Rum Tasting and Art Show @ The Real Jerk Restaurant, Toronto, ON - Tues May 26th!


Are you a Real Jerk Rum Connoisseur?

The Real Jerk Restaurant cordially invites you to our monthly Rum Tasting with Havana Rum Brand Ambassador Donnie Wheeler on Tuesday May 26 @ 6:30pm

We love Rum - Enjoy a Taste of the Caribbean

Havana Rum
Born from centuries of Cuban tradition, the art of ageing is at the heart of all Havana Club rum and is responsible for the unrivaled appearance, aroma and taste found in every bottle – whether it’s our youngest Havana Club 3 Year Old, Reserva, or 7 Year Old.

The “Isle of Rum”
Cuba has become known as the "Isle of Rum", due to a combination of world-famous sugar cane, a favourable Caribbean climate, fertile soil, and the know-how of our Master Rum-Makers.
The outstanding tropical temperatures actually speeds the ageing process, resulting in rich and bold flavours in a shorter period of time than in colder climates.

Join us on Tuesday May 26 at 6:30 pm for Havana Club Rum Tasting, and enjoy the Caribbean spirit of Rum Did you RSVP?
