RedLeg to pop up at Caribbean Rum Shack

RedLeg Rum ShackA pop-up Caribbean Rum Shack is to open for spiced rum RedLeg, featuring art and music alongside cocktails.

Blavod Drinks is creating the bar in a former art gallery at 64 Charlotte Road in Shoreditch, east London, which will run from December 11 to 14.

The double-floored space will let consumers experience a range of RedLeg’s signature serves upstairs, served by the brand’s mixologist, Chris Hare. Drinks will include the Hot Rum Slap, made with hot ginger beer, hot apple juice, cinnamon gomme and spiced rum.

The lower floor of the pop-up will be transformed into a space for lovers of art, reggae, dub and live music.

Helping RedLeg complete the Caribbean experience is reggae specialist Dub Vendor, which has been importing and selling Jamaican music in the UK since 1976. Dub Vendor will give visitors the opportunity to browse their collection and listen to and buy their vinyl records.

This is a rare opportunity for fans as Dub Vendor’s record store closed down in 2011 and it now operates as an online service only.

The rum shack will host a cocktail training and creation session for London bartenders to showcase the mixibility of the rum and give staff experience of the brand. The Rum Shack will also present RedLeg cocktails in a session for the media.

Previous RedLeg rum shacks (pictured) have popped up at Green Man Festival and Brighton pubs and bars The Hob Goblin, The Haunt and The Neighbourhood Bar.
