Chairman’s Reserve rum at Notting Hill Carnival

No drink captures the vitality and verve of the Caribbean quite like rum. If you’re heading to this year’s Notting Hill Carnival, from 28-29 August, make sure you celebrate with the proper spirit – and the Chairman’s Reserve Guide to Notting Hill Carnival.

Chairman’s Reserve is a blend of double-distilled rums from St Lucia, bursting with fruit, hints of honey and vanilla, and will be available at bars and shops throughout the carnival.

Plan your Carnival route to stop off at the following bars on the Portobello Road and sample Chairman’s Reserve, or Chairman’s Reserve Spiced – a rum infused with Caribbean spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
