as it is difficult to in my area. I have convinced three local establishments to keep it on their back bar (they consider me "high" maintenance). My rum closet contains the likes of Gosling's Old and Black Seal, Zacapa GR, all of the Havana Club products, Pomalca Anejo, Pampero anejo and most of the more common darks like Appelton Estates, etc. I look forward to learning more from and about the Ministry.

Welcome to the forums, it sounds like you're well on your way to discovering a lot of treasures.
The good news is that there are more rums from Martinique coming to WI next year.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
