Trio of Rum Festivals comes to Cardiff, Exeter & Bristol this summer
UK Rum Festivals have announced that they will be hosting three festivals this summer in Bristol, Cardiff & Exeter from July – September.
You will have the opportunity to taste over 50 rums, chats to industry experts, ambassadors and blenders; sample an array of outstanding cocktails from one of our pro bars; attend seminars, listen to live music and enjoy food from local vendors.
Although “Rum and Coke” seems to be the usual go-to, rum should not just be limited to this simple mix. Jon Rees, founder of the UK Rum Festivals says: “We want to show the world what it's overlooking and show the diversity of cane spirits. From spiced and sweetened offerings to truly magnificent blended and matured liquids”.
UK Rum festivals took it upon themselves to bring brands such as Ron Cubay, Skipper and Elements 8 as well as consumers together to build an event around the love and passion for this perhaps even underappreciated spirit.
With over 50 rums-from spiced to aged, the event does not only appeal to rum lovers and experts but also to newcomers and sceptics yet to be convinced of this outstanding spirit.
With exhibitors displaying their best liquors, you don’t only get a chance to taste rum but also to find out more about the process from cane to bottle. Every drop of rum has a story to tell and with the experts at hand, the story will be told.
Did one of the free samples catch your special attention? Why not take a bottle of your favourite liquor home with you? It will make a great addition to your collection.
Make use of the chill out zones all over The Passenger Shed to catch up with your friends and sip on a delicious rum-infused cocktail mixed at one of the three cocktail bars.
Live music will invite you to swing your hips, while you make your way through the delicious smells of street foods and the sound of clinking rum bottles.
For the small hunger, you’ll get the chance to try street foods from all over the world. From Caribbean cuisine to BBQ food, your culinary world trip will be best enjoyed with a glass of rum.
The UK Rum Festival isn’t just an event, it’s a lifestyle filled with colour and love for the precious beverage, a love that we want to share with you.
Tickets are available for £30, but if you wish to reveal the secrets of our Secret TikiRoom, you can upgrade your experience to VIP for just £50.
