An Interview with Karen Hoskin - Montanya Distillers by the fat rum pirateAn Interview with Karen Hoskin – Montanya Distilers. The World Wide Web throws up all kinds of opportunities for a blogger. So here I am compiling an interview with none other than Karen Hoskin of Montanya Distillers, Colorado in the US of A.

I’ve been friendly with the RumCask lads since the Manchester Rum Festival in 2017 where I met Indy. I had briefly met them previously at London Rumfest but discussions had been in larger groups rather than speaking to them on a more personal level. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

An Interview with Dave Marsland – Manchester Rum Festival

.An Interview with Dave Marsland - Manchester Rum Festival the fat rum pirateAn Interview with Dave Marsland – Manchester Rum Festival. Much like Peter Holland I could have put any number of monikers after Dave’s name..

I am producing this interview series to try and keep people who are doing good things in the Rum World, in the public view.

It’s easy for me to remain in the spotlight as I blog regularly. Unfortunately most people actually working in the industry don’t have time to blog. Some aren’t able to work or have had their livelihoods disrupted considerably during these worrying times. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
