Marigot Bay Bar & Café to Launch Rum Inventory on National Rum Day
#BeInspired

New Caribbean inspired venue within King’s Court of Altrincham, South Manchester is celebrating the launch of its Rum Inventory to coincide with National Rum Day, this coming Thursday 16th August.
Owner of Marigot Bay Bar & Café, Dave Marsland, has put together an extensive list of 90 Rum, Rhum and Ron gathered from across the Caribbean islands, including some rare bottlings, with some now becoming discontinued.

To celebrate the launch of the Rum Inventory and National Rum Day, each tot of rum named within the inventory will be available with 10% off!
Highlights include the new range of Admiral Rodney of St Lucia, HMS Royal Oak, HMS Formidable and HMS Princessa, to go alongside the soon-to-arrive Bounty range and current favourite Chairman’s Reserve. To cap off the rums found in the original Marigot Bay of St Lucia, the rare 1931 bottlings can also be found on the list including the 4th, 5th and 6th editions.
Barbados gets in on the action with two releases from Foursquare distillery in Premise and Dominus, plus Santiago de Cuba’s Blanca and Añejo and the now discontinued Havana Club Añejo Reserva, all three hailing from Cuba.
 


Other discontinued highlights include the Dominican Republic’s Atlantico Private Cask and the original line-up from the Elements Eight range of St Lucia.
Rare bottlings include Appleton Estate’s Joy Anniversary Blend 25 Year, the rum that celebrates Master Blender Joy Spence and her achievements within the iconic Jamaican brand, plus local bottler Chorlton Whisky and his Travellers Rum bottling, one of only 36 available in the world.

An added addition to the list is an Irish Whiskey. The Irishman Founder’s Reserve Caribbean Cask Finish, a super-premium whiskey, is a rare vatting of Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskeys finished for 6 months in Chairman’s Reserve rum casks. Sourced directly from the Walsh Whiskey distillery in Ireland, it’s not available in the UK, but can be enjoyed at Marigot Bay Bar & Café!

A new Caribbean inspired venue is to open within King’s Court of Altrincham, South Manchester on July 20th, 2018.
Dave Marsland of Drinks Enthusiast Ltd has chosen the attractive leisure and office complex of King’s Court and its secluded courtyard off one of the main streets of the Cheshire town as the home of his first bar and café.

Marigot Bay Bar & Café, named after Marigot Bay of St Lucia in the Caribbean, is the creation of several years of inspiration and experiences, finally coming together to offer South Manchester a bar and café that takes you through the many tropical islands via chilled island beers, tropical cocktails and some of the finest Caribbean coffee and cocoa available.


With the walls adorned with memorabilia picked up from Dave’s travels to the Caribbean, including Marigot Bay itself, Marigot Bay Bar & Café re-creates the tranquil, relaxing experience of the bay, located on the western coast of Saint Lucia and surrounded on three sides by steep, forested hills with the inland portion of the bay forming a hurricane hole used to shelter boats from hurricanes. It’s here that it’s famous for its calming waters and palm tree lined beaches that offer a quiet escape from the hustle of city life. It’s this that Dave has re-created, meaning low ambient and traditional Caribbean radio, a focus on traditional drink serves and attentive table service.


Marigot Bay Bar & Café has a capacity of 30 seating, with a first-come-first-serve policy during its hours of operation. Open from Wednesday to Sunday, Marigot Bay Bar & Café focuses on Caribbean origins, including a selection of beers such as Banks of Barbados and Carib of Trinidad and Tobago, coffee sourced from the famous Blue Mountain region of Jamaica and a selection of rum and rhums from across the Caribbean islands, including Chairman’s Reserve of St Lucia, Foursquare of Barbados, Appleton Estate of Jamaica, Havana Club of Cuba and Rhum Clément of Martinique.


There’s also a focus on the traditional rum serves found on the islands themselves, including the Pusser’s Painkiller, known as the “Official Cocktail of the British Virgin Islands”, Havana Club’s original Cuban Mojito and Gosling’s Black Seal, the tempest in Bermuda's favourite cocktail the Dark 'n Stormy. The menu is coupled with a selection of non-rum favourites that can be found on the bars across the Caribbean too, as well as mixers such as fresh coconut water and Ting, the sparkling Jamaican grapefruit juice.


Marigot Bay itself is a historic landmark, having been the site of several battles between the French and British navies, meaning a great opportunity to focus on some of the islands favourite rums that honour the naval history of St Lucia. Expressions from the recent released Admiral Rodney range will be available to experience in special guided tutorials that focus on the aromas and flavour perception of each.
With tribute to Meimi Sanchez, Global Brand Ambassador for Havana Club and her sensory masterclass technique, Marigot Bay Bar & Café has ruled out the usual live music element seen in most venues, instead opting for low-level background music from traditional Caribbean radio stations, producing a calmer experience for all customers and releasing optimum emotions when enjoying a tipple of choice.

Our Kids Social (OKS), pioneers of family events providing ‘a knees up with your nippers’ in Manchester’s most iconic venues, has launched a programme of lunch and supper clubs, where fantastic food is paired with their infamous interactive family silent disco.

The Our Kids Social Silent Disco is the only one of its kind 100% designed for families, and the lunch and supper club events also add fancy dress up and family photo-frame, dancefloor props, inflatables and face-painters to the line-up. The OKS festival wrist-band art and Madchester collaborative murals will add further crafty fun.

Alice Giles, co-founder of Our Kids Social commented, “OKS Friday night Supper Clubs and holiday Lunch Clubs are designed to allow adults and kids alike to socialise with family and friends and centre around great food, fab tunes and good old-fashioned fun. We think most Manchester families fancy a change at meal times, so this is your chance to let the kids throw their hands up at the silent disco, whilst the adults let their hair down over a relaxed meal.



“Sitting down together, talking, laughing and dancing - bringing your families and our communities closer is what OKS was founded to bring about. Silent Beats and Tasty Treats is just about relaxed, light-hearted family entertainment, and we’re hoping for some mealtimes to remember and some dance moves that won’t be forgotten in a hurry!”

About Our Kids Social
Our Kids Social is Alice, Hannah and Jo. We are three friends with young families eternally looking for fun things to do with our children. Whilst we had plenty of options during the week, we wanted something different to do at the weekend that catered for everyone and meant having fun together as a family. Let's face it, there are only so many times you can go back to soft-play without needing a change of scene! We wanted to create a place where families could be together and all enjoy themselves - somewhere with something for everyone.

Although our backgrounds are varied in education, youth work and design, Our Kids Social represents the things we love doing with our time outside of work - the things we want to do with our kids and for them to enjoy: good music, an opportunity to be creative, socialising with adults and children, making new friends, building a community, maybe even some embarrassing dancing to top it all off.

OKS create large social family events at venues such as Manchester Monastery, Victoria Baths and Islington Mill, we pop up at festivals, host birthday parties and now are branching out into popular lunch and supper clubs
