Dr Rum - Rum Bar Manager AKA Mark Wyatt
The infamous Dr Rum is Australia’s Rum Ambassador, when he’s not behind the bar making mojitos and sharing his knowledge of this fine spirit he’s running Rum Journeys (which is like a tour and tasting through the world of rum). Dr Rum has has been lucky enough to be asked to get involved with judging global cocktail competitions, creating rum blends, advising distillers, importers, bars and generally sticking his nose into the Worldwide Rum community. Somewhere in this chaos, “Dr Rum” stuck as a name, It’s easier on the tongue than Rum Ambassador and a bit less snooty. Oh, and he refuses to wear a name badge with Mark on it.
