UK RumFest returns for seventh year
As rum lays claim to being the fastest-growing spirits category in the UK, RumFest has announced its return to London for the seventh year.
Global rum ambassador and founder of the Rum Experience Ian Burrell will present UK RumFest event at London’s ExCeL on October 12-13.
The event promises a brand new programme of events and seminars, as well as the opportunity to meet brand ambassadors and taste an array of rums from both emerging and established producers.
A new feature introduced this year is the Connoisseur’s Cove, where exclusive rum brands will present their wares, and the Tropical Food Market has been extended to offer even more choice.
Burrell said: “UK RumFest offers rum brands from across the globe the chance to showcase their new or established brands to an audience that suits their objectives. Our ambition is to propel the rum category even further within the industry and to educate those who are eager to learn and discover.
Those who know me well understand the great passion and love I have for rum and it’s a great pleasure to be able to create an event to be enjoyed by all.”
The event takes place at London’s ExCeL over the weekend of October 12-13. Visit the UK RumFest website for more information and to purchase tickets.
