10 gifts for rum lovers
By Jess Sutton
Close your eyes. A taste of rum can trigger an avalanche of memories. A warming spiced rum tasted by a crackling fire on Christmas Eve, a fruity punch sipped at a summer barbecue, or maybe a birthday cocktail awash with coconut and pineapple. Spiced, dark, white or anything in between, you can be sure there’s a rum out there to fit your tastebuds.
It’s no surprise then, that rum is a spirit enjoyed by many and a gift loved by many more. I’d never say no to alcohol-related treasures.
