Awesome event, enjoyed the samples on offer along with background knowledge and great selection of rums at Cuban Embassy! Jerk Chicken wasn't great, but the rum made up for it :) Jag visited The Cuban Embassy on 05 Jun 2016

Good Venue food a little over priced for what you get but sample tasting was very good and plenty of it if you go to the evening event you cant buy the rum you have to purchase it online Mandy visited The Cuban Embassy on 29 Apr 2016

Great event! Would definitely go again if it was to return. Venue was fab, drinks were great and music was good too. However I would say £10 entry is over priced as you only get one drink with that, also the food was WAY over priced £6 for a tiny paper plate and if you want sweet potatoes fries it was an extra £2.50. That would be my only criticism of the event. Kya visited The Cuban Embassy on 30 Jun 2016

Very good event. Lots of rum and free samples. Food was delicious and the music was fantastic. Great atmosphere Mosely was the perfect place to host the event due to its cultural background. Would definitely come back next year. Emma visited The Cuban Embassy on 13 May 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed sampling the different rums but felt it was a little overcrowded and limited outside space due to the large food area upstairs. Perhaps limit the amount of people for a more enjoyable atmosphere in future. Zane visited The Cuban Embassy on 18 Jun 2016

The afternoon was very enjoyable. Great food, great drinks and an incredible vibe. All the members of staff were so kind and helpful whilst sharing there knowledge on each drink. I will definitely be sharing my experience with others and suggesting they go to the next one. I wish the venue was bigger that would be the only improvement I make to the event.

It was a great night out. Amazing atmosphere, fantastic food and the live music gave it a proper Caribbean vibe. The selection of rums to try were varied and there was lots of information. Using the visiting rum in the cocktails was a nice touch that kept the party going. I had an amazing time, thank you! gemma visited The Cuban Embassy on 02 Jun 2016

Had a great night, but lack of vegetarian food options. Music was the highlight, but venue was a bit small. Overall I enjoyed the night. It was nice to try all the different rums. Chetna visited The Cuban Embassy on 07 May 2016
