It is time once again to dust off your drinking caps, do your stretches and kiss your loved ones goodbye as RumFest is back for 2014 and this time its shaking things up.
This year promised a deeper rum experience with the opportunity to try over 400 different blends from around the world as well as get and access to rum’s elite brands that are usually worth over £200, thanks to the all-new ‘Golden Tot Token’ available for only £5. We like those maths!
Once again RumFest’s famous tropical food market will bring the vibe of exotic rum making locations and along with cocktail masterclasses and seminars will ensure a weekend full of this stunning drink’s culture.
So mark Friday 10th to Sunday 12th October and make note that RumFest is back with a fresh look and a new venue. The eighth annual RumFest has moved from Excel to a more intimate setting of London’s ILEC.
The eighth (yep there has been that many) annual The RumFest will showcase rums from around the world as well as the most premium blends on the market.
Masterclasses, seminars, cocktail making and tastings will take rum lovers and newcomers on a voyage of discovery, charting a sea of rum brands and categories to the food, music and culture of the UK’s fastest growing spirit.
This year the more discerning drinker can tread new and unexplored territories, as The RumFest raises the bar and invites brands to bring their most premium blends, unlocking the door to rum’s most sought after drinks.
Here’s a flavour of what to expect from last year:
Tickets are now on sale for £49.95 and are available with more information from the RumFest website here.
Yes it’s more expensive than last year however this year you will get to try over 400 different blends from around the world with some of the most exquisite rums available to sip, savour and buy. With an offer like that, we’ll drink to it!
If that’s not enough, we are told that the doors will stay open till 6.30 this year, giving you more time to try more rums! #MoRum
“Rum is not just a drink, it’s a way of life.” Says Ian Burrell, Global Rum Ambassador, Founder of The RumFest and The Rum Experience and we like to live by those words.
RumFest will always have a special place in our hearts as it was the place where Eray (see about us) came up with the idea for this very website you are on now. So who knows what ideas can come from this year’s RumFest!
Get your tickets and we’ll see you there.
