My name is Martin and I've been lurking here for many moons and have decided that I really need to be more active and participate in this forum.
You may recognize me as the two hands with a jigger behind Ed on the Today Show
Actually I'm the owner of Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge
in Alameda, CA- dedicated to recreating vintage exotic cocktails with premium spirits and fresh juices. We juice our own lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit fresh daily and make most of own syrups and several liqueurs in house.
More to the point for this forum, we stock over 100 rare & premium rums (none of which have a bat on the label), and are always on the lookout for something new and interesting. We offer tasting flights, a monthly rum and cigar event, and more. Each February is our annual Rumfest, where we have speakers, new products, tastings and more. This year promises to be very special indeed with a few surprises.
I know I've met several of you in the past, either at FI or at Tales- I was one of the Rum judges last year, and look forward to toasting with you all again. Please be sure to drop me a line if you're ever planning to visit Forbidden Island as I want to be sure to be there to welcome you in person.
All the best to everyone!
