The Rum Train

Your first class rum tasting experience . . .

Saturday 13th July

The Rum Train

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! If you're a serious rum connoisseur or a Captain Jack Sparrow nut, our rum tasting experience is an absolute shiver me timbers for all!

We're bringing a Caribbean Fiesta to the Severn Valley! This is a truly unique Rum tasting experience in a stunning setting; travel aboard our 1936-built luxurious first class carriage (once hauled by the Flying Scotsman), whilst sipping rum cocktails and enjoying a relaxing day out with friends. A journey fit for any rum lover!

Your tasting experience will include:
  • Welcome cocktail to get the tasting session started and the rum flowing.
  • Tasting sequence of three rums to offer a wide spectrum of tasting notes. All three rums on the tasting menu will be served with paired nibbles.
  • Professional staff will run the event, giving an overview of each rum and answering any questions you may have as they are sampled. 
  • Following the tasting sequence, guests can choose their favourite rum and have it served as a full cocktail or drink.

The package includes:
  • Reserved, first class travel on a single train journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, or Bridgnorth to Kidderminster, on a steam or heritage-diesel hauled train.
  • Full day 'Freedom of the Line' ticket permitting travel before or after the tasting experience on our public service trains, so you can spend a whole day on the Railway, and then return to your starting Station by rail. And remember, we have pubs at both Bridgnorth and Kidderminster too!
  • FREE entry into The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley if you have time.
