Sep 05 - Virtual Event

MIT Club of Boston Event

This is a great event for those who are interested in learning much more about fine rum!

The evening will be led by fellow alumnus Eduardo Bacardi MIT '15, sixth generation of the Bacardi family in Puerto Rico and currently the Director of Sales and Marketing for Ron del Barrilito, an artisanal rum brand and the oldest rum brand in Puerto Rico.

Eduardo will dive deep into the world of fine rum, including a real-time tour of the Ron del Barrilito distillery as well as a rum cocktail tutorial featuring the Barrilito Old Fashioned, Barrijito (Mojito), and Sugarcane Express (see ingredients here). Eduardo will conclude the evening with a Q&A session with attendees.

No prior knowledge of rum required!
