London Bar Show 09

London's bartenders were introduced to the El Dorado story – and 8 Year Old, the latest addition to the El Dorado range of fine Cask Aged Rums, by Rum experts, Ian Burrell and Dave Broom.

The Bar Show this year, which attracted over 9000 visitors, was a huge success for El Dorado Rum.

The Rhum Room stand (bottom) created by UK distributors Inspirit Brands was decorated in conjunction with Mojo Bars, one of the most renowned bar and rum specialists in the UK. Visitors to the Rhum Room were not only able to sample the range of El Dorado cask aged rums, straight and in cocktails, but were also introduced to the new cricket bat shaped El Dorado Swizzle stick. Swizzles were served and the swizzle competition was promoted to bartenders with great interest received.
