The Rum Diaries: Take 2

So due to my dismal failure at regularly updating this blog, it just so happens that the Rum Diaries gets to pick up just where it left off – with me preparing for a South African national final of the Bacardi Legacy Competition.

You can read more about the competition in my previous posts but rest assured it’s an incredible competition – mostly made that way by the people involved. From the Bacardi team – Kevin and Richie, who get so passionate and excited about putting on an amazing event, to the other competitors who are hands down, the best group of bartenders in the country. Last year was an exciting Speakeasy-themed event in the heart of Cape Town – this year we’re heading to Johannesburg and I can’t wait to see what the team has in store!
