This weekend, Saturday 11th and Sunday the 12th, RumFest makes its return to London.
The festival, which marks the 8th annual celebration of all things rum promises a bonanza of flavours, nibbles and tipples and The Alt Entertainer will be on hand at the ILEC Centre to try as many as possible.
This year’s festival will feature cocktail seminars, rum cookery masterclasses and a charity auction. We have already identified the ‘pairing rum with marshmallow ‘ class as being worth a closer look and there look to be plenty of other great rum-based experiences offered across the weekend.
The ticket price is £49 and includes plenty of single-measure samples from the exhibition stands. For those who like things a little more premium, £5 will buy you a ‘Golden Tot’ which can be exchanged for a measure of rum from a bottle worth £80-100.
For a full review of the festival – if for some very good reason you aren’t able to make it – read our journo Joe’s account after the weekend.
