Back by POPULAR demand, we’re proud to host one more Colonial Cocktails event this summer with Mount Gay Rum on Tuesday, September 19. This event highlights one of Colonial Charleston’s preferred spirits, sponsored by the oldest rum distillery in the world. Can you guess what type of spirit it is?
If you guessed Rum, you’re correct! Charleston has a deep connection to Barbados and rum is a commonly loved drink! Carin Bloom, Historic Charleston Foundation’s Manager of Education, will be demonstrating a variety historically inspired cocktail recipes featuring several types of Mount Gay Rum. While you enjoy the historic drink recipe, Carin Bloom will be diving deeper into the connection between Charleston and Barbados and the origins of the rum trade, dating back to the late 17th century. Each guest will receive a welcome drink, two generous drink samples, and additional rum samples from a Mount Gay representative. Join us for this colonial inspired happy hour at the historic Capt. James Missroon House, overlooking the Charleston battery, and surprise guests with your new recipes the next time you’re serving drinks!
