Our definition of a holiday is rum. Our idea of a perfect holiday is excellent rum every day for many days in a row.

Aside from the Springboks winning the world cup, it seems that 2019 was a tough year for South Africans – emotionally, financially and especially for Eskom, PRASA, SAA, CSA and many more abbreviations.

That is why, at the end of this year, we wish you nothing but peace, rest and a perfect holiday. In other words, days and days of excellent rum and real people. For this reason, we are bringing you our Whistler African Style Rum advent calendar. Your exclusive countdown to Christmas with a rum-inspired tip, treat or incentive behind every date:

Having a bit of bad luck? Don’t be bygelowig. Make yourself a batch of this cocktail and forget all about it. It’s called the “Rumgria” and will turn unlucky Friday the 13th into good luck December 2019.

An African twist on a Spanish original. The Rumgria will amplify your ordinary Saturday soirée. Forget the spritzers, leave the tea in the cupboard and serve this for your best friends only. You might not want to share the stories after a Rumgria party.
