sweet!

what we really need is a calendar listing the national rum days of each nation, so we can schedule appropriate observances...

I'd like to propose that with a little effort, *every day* can be National Rum Day.

Just one day?

How would you like to do it again with SEVEN days?

http://www.rumcruise.com/

This november! Seven days, Five Distilleries, and a built in designated driver!


November not in the cards?

Then head down to Miami in April for Rum Renaissance April 15 through the 22. http://rumrenaissance.com/

Looks like Hukilau and Rum Renaissance are going to be held concurrently. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

All right...here it is...again...and it's called...

National Rum Day 2012!

August 16th 2012.

Esquire has a write-up, including a pretty decent "Rum Guide". Includes references to Smuggler's Cove and PKNY as well as some respectable drink recipes:
