My name is Manuel Alvarez, I’m a bartender at Mahiki in London. I’m doing as a project a tour of all the Caribbean distilleries, landing to Jamaica the 28 of september, as a big rum lover i would like to visit your distillery to learn more about the production of your rum.

Many thanks and lot of love…

I LOVE YOU AND WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
