Aanrader bedrijfsuitje Super leuke activiteit met vrienden of bijvoorbeeld als bedrijfsuitje. Gastvrij ontvangst, tijd voor een grap, gezellig muziekje erbij. Zeer gedreven eigenaar die passievol uitleg geeft. Deed me denken aan een natuurkunde les. Eindresultaat is een fles flavoured rum door jezelf gemaakt met een mooi etiket. Dikke aanrader.

Gezellig je eigen rum stoken Het was een zeer leuke, twee uur durende workshop waarin je leert hoe je jouw eigen rum kunt stoken. Je krijgt een fles met je eigen stooksel mee naar huis, inclusief gepersonaliseerde etiketten. Erg leuk om te doen. De cocktails die je tijdens het stoken krijgt waren ook erg smaakvol. Een heel leuke ervaring om met vrienden te doen.

Een smakelijke ontdekking in de wereld van Rum Leuk team en super leuke experience in kleine desitileerderij. Apart om mee te maken hoe je met kleine porties kruiden en ingrediënten hele smakelijke drankjes kunt creëren in kleine distilleer kolommen. In zeer korte tijd heel veel geleerd en een super ervaring rijker. Natuurlijk naar huis met je eigen heerlijke fles rum.
