Caribbean Rum Training – The Keefer Bar

Caribbean Rum Training – The Keefer Bar
August 24, 2015 Trevor Kailles

This past July , bartenders were invited to The Keefer bar to experience a rum tasting bigger than any that Vancouver has ever seen. The full-day session covered a variety of Caribbean Rums tasted both in region & comparatively across style. Attendees were hosted by the staff of The Keefer Bar & The West Indies Rum & Spirits Producers’ Association and it was one for the archives.


Some major FOMO here isn’t there?

Well, not to worry – Because the popularity was so vast for this program that they have decided to bring it back for another session.

This is a free class, for servers and bartendersin the hospitality industry. If you’re rum expert or simply an enthusiast looking to learn more. Over several hours you will taste nearly 20 rums from all over the Caribbean, and learn about the history and production of Authentic Caribbean Rum. Lunch will be provided, and anyone completing certification will be eligible for a trip to the region! Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday afternoon!

The West Indies Rum & Spirits Producers’ Association Inc (WIRSPA) cordially invite you to the third of training sessions for bartenders and industry professionals in Vancouver.

Danielle Tatarin will deliver the session of the official Authentic Caribbean Rum Certification Program which includes the possibility of a weeks training with rum producers in the Caribbean.
