About this event

Hosted by Christian Esser – A Connoisseur from the Tropics – as part of Rumfest 2023

Where the Warm Waves of the Caribbean Meet the Rich Tradition of British Isles

Why Pair Rum and Cheese? Pairing rum with cheese is an experience that redefines the senses. While wine and cheese have long shared the spotlight, rum and cheese stand as an innovative and exotic duo waiting to be explored. The sweet, complex notes of rum juxtapose beautifully with the creamy, savory essence of cheese, creating a gastronomic experience like no other.

Indulge in a masterclass that promises to be as vibrant and colorful as the Caribbean sunset. Join us on this sensory journey where five tropical rums dance gracefully with three British cheeses.
