Rum Tasting Masterclass


Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! If you’re a serious rum connoisseur or a Captain Jack Sparrow nut, our rum tasting experience is an absolute riot for all!

Rum the spirit with dark connections to piracy and slavery is growing in popularity in the UK, an 18% growth last year alone. There are over 150 brands of rum available in the UK and whilst many are still made in the Caribbean there is a steady increase in UK rum distillers. Join us at The Grange Hotel for a rum voyage in partnership with Catherine from Still & Heart. Just a stone’s throw from the historic city centre, The Grange offers a luxurious base to enjoy your experience.

You will be welcomed to the experience with a rum based drink. Then discover more about the history of rum before sampling rums from 3 different categories. Finally, guests are invited to create their own rum drink to enjoy with food.

You’ll take your two course late lunch or early supper The Ivy Brasserie. A 2 Rosette eatery serving classic food with a French influence, you’ll be served a carefully compiled table d’hôte menu. With Chef Will Nicol specializing in gutsy flavours produced with the best of Yorkshire fare, you’re sure of a super meal. Please leave up to 4 hours for the whole experience, start times may vary (these will be confirmed upon booking).
