Cocktail enthusiasts and spirit sippers are told to expect a rum tasting session (included in ticket price), cocktail bars, street food vendors- including a low ‘n’ slow trader, an exclusive trade only room with tasters, live music from Duo Flex Steel Band, a chill out space (where you have the opportunity to try a Cuban rum that was made to specifically to be paired with a Cuban Cigar. You can chill out and sample these two beautiful products together.), tasting seminars and a ‘Tiki Room Experience’.
The Tiki Room Experience will be an hour-stay in the VIP area, where you will get a Tiki mug (which you can keep) and a cocktail. You will then be guided through the history of Tiki and it’s cocktails and have to the chance to try some classic Tiki cocktails using close to the original ingredients as possible.
