Boutique RumFest 2013 – Registration Now Open Sep 28

The Rum Experience RumFest

Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October 2013, London’s ExCeL

Rum’s popularity has soared in recent years, becoming the UKs fastest growing spirit and the drink of choice for millions across the globe. There has also been a large rise in smaller brands available on the market and Boutique RumFest offers a platform for emerging distillers who would not necessarily have the opportunity otherwise to showcase their new products. Brands appearing at this year’s event will benefit from exposure to key industry figures including wholesalers, buyers, distributors and importers, giving them an invaluable opportunity to develop and grow within the industry. Bringing rum’s finest together for one weekend, brands for this year include Real McCoy Rum, Santiago De Cuba, Westerhall Rum and many more. No other event within the UK and beyond offers such an unrivalled and valuable opportunity.

Likewise, attendees to this year’s intimate showcase will be given a real insight into these developing brands and will gain a unique understanding into the world of this burgeoning spirit. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample and taste some of the newest brands on the market.

Boutique RumFest is an invitation/registration ONLY event, if you are a member of the Trade or Press please apply for tickets via the RumFest registration form. Attendees to Boutique RumFest will also gain complimentary access to the general area at UK RumFest, The Rum Experience. Those who wish to gain access to the Connoisseurs’ Cove area will need to purchase tickets from the RumFest website.

Founder of the Boutique and UK RumFest and Global Rum Ambassador, Ian Burrell comments: “We are delighted to see the return of Boutique RumFest this year. UK RumFest is the ultimate celebration of all things rum and it’s so important that rising, independent brands are given the platform to showcase their talents and the recognition they clearly deserve. Boutique RumFest 2012 proved to be great stepping stone for small, emerging rum brands and we can’t wait to see even more join us in October.”

UK RumFest is presented by The Rum Experience and takes place on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October 2013 at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre.
