This Cocktail Bar Is On The Hunt For An Official Rum Taster

We’ve often dreamt of retiring in Cuba. Sipping on mojitos and daiquiris every sunset, driving around Havana’s colourful streets in classic cars and blasting rumba from the stereo. Of course, dreams like this rarely come true. But we might have just found the next best thing. Revolucion de Cuba is on the lookout for the UK’s biggest rum fan and an official rum taster to join their team.

The Havana-inspired cocktail bar, with sites around the UK, is offering the lucky recruit a £1,000 salary. All you will have to do is sample and critique various delicious rum drinks. Doesn’t sound too much like hard work, does it?

The lucky rum taster’s duties will include: reviewing the bar’s new Latin-inspired cocktail menu, creating a social media post on the bar’s top three rum cocktails, and judging the new Revolucion de Cuba Rum Masterclasses. There will also be ample opportunity to attend complimentary tastings with all your friends.

“We’re looking for an expert rum tester to join our team, someone who loves and celebrates rum as much as we do,” said Kat Schofield, Brand Marketing Manager at Revolucion de Cuba. “This really is the dream job for rum fans, and the successful applicant will help curate future cocktails, making sure that we remain the high street’s rum paradise.”

How do I apply?

  • Email rumresidency@revolutionbarsgroup.com and include: Your Name, Date of Birth, Location and Social Media
  • Share your favourite rum and the perfect way to serve it
  • Write 100 words on why you would be the perfect fit for the role

Applications are now open, but the window will close on August 26 with the winning applicant selected on September 2. On top of sampling a range of rum-based drinks, the rum taster will also receive twelve months worth of rum and street food. What are you waiting for? Get busy writing those applications. It’s worth a shot!
