Sugarhall Launches Rum Book

Calling all rum-aholics! Sugarhall has recently launched the Rum Book ($18), a journal in which patrons may make their rum tasting notes and embark on a journey to discover the complexities and joy of rum. We highly recommend starting with the full-bodied Sugarhall exclusive Berry’s Finest Caribbean Rum($24++/jigger) if you haven’t already (we hear that stocks are quite limited already!) and the slightly sweet Rum Nation Demerara Solera Rum 14 Years ($18/jigger).

When not travelling around Singapore searching for the best iced coffee, Stephanie can commonly be found checking out museums, waiting in long queues for bubble tea, and taking her two dogs out on walks.
