The New London County Historical Society and The Real McCoy invite you to participate in Rum, Rum Runners and Rapscallions. Dress up, learn the history of Pirates, Privateers, and Rum Runners in southeastern Connecticut, and sample fine rums provided by The Real McCoy. In addition there will be a signature rum cocktail available for your enjoyment.
Our executive director will tell the tales of the Pirate Henry Morgan, Privateer Thomas Allen, and the rumrunner the Real McCoy, before the tasting.
The NLCHS will be adhering to Covid-19 guidelines for our event, so we only have 80 tickets available. This is a 21 and older event. Masks are required, costumes are encouraged. We are hoping to bring in a food truck and are discussing our music options.
