Rum is a spirit that's ever changing. From the earliest days of production through to modern spirit, technology and the attitudes of society have shaped rum. At present, rum is having a renaissance, with drinkers increasingly interested in how high-quality rum is made and how it can vary in taste. Step forward Richard Seale, one of the Guardians of Rum.

Richard has been working to change the perception of drinkers and show them that rum isn't necessarily a sweet and sticky spirit. He has championed transparency in labelling and, along with Luca Gargano, created the classification system for rum that is the inspiration for The Whisky Exchange's own.

In this masterclass, Richard will explain how he his trying to show the world the true face of rum by pouring a number of releases from his stable, both ongoing bottlings and the special editions that have recently been making waves.
