Last week, Tommy Bahama, the island-inspired restaurant chain, clothier and rum producer, announced a search to discover the first-ever Tommy Bahama “Rumologist.” Before you ask…
A Rumologist is a person with a vast knowledge of all things related to rum – one that can pour, educate, mix and create island-inspired cocktails for Tommy Bahama,” explains Rob Goldberg, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Restaurants for Tommy Bahama. “The person we are looking for must embody everything that a Tommy Bahama Rumologist should be about,” adds Goldberg. “They must not only love to create cocktails and put new twists on old recipes, but he or she must be so passionate about rum, that this person alone could claim this new title.
The winner will fulfill his Rumologist duties by traveling, drinking rum, hosting events and developing cocktails for Tommy Bahama restaurants as the company’s chief rum consultant and ambassador. Not a bad gig. Other perks include $50,000 and an appropriately-themed wardrobe.
Interested parties should create a 45-60 second video declaring their candidacy and explaining why they should be chosen. Enter via the Tommy Bahama Facebook Page.
The winner will be announced in October.
