«More than 50.000 spectators have seen the shows that Rhum & Cia have premiered at Grec Festival since 2014. And ever since everyone has been happily intoxicated by the wicked and witty humour of the company. Here you have the 2020 harvest.»
Where is the secret to be found? Perhaps in a mixture of local varieties, perhaps in the velvety texture of the great classics or in the flavour of the humour they practice. The thing is that the products of this cellar have created an addiction amongst audiences since 2014 when they premiered Rhum, and later in 2016 with Rhümia and in 2018 with Rhumans came the last shot.
A varying team of sommeliers is in charge of waiting tables equipped with a red nose, great humour doses, but also with magic and tenderness. These clowns will refill our glasses with a delicious well aged humour, but when they recover the highlights of their previous shows they deliver them in a frenetic rhythm.
The result is a great reserve that promises to awaken our love for craziness and nonsense, while dwindling our most rational and boring side. Deserving all kinds of awards, the previous Rhum & Cia harvests have even received a City of Barcelona Award in the Circus category for Rhumans, 2018. So, what can you expect from a liquor distilled from the best achievements yet? Gran reserva (Great reserve) promises to bring to a spectacular end an experience emerged when a group of artists wanted to pay homage to the late Joan Montanyès “Monti”, one of the best actors and clowns of our time.
