Therearen’t many weekends we can devote solely to rum (as much as we’d love to), but we think we may just have found the perfect excuse!
UK RumFest is back and after six years of fine-tuning the man behind the world’s largest rum celebration, Ian Burrell, may well have come up with the right mix of tastings, cocktail sampling and a whole host of educating.
Doors open at midday on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October and two days will be filled with over 400 rums to sip and buy including some of our favourites Lamb’s, Zacapa, Mount Gay… the list goes on. London’s best rum bars will be serving up exclusive cocktails including the likes of Rum and Sugar & Cottons Camden Rhumshack, plus live cocktail demos, masterclasses, seminars and some delish rum infused food in the Tropical Food Market.
Expect samba dancers and carnival beats too. Oh yeah Winter may be on it’s way but it’s the tropical sun always shines at Rum Fest. Tickets set you back £25 for general admission or £45 if you want to venture into the Connoisseurs Cove area.
Make ours a mojito, cheers!
