Rum is having its moment in the sun. Tipped as the next big thing in the spirits world, sales have spiked, especially in the upper end of the market. As David Kermode states in the episode, lots of us have our first introduction to the drink at the other end, which might put us off trying the more premium options – and according to the host, you’d be missing out. Kermode is joined by Dawn Davies MW and Mitch Wilson of Black Tot Rum to discuss the history of the drink, its current boom in popularity, and how to pick a delicious one.

Plus, should we be wary of flavourings, and does the colour of rum matter? Find out the answers to all this and more, ahead of the first-ever Rum Show – a three-day schedule of virtual talks and tastings.
