Notting Hill Restaurant awarded world record for its rum collection

Notting Hill restaurant Cottons has been recognised by Guinness World Records as the bar with the most varieties of rum commercially available.

The Caribbean restaurant stocks 372 rums, including the 1960s British Navy Rum Flagon, which is priced at £255 a shot and £6,250 per bottle.

Manager Samantha Edwards was presented with the certificate last week at the Notting Hill restaurant, which opened in April.

She said: "Our varied collection of rums has been meticulously sourced from around the world, including everything from well-known brands to small batch rums. It's fantastic that Guinness World Records has been able to make it official that we serve more rums than anyone else."

Cottons, which also has sites in Camden and Shoreditch, has introduced a ‘cocktail training school' for budding bar hopefuls keen to enter the industry. The course includes a week's live training at one of Cotton's rhum shacks.
