An Interview with Matt Perkins – Thameside Rum Company

An Interview with Matt Perkins Thameside Rum Company by the fat rum pirate An Interview with Matt Perkins – Thameside Rum Company. It can be very difficult as a Rum Reviewer to try and keep up with all the new rum releases.

Although, for obvious reasons the UK is not exactly a hotbed of rum production (though in fairness it has increased a fair bit over the past few years) it is a country which has a very long standing relationship with rum. We are currently only too aware of our not so proud history and relationship with our colonies and their inhabitants. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

An Interview with RumCask

An Interview with RumCask Rum Interview by the fat rum pirate ArticleAn Interview with RumCask. I will keep the introduction for this one fairly brief as the three lads that make up the RumCask team Indy, Jaz and Chet have really put the effort in when it has come to this interview!

An Interview with Peter Holland

An Interview with Peter Holland by the fat rum pirateAn Interview with Peter Holland. Normally when conducting an interview (and it has been a while) I note what their rum “connection” is in the title. With Peter that was going to make for a very long title, so instead we’ll just let Peter tell us all about his numerous roles in the UK and Global Rum Scene. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
