Nu har det börjat komma in information om RumFest 2015 i London. Det blir det sjätte året, och man följer upp den trend som sattes förra året – att höja nivån till lite mer “premium” och lite mindre “party”. Grundaren Ian Burrell har utlovat att det ska bli den största mässan hittills.
Det har redan presenterat några (nya) märken som kommer att närvara, bland annat Ron Tiburon, Le Dom Tom, Nine Leaves, Panamonte, Panama Red, Juan Santos och Ron Esclavo.
Mässan går av stapeln 17-18 oktober, och biljetter finns att köpa redan nu. Länkar finns på hemsidan: rumfest.co.uk
Vi kommer såklart att återkomma med mer information när det närmar sig mässan, men tills vidare kör vi delar av den officiella pressreleasen (på engelska):
For rum-loving consumers, RumFest will be returning this year on the Saturday and Sunday […] and a new VIP ticket option that allows for earlier entry, two course meal and special RumFest souvenirs. Now in its ninth year the world’s premier rum festival will showcase rums from around the world including over 400 of the rarest and most diverse available on the market.
Following last year’s success the Golden Tot is back to give rum lovers the chance to try ultra-premium blends, some of which are not available to buy or drink anywhere else in the world. As well as exhibiting, brands will now have the opportunity to takeover intimate experience rooms to promote new releases and more to RumFest ticket holders. Sampling sessions will also allow small groups of discerning rum enthusiasts to sample handpicked rums from brands around the globe, guided by their representatives.
Brands set to feature at RumFest this year include some old favourites and some exciting new additions, all to be announced soon. Better than ever RumFest is set to feature masterclasses, seminars, cocktail making and tastings for both rum newcomers and aficionados, along with the food, music and culture of one of the world’s best loved spirits.[…]
Ian Burrell is proud to be bringing The Rum Experience University to RumFest for the second year and the 2015 programme and tickets will be announced soon.
