Rum Tasting! 2018

When Marcos Pilavakis of Instagram's @RumInterest came to us with the brilliant idea of putting together a Diplomático Rum tasting event to raise funds we never imagined it would be this big and successful!

It was an amazing day where we came together as a community, showed that we cared about our country, and are proud of who we are and of our wonderful products: rum and chocolate.

‍We raised the staggering amount of £7200 which will allow us to send about 3/4 ton of medical supplies to the Venezuelan people who need it most.

We would like to thank Marcos of Rum Interest who poured his heart into making this event happen. To Jon Lister and his amazing Speciality Brands Ltd crew. He led us into the magical world of Diplomático with great flare and charisma. His crew served countless delicious cocktails and always wore a smile on their face.

Also to Juan Diego Franceschi of Chocolates Franceschi, for sharing his family's story, and delivering a great masterclass with the help of Jonas Rosales. We are very grateful to Dj Xera Vera and Dj Hernan Atencio for the tunes and to Luzmira Zerpa for her beautiful voice. To Liqui-Liqui London and Papelón Venezuelan Street Food for serving up the best Venezuelan food! And of course, thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who are the heart and soul of Healing Venezuela.
But most of all thank you to all of you who came and supported us.
