A two-day festival will take place next month for connoisseurs and enthusiasts of some of the world’s best rums and cocktails.

UK RumFest is taking place at the ExCel exhibition centre on October 12 and 13, and features over 400 of the rarest and most exquisite rums.

There will be cocktail demonstrations, seminars and masterclasses hosted by industry aficionados as well as a Tropical Food Market including food from all over the world along with live music and presentations on the main stage.

New to the festival this year is the exclusive Connoisseur’s Cove, allowing visitors to engross themselves into rum’s rich culture and history and discover some of the rarest rums on the market.

Ian Burrell, global rum ambassador and founder of The Rum Experience, said: “UK RumFest is the destination event for rum lovers and we promise two days that will take each and every visitor on a journey of rum discovery.”

Tickets are £25 including a booking fee with Connoisseur’s Cove tickets priced at £45 plus booking fee.
