Mount Gay Rum Masterclass

King's Cross Blog

On October 9th we’re hosting a very special Mount Gay Rum Masterclass at Megaro Bar.

Mount Gay hails from Barbados and has some serious heritage, tracing it’s roots back to 1703.

Sir John Gay was a respected leader and businessman who worked tirelessly in service of the island of Barbados. A friend of Sir John Gay’s, the contrarily named John Sober, inherited a then-unknown distillery and had asked for Sir John’s help in managing it. Sir John Gay took quickly to the business of making rum. He refined the distillation process and began producing a noticeably superior product that we know today as Mount Gay Rum.

We’ll be sampling three key Mount Gay Rums:

  • Black Barrel
  • XO
  • 1703

We’ll also be looking at cocktail classics and the tastings will be paired with canapés from our Karpo chefs.

How’s that for a Monday night’s entertainment?

Please note: attendees will be asked to leave all pistols and cutlasses at the door, though Megaro Bar does permit parrots.
