Rumfest 2013 – Rum Lovers Rejoice

With the memory of last years fun and antics at Rumfest still fondly looked upon we’re please to shout from the roof tops that tickets are now on sale for Rumfest 2013! (Cue excited teenage girl scream).

The 2 day festival will be back at London’s ExCel taking place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October 2013 and will offer visitors the chance once again to embark on a journey of rum discovery.

This year there will be a slight change with a 2 tiered ticketing structure with the 2nd tier allowing you access to something called a Connoisseur’s Cove.

What is it I hear you ask? well for the first time, UK RumFest introduces the brand new Connoisseur’s Cove area inviting the discerning drinker to an exclusive rum haven. (or heaven if you want to call it that) Visitors can sip, savour and discover some of the rarest, most exquisite premium rums from across the globe.

This exclusive area is perfectly designed to take the connoisseur on an extensive rum discovery, set away from the lively Carnival crowds and creating an incredible journey. Expect some very special rums of distinctions to sample whilst educating palates like never before. We also hear there is no need for coupons in here (shhh you didn’t hear that from us)

So if you fancy sampling from over 400 of the rarest and most diverse rums from across the globe as well as feature intimate seminars hosted by industry aficionados, an extended Tropical Food Market with mouthwatering food from all over the world, plus live music and main stage presentations and holiday giveaways, then I suggest you book up now before tickets sell out as we have been told there will only be a limited number of tickets on the door.

The UK RumFest is presented by the main man Ian Burrell and takes place on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October 2013 at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

Standard tickets for this year’s RumFest are now on sale from starting at £25 and includes access to central zone featuring Rum Bars and selected Rum brands, the Tropical Food Market, seminar rooms and the Main Stage presentation area.

The Connoisseur’s Cove tickets priced at £45 allowing an additional exclusive access to the most exquisite rum brands available at the moment where visitors are invited to take their journey of rum discovery to the next level.

Weekend tickets are priced at £80 and include access to the Connoisseur’s Cove.
