The world's largest rum festival is back this weekend and we cannot wait to get back to seeing the rest of the rum trade, from the master distillers, blenders, brands and industry aficionados from across the globe, as well as catch up with our good friend Ian Burrell once again (probably for a rum!)

Ian Burrell, otherwise known as The Global Rum Ambassador and one of the most unique figures in the spirits & cocktail world, founded Rum Fest UK in 2007 with the aim to promote the category of rum to the world and what a success it has been, inspiring The Miami Rum Congress, the Berlin Rumfest, Paris Rhum fest and the other rum festivals in Czech Republic, Sweden, Mauritius, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Hong Kong.
Every year over 4000 rum lovers gather in London for Rum Fest UK to sip, savour and learn about rum during intimate seminars and masterclasses, many of which sell out within minutes.
We are very much looking forward to getting the inside track on the next big thing in rum as well as try some hidden gems and world exclusives alongside our friends and rum family.
This year Rum Fest coincides with what used to be London Cocktail Week, now London Cocktail MONTH. A super opportunity to visit some of the capitals finest bars, and pay a fraction of the standard price for exceptional cocktails!!! Not to be missed.
