Welcome to the Tiki Easy Bar Rum Club, Asheville’s first-ever Rum Club! Our deep appreciation for rum is a huge reason why we opened Tiki Easy in the first place and it’s time that we share some of our premium, rare, historic, and near-extinct rums and what we’ve learned about the craft of distilling sugarcane that has been around since the 1600s. We are constantly working to source and provide the best rum selection in North Carolina, and want to share it at a discount with both rum enthusiasts and rum novices alike!


This month's session taking place Sunday, June 2nd at 7pm will be: Demerara Rum Tasting…What Makes Rum From Guyana Different? (Individual Session Cost $50)


Topic: Demerara rums are crucial components of many tiki cocktails.  We’ll explore Guyana’s only distillery and what makes it unique along with sampling El Dorado 12 Year, 15 Year, and 21 Year. We’ll end with a one-off Tiki Easy Bar cocktail.


More info on The Tiki Easy Rum Club: The Tiki Easy Rum Club will meet monthly with two options on the fourth Thursday or Sunday of each month at The Tiki Easy Bar. We will be offering individual monthly sessions which will vary in cost depending on the topic and rums poured. Seats are limited to 10 people per session. Please see our Instagram page for the itinerary and meeting topics for each month and dates for the rest of 2024. 


The sessions will be led by one of our incredible bartenders, Ian Kearney. Ian has over 10 years of experience in the industry and first fell in love with rum while working at a bar called Extra Fancy, arguably one of THE industry bars in NYC at the time. He has traveled to many distilleries around the world to learn about how different spirits are produced and experience the blending of barrels and rickhouse rotations. We look forward to sharing some incredible rum with all of you!
