Live Q&A With Mhoba Rum Owner And Distiller Robert Greaves

I've always been a keen follower of Mhoba Rum and its owner, Robert Greaves. First time I was introduced to Mhoba was at UK Rumfest, a few years ago. I was very impressed by their rum lineup and equally impressed by Robert's story and vision. Luckily, we were able to stay in touch since then, which resulted in a Rum Revelations interview and now a live Q&A. Robert had never done this before, so I'm humbled he said yes. He should do more things like this, as I feel the whole world should know about Mhoba rum.


Building your own stills and having a cane to bottle operation is already interesting enough, but there is a lot more to the story. There are also guest appearances by Karl Mudzamba from Bira!, who are soon releasing a Mhoba expression in Canada, and Eric Kaye from Holmes Cay, who's doing the same in the US.


The live connection with South Africa wasn't the greatest, which is why the picture quality isn't the best and why the image freezes sometimes. The audio is great though and never stops. The lighting on my face isn't ideal, it makes me look like I'm wearing a Phantom of the opera mask. Luckily, it's not about me. :)
