The Rum Collective's 'Hot' Harvest Cocktail Contest: The Finalists

One of Martinique's most celebrated rhums is about to spill out of its typical 'Ti Punch role into the realm of hot toddies, warmed punches and coffee drinks. That's right, Rhum J.M is breaking away from its historic mold. Wait, what? Aren't rhum agricoles just for making 'Ti Punch? Perhaps, but not if we have something to say about it! Just as other lesser-known spirits have come to achieve over time, rhum agricole will expand out of its traditional cocktail like tequila to the Margarita, cacha├ža to the Caipirinha and pisco to its Sour. This contest is set to expand the agricole envelope and after reviewing many amazing entries, it's clear there are many talented individuals capable of this. We are pleased to announce the following contestants have been selected to present their cocktails in a live competition at The Coterie Room on November 24th, 2013 from 5-7pm just following our tasting event. Outstanding!
