Rhum & Cheese tasting in Schöneberg

Leave a comment

IMG_4993About every two months, in the Schöneberg rhum shop Rum Depot, takes place a special evening combining two of the best things in the world: rhum and cheese. The boss of Rum Depot and the boss of Blomeyer’s Käse (German cheese shop in Charlottenburg) get together to offer delicious pairings.

The tasting takes place in the rhum bar next door to the shop, a small group gathers around the table, bread and water are available to cleanse your palate. The masters of the evening presents you their product with passion, explaining what they are and telling the story of their creation. Very interresting facts indeed. The pairings are excellent, you can really feel how the taste of the cheese can be different in your mouth, depending if you drank the rhum before or after.

IMG_4995We first got 5 rhums with their matching cheese, previously selected by the hosts, then comes a wild card. Mr. Rhum has Mr. Cheese choose randomly a rhum, Mr. Cheese sniffes it and chooses one of his cheeses. The result was quite good. We even got a 7th rhum with a not so good matching cheese.

It was a delightful evening, high quality products. I went home with a bottle of rhum and plan to pay Mr. Cheese a visit in his shop. And very important too: if you go, do not forget to eat before hand, in order not to get drunk.

Rum Depot also organizes regular rhum tastings as well as rhum & chocolate and rhum & cigars. I suppose it’s as professionnally organized as the one I went to so I could definetely recommand to try one of their tastings.
