The Meeting of 2 Islands with a Love of Rum for Delicious Tasting Events on the Southbank of London

Harold & Hansa Ltd, distributors and specialists of Madeira Rum, will be hosting several tasting events at Caribbean restaurant and cocktail bar Limin Southbank.

Let Harold & Hansa take you on a journey to the beautiful island of Madeira, famed for its production of exceptional, GI (geographical indication) protected Agricole rums.

On the night, you will taste the island’s exquisite array of rums in a relaxed and informal setting. During the tasting experience, Harold & Hansa will explain how the rum is produced, what is meant by Agricole rum, and why this particular type of rum is growing in popularity among rum enthusiasts.

The North Atlantic may separate the islands of the Caribbean and Madeira. Still, there will be a meeting of flavours from the two, with a selection of Caribbean Canapés served during the evening, all designed by Limin’s head chef Sham.

Sham deeply connects to Madeira through past travels and has chosen the canapés to pair perfectly with the rums you will be tasting.

Your Madeira Rum tasting experience includes:

  • Five handpicked and exclusive Madeira Agricole rums c. 25ml per serving.
  • Many of the rums are only available in the UK through H&H Ltd.
  • Guided talks introduce you to the world of Madeira rum production.
  • A selection of Caribbean-inspired Canapés.
  • Hang out and relax (known as ‘limin’ across the Caribbean) with other rum lovers.
  • Opportunity to purchase bottles at discounted rates post-event.
