Mixology Class with Privateer Rum

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Our friends at Privateer Rum, born and raised in Ipswitch Mass (ahoy!), are hosting a special mixology series this winter to warm your soul and invigorate your mind with rum knowledge.

In these classes, we'll put a spin on three classic cocktails using Privateer Rum varieties. Join us to learn the science of distilling, how to easily pair flavors, and ​replicate the results at home. Let Privateer Rum walk you through each cocktail; you’ll learn all about ingredients, necessary tools, and simple tweaks to update classic recipes. And finally, you’ll work in teams to practice making all three cocktails and will sample your creations!

January, February, and March Cocktails:

  • Palmetto: A Privateer riff on a classic manhattan
  • Cranberry Collins: Sweet and tangy with a New England twist
  • New England Daiquiri: A classic swapped with local flavors

Along with the cocktails we will also provide a local cheese and snack board from Appleton Farms, the Boston Public Market's purveyer of over 100 Massachusetts cheeses!


  • Friday, January 11 from 6:00-7:30 pm

About Privateer Rum

Privateer Rum produces outstanding American rums by selecting the best possible ingredients and embracing the time-honored techniques from the finest rum, Cognac, whiskey and eau de vie makers. Founded in Ipswich, MA by Andrew Cabot, the namesake and direct descendant of American patriot, privateer, and rum-maker Andrew Cabot (1750-1791), Privateer Rum has pioneered a new standard in rum — one of superior quality and character. Honoring the spirit of American independence and conviction, Privateer Rum relentlessly focuses on quality at every point of their practice, including rejecting many of the common industry practices such as the use of sweeteners and artificial colorings or flavorings that exclude rum from being considered a fine spirit.
