Glasgow’s Max’s Bar aims to spend the whole month of March seeking the cities favourite rum.
Thirty-two rums will go head-to-head in the competition created by Max’s Bar on Queen Street with rums will be split into two categories “Dark or Funky” and “Spiced or Flavoured.”
Max’s Bar Director Zach Sapato says, ““Rum is our favourite drink in Max’s, so we’re hyped to dedicate a whole month to finding Glasgow’s favourite rum.
“Glaswegians know the versatility of rum – so whether it’s dark, flavoured, spiced, or funky – we’ll be showcasing them all! There will be lots of surprises, freebies, specials, and samples all month – ‘Let’s Rum Wae It!’
“There are going to be tournament style match-ups, tastes and swag, social media voting and cocktail specials for the whole month with brands including the likes of Angostura 1919 Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, Clement Agricole Rhum, SeaWolf Rum, Kiyoma Japanese Rum, Stiggin’s Fancy Pineapple Rum, Discarded Banana Peel Rum and Lang’s Banana Rum just a few of the brands that are taking part.”
Daily specials will feature head-to-head match-ups for the first sixteen days of the month, giving rums and brands the chance to showcase their liquid, give samples and freebies to bar patrons, and pitch for votes from customers. The championship voting will take place on Max’s Instagram stories in the final days of March – with the two winners being announced on the 31st March.
