Det är snart dags för UK RumFest – för åttonde året! Som vanligt så drar RumFest till sig många av de största märkena!
I år kommer det enligt rykten vara ännu bredare innehåll, och mer “Premium” – och mindre fokus på ren fest. RumFest kommer enligt mässan att ha bland annat: “cocktail making tutorials, rum and food pairings and a series of engaging masterclasses and seminars”
