28mar5:30 pm6:45 pmCOCKTAIL SCIENCE: THE MOLECULES OF RUMCastalia at Sfumato

Event Details

Enhance your cocktail making abilities through science! Rum is one of the most exciting spirit categories right now, and this class will be a deep dive into the flavor molecules that give character to your favorite rums. Rum is produced around the world, and the techniques and processes vary dramatically, leading to wide variations in the flavor of the final product. Attend this class to learn more about everything from the tropical fruit aromas, to compounds found in rose, to molecules associated with caramelized sugar that contribute to the flavor of rum.

The class price includes a kit containing 5 rum samples and 5 rum molecules. Kits can be picked up at Castalia during the week preceding the event during our regular hours.

This class is targeted toward the cocktail enthusiast that wants a deeper look at the science behind cocktails. We will spend less time on cocktail making, and more time on the understanding the basis of why spirits and cocktails work.

This is a virtual online class limited to 10 connections, but multiple people can participate at each connection. Ingredient kits are sized to provide the equivalent of 2 cocktails to 2 people. The meeting link will be provided the day before the class via email.
