Staff Picks - August 2015

Posted on 29th August 2015 by Jean-Luc

Okay! A short but sweet post coming up, this one is packed with exotic goodness as we explore the rums of South and Central America.

For August we thought we'd steer away from whisk(e)y for our staff picks so here is something a bit different – a lovely selection of rums (or maybe rons or perhaps even rhums?). Anyway these are four absolute crackers.
