We’re bringing Caribbean sunshine to the UK

Welcome to The Rum Festival, the UK’s first travelling Rum Festival…. We love Rum and we think you will too!


Rum is the most diverse and versatile of the spirits. Great on its own over ice, perfect blended with your favourite mixer, or shaken up in a cocktails, rum is the perfect drink for any occasion.


At The Rum Festival we will introduce you to over 100 different rums from around the globe. With varied production methods, different fermentation timings, diverse ageing and cask approaches, climate and of course blending, every rum is different and there is definitely something for everyone.


Although there is much debate about the catagorisation of Rum; the most simple way is to group it into colour categories and that is how you’ll find them at The Rum Festival. White, Golden, Dark, Spiced, and Flavoured, but don’t worry if you know nothing about rum our friendly team will be there to help you choose.
