Reef Rum Nights 2017

Like rum? Are you a rumhead or looking to learn more about this libation with a long history? Our popular rum night is starting again this year for our 7th run!  

The Reef on Main is hosting the 5 month rum-tasting event between now and July. Each month, guests will experience a different top-shelf rum from different parts of the world.

The best part? It’s all free.

“Our goal at the Reef is to introduce and help familiarize our guests with all things Caribbean and that should include the favourite libation: rum,” said Liz da Mata, the project’s progenitor.

Rum is one of the most widely-consumed beverages in the world, da Mata explained.

“There is a good selection available, all with different flavour profiles and terroir-based nuances that not a lot of people know about.”

Started in 2010, the Reef Restaurant’s Reef Rum Nights offer a unique opportunity. Complimentary tastings are available to all guests of legal drinking age, and a different rum brand  is featured every month.

See below and our events page and our facebook page for dates and location.

Guests are invited to book a seat, order a small plate menu pairing & enjoy an evening of education and enjoyment.
