I have been to numerous product launching (I even lost the count already 😀 ).This is the first time that I have been invited to Rhum launching event, so it is kinda exciting for me as a blogger. Since this is a beverage product, I make sure that my body is at its best because I know there will be wine tasting ,food and drinks all around the place :D, and since I am not a minor anymore and at my legal drinking age XD (I only drink occasionally 😛 ), I know this will be a very fun event indeed.
The event took place in Alchology along Mango Avenue in Cebu City, at first I didn’t know where that is even in my very long time stay here in Cebu,lol . Anyways I just ask some vendors along there and to my surprise, it was just the one along the road, which was mall before (not anymore updated). So here I was surprised again in the registration in the Alchology Club, I was the first guest to arrived in the event (it is my first time to be first to arrived in a particular event).
It is also the first time that I have been to Alchology so it is the really new experience for me, the place looks cozy for a bar , with all the setup and lightings. The program started with the food and of course the Captain Morgan Spiced Rhum Tasting. If you wonder what is a spiced rhum, here is a short description.
Sugar cane was used to make alcoholic drinks in Egyptian times but it was not until the 16th century that farmers and workers on Caribbean sugar cane plantations took up this ancient tradition. They took molasses, the dark, sticky by-product of the sugar making process and distilled it into a harsh, strong spirit. Rum in the raw. As plantations spread, so did the tradition of making rum.
We tasted it first without the mixed of Cola (it was supposed to mix cola first), the taste is somehow sweet and not really that strong (at first). While in the tasting mode, lol. We were a little interrupted when the Captain Morgan himself enter the scene with his presence the people just excited to see the treasure chest box in which inside contains Captain Morgan items to be given away be his new shipmates (metaphor) and each was given a key to personally open the treasure test box. To continue the Captain Morgan Spice Rhum review, the taste is really good especially when we were serve with the Cola mixture which is the best mixes I have ever tried in a rhum (PS: I am not drunk here and have no plans to 😛 ). So combined with the music and the people, the party goes and everyone just had a good time.
It is one of the most fun event I have been into so far, we had a great time overall. Just a reminder again for everyone to “Drink Moderately and Responsibly”
About Captain Morgan:
In 1654 a young Henry Morgan left his native Wales for the West Indies. He never looked back. A born leader, he quickly made Captain and became famous as a legal pirate or Buccaneer, defending British interests and generally rocking the Caribbean.
His awesome exploits on the high seas earned him a knighthood and by 1680 Sir Henry Morgan was a plantation owner and Governor of Jamaica. There he lived out his final days until his death in 1688.
