Joint Distillers and Marketors Livery Panel Event


The Masters of the Livery Companies of the Distillers and Marketors invite you to attend a wonderful evening on 2nd November at HMS President in London, a stunning shore-based venue, with a specially assembled panel of experts to consider if 2023 is rum's time to shine.

The panel will be chaired by David Wethey, a published author and expert in Marketing, who returns to reprise his expert controlling-role, to this time over-see:

Steve Wilson — CEO/Owner Cockspur Rum Company, Barbados

Geoff Robinson — Global Ambassador, Santa Teresa Rum

David Elmer — Rum Aficionado

Andrew Watson — Founder/Owner, Ripping Yarns Distillery, Surrey

Commencing at 6.00pm, with a steel band welcoming you to HMS President, you will have time to greet friends and find a seat. The event will get under way at 6.30pm sharp. The Masters of the two Companies — Chris Porter and Trevor Brignall — will set the scene and context for the evening for our respective Liveries.

The panel then, with complete audience interaction in the intimate surroundings of HMS President, will get into the meat of the subject — and conclude just before 8pm. A complimentary rum cocktail bar, provided by Cockspur, Santa Teresa and Hattiers rums, with wines for those who prefer and Venezuelan street food canapés too, will allow a well-lubricated continuation of the subject matters raised amongst friends in a highly convivial atmosphere. Doors close at 9pm.

Tickets will be priced at £32 and are available through the EventBrite link below. You may bring guests with you to this prestigious event. Numbers are limited so you are advised to book early.

This event is only open to Freemen and Liverymen of the Distillers and Marketors Company.  To book please contact the Clerk's office.
