Rums at the ready for Manchester’s first Rum Festival Jan 19

Manchester Rum Festival LogoManchester’s first ever rum festival is coming to town this year, thanks to freelance drinks curator Dave Marsland, aka the Drinks Enthusiast.

Located at Revolución De Cuba, the festival will be held on Saturday 3rd June, and will boast over 40 types of rum including Bacardi, Chairman’s Reserve, Diplomático, Sailor Jerry and Mezan. Brunches, afterparties and shenanigans galore will mean it’ll be a Caribbean affair from dusk ’til dawn.

Tickets cost £15 for the festival (brunches and afterparties not included) which runs from 12pm-5pm, and include a welcome drink by sponsor Coco Re’al, along with a taster from each of the 15 stalls as you work your way round exploring the top brands.

And if that’s not enough booze for you, a team of mixologists and brand ambassadors will be on hand at the cocktail bar serving up a selection of rum cocktail favourites.*

Dave Marsland said “Rum is a staple within the Manchester bar scene, especially with the popularity of venues such as Revolución De Cuba, so I wanted to celebrate it! There’s so many incredible rum brands I felt the best way to celebrate them would be with a festival.

The festival will host entertainment, themed food and drinks offers and gifts, so we really are going all out, plus there’ll be events running throughout the day to get everyone in Manchester involved. I’m just looking forward to meeting guests on the day and seeing how popular the already much-loved brands become.”

Details for brunches and afterparties and further rum promotions will be announced soon, but here’s how to purchase your ticket to the main festival – www.manchesterrumfestival.com/whats-on

Sipping Rums of the Caribbean with Stefanie Holt Sep 29

The Whisky ExchangeIn the run-up to the UK’s largest rum-tasting exhibition, RumFest, The Whisky Exchange will be hosting a soirée to look into the world of aged rums.

They’re delighted to welcome Stefanie Holt, International Brand Ambassador for El Dorado Rum, to present a range of sipping rums from around the Caribbean.

Although Stefanie works for Demerara Distillers, makers of El Dorado Rum, she is very much a champion of rum as a whole. Basically, if you’re drinking her rum then that’s great, but so long as you’re drinking any quality rum, it’s all good!

Education is the name of the game and to this end, Stefanie will present a range of seven aged rums. Each has its own unique style and is representative of the island or country that it is from.

Sipping Rums of the Caribbean

The line-up for this exotic Caribbean cruise is as follows:

  • Matusalem 15yo Gran Reserva
  • Diplomatico Single Vintage 2000
  • Barbancourt 15yo
  • Rhum JM 2002
  • Appleton Estate 12yo
  • El Dorado 15yo
  • El Dorado 21yo

The tasting will take place on Monday 29 September, 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £30 each.

As ever, tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to two per customer. Tickets went on sale at 3pm, Wednesday 17 September
