Join industry veterans Sherman Owen of Artisan Resources, LLC and Nancy Fraley of Nosing Services during this two-day workshop. Day one is an informative look at rum distillation and best practices for the craft. Day two focuses on the art of rum blending. Part one examines barrel warehousing practices, the effects of macro and micro climates, the creation of quality maturation programs, as well as the traditional and fractional methods of blending.
The second half of the class is a hands-on practicum. We will examine common sensory faults in rum, nose through rum barrel samples to determine readiness for blending, and finally, blend amber rum.
