A virtual voyage into the delicious world of rum, taking festival goers on a journey to meet some leading rum producers from around the globe and make cocktails live with professional bartenders from Amsterdam, Paris, Colorado (US) and Havana (Cuba)!

Hosted on a Zoom platform, the festival runs from midday to 8pm, offering worldwide cocktail masterclasses and multiple rooms to join tastings with some of the world’s finest rum brands.

This one-off experience costs £60 a ticket (early bird £50 tickets available until 10th July) HERE and must be purchased by 29th July to ensure festival pack delivery.

As part of the festival guests will learn how to create 4 rum cocktails live from international cocktail bars, sample over 25 unique tots of rum and listen to distillers and brand owners share stories and insights into how they make their incredible products.

This is a one-off experience to enjoy from the comfort of home, whilst long-haul travel is currently restricted, tasting the true spirit of Trinidad, Barbados, Bermuda, Martinique and Guadeloupe. Distilleries to be showcased include Foursquare, Trinidad Distillers Ltd and Damoiseau.

The live cocktail sessions will start at Duke of Tokyo (Amsterdam) and Dirty Dick (Paris) then end at Montanya (Colorado, USA) and El Del Frente (Havana, Cuba).

The festival is the brainchild of rum aficionados, Indy Anand, Jaz Anand and Chet Ladwa of RumCask with over 15 years’ experience in the rum industry between them, this is a celebration of all the elements of rum culture that they love.

Each ticket entitles people to a bespoke festival pack containing rum tasters, a festival booklet and cocktail recipes to shake up live, guided by the bartenders.

Tickets are £60 each, on sale HERE and must be purchased by Wednesday 29th July in order to send out the festival packs in time. The festival is only available to people living in Europe due to time-zone restrictions and postage.
