Thirsty Blogger (and toddy) on Nat Geo

Yea boy. American-produced TV drinking show CHUG was in Malaysia some time back to check out our local brew and drinking culture. The Thirsty Blogger was contacted to show ’em a thing or two about drinking, so i took them for toddy! Posted about it here.

Anyway, the show premiered in the US on Nat Geo recently, and the first show was on Malaysia. The series is hosted by established alco Zane Lamprey, who travels around the world drinking local style for CHUG.

Son of bitch has a great job.

There are some production shots here. Zane tried to teach me a game called The Good Burp. I was evidently unimpressed.

Monkeying around

Dont let the booze fall now

Not sure if will it air on Nat Geo here as well. Either way we had a good time drinking fresh, healthy coconut beverages!


Captain Morgan goes white

The ol’ captain, legendary for its dark and spiced rums, is gonna hit the white rum market. And about time if u ask me.

Did u? Ask me i mean?

Either way, I’m telling. According to Diageo, its new Captain Morgan rum is produced in the American Virgin Islands and is “five-times distilled, clean, slightly sweet and creamy”.

It actually does over a year in oak barrels, but not long enough for a change in colour.

One of my fave rums is the Captain Morgan Black Label, which is a dark rum with blends from Jamaica, Guyana & Barbados.



White rums have their uses of course, as they’re the base for various cocktails. U dont wanna be making Strawberry Daiquiris with an aged rum.

They plan to  focus on Caribbean-inspired cocktail recipes with this baby.

It’s gonna take Bacardi head-on. This was just launched in the US, where Captain Morgan’s growth is in double digits. It’s now the no 3 spirits brand there.

Arrr, capt’n, ya done well matey!
