National Rum Day is a day of rum celebration; a day where rum events take place all over the country. National Rum Day is all about making rum fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive. You can drink it however you enjoy it (on the rocks, with water, a mixer – whatever works for you). We want to be all-inclusive and that means any kind of rum from anywhere in the U.S.
On Tuesday, August 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. ZINC Apartments in Cambridge, MA will be doing its part to commemorate the delicious spirit’s annual celebration by bringing in 5 of region’s finest distilleries for an outdoor tasting – Privateer (Ipswich, MA); GrandTen Distilling (Boston, MA); Deacon Giles Distillery (Salem, MA); Short Path Distillery (Everett, MA) and New England Sweetwater Farm & Distillery (Winchester, NH).
Join your friends and ours at this unique, one-time-only Rum Pop-Up that will feature samplings from some of the region’s most renowned spirits. While socializing and enjoying stunning views of the Boston skyline from ZINC’s 15,000 sq. ft. outdoor terrace, you and your friends will also have the opportunity to sample signature cocktails provided by each distillery and pair with a selection of mouth-watering complimentary bar bites. There truly is no better place to celebrate National Rum Day this year, so grab a dram and join us to celebrate the water of life.
NOTE: Please take into consideration that there is no on-site parking; guests can take the Green Line to Lechmere Station, located one block from ZINC, park at the Lechmere Station lot or in meter parking spots along Third Street.
ZINC’s highly anticipated opening drives momentum in the area which is seeing a boom in redevelopment and improved connectivity to surrounding neighborhoods. Developed by Wood Partners, the multifamily community is located steps away from the soon-to-be relocated MBTA Lechmere Station on the Green line, providing easy access for Boston commuters. The extended Green Line will stop right in front of the multifamily community, and the property is within walking distance to attractions like the Cambridge Galleria, TD Garden and Museum of Science. ZINC boasts a 15,000-square-foot outdoor terrace featuring grilling stations, TVs, a fireplace and sculpture. Residents also have full access to 24-hour concierge service, a fully-equipped bike shop, pet spa, media room and business center, fitness center with a yoga, Pilates and spin room, and a clubroom lounge with a kitchen, pool table and flat screen TV. The apartment homes also include quartz countertops, single basin sinks, stainless steel appliances, self-closing drawers, floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in closets and full-size washer and dryers.
