Rompa’s Reggae Shack teams up with The Duppy Share to bring you a Boxing Day online rum tasting session with a twist. Expect reggae, award winning rum, carnival dancers, laughter, and lots of prizes, whilst at the same time attempting a world record for the amount of people on an online rum tasting event at any one time* With the focus on fun, Rum Tasting Online will be providing clients Rompa’s Reggae Shack with a selection of award winning rums consisting of 6 different 5cl bottles (or 12 shots if you like to look at it that way) plus loads more.
Alongside the tasting there will be prizes and super special guests in the audience who will be providing their feedback on the rums provided for this event. Heading up the special guest tasters is BEZ (Happy Mondays) and rum expert, Ian ‘Rum Ambassador” Burrell and Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols) alongside a host of other guest tasters.
Mike Keat (Cuban Brothers) will act as the main host with the most and with LIVE sets from Uncle Dugs (Rinse FM) and Channel One Soundsystem this is one not to be missed.

WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
We are also aiming to break the online world record for the amount of people on an online rum tasting. The current Guiness record for the largest physical rum tasting currently stands at 786 participants and was conducted by Hugo de Jesús Alvarez Builes (Colombia). The current official World Record for an online tasting has been confirmed at 100 people. This attempt is not associated with Guinness and is an independent attempt.
Over 18’s only (Age verification needed)
Please drink responsibly!
The tasting kits have enough rum for 2 people to share. There are 12 shots in each rum tasting kit.
