Discover A World of Rum!
- Celebrate the UK’s love of Rum at the second, annual Rum Experience -

Do you fancy yourself as a bit of a cocktail connoisseur? Are you a party animal or a rum buff? Or do you just want to chill out and imagine yourself far away on a desert island sipping rum in the hot sun?

If any of the above sounds like you, make sure you pay a trip to this year’s Rum Experience on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of October at The Royal Horticultural Halls in London. The Rum Experience (, organised by Organza Events, is Europe’s only festival dedicated to the wonders and experiences of rum from all over the world and it’s back by popular demand for the second year running.

The Rum Experience, the brain child of The UK's Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell, in association with IPBartenders, is a chance to shake off your winter blues and get in the fiesta spirit whilst learning everything you need to know about rum. The UK’s leading rum experts, blenders and mixologists will be on hand to teach you about rum from Australia to Venezuela and offer insight into the world of rum and top tips for making your favourite rum cocktails – perfect for impressing your friends at festive cocktail parties!

Once you’ve learnt all you need to know about the art of making cocktails why not see how the professionals shake it and pay a visit to La Femme Fatale Cocktail Competition. The country’s top mixologistes, will be battling it out to be crowned champion in the finals of the UK’s only rum cocktail competition for female bartenders. These ladies will certainly show you where the kick in your Mojito goes!

Chocolate and rum are two of every girl’s favourite indulgences. With a little help from expert Duane Dove you can learn how to best combine these two pleasures by discovering how to match premium rums with the finest chocolate. So if you want to indulge yourself, or a loved one, make sure you stop by to learn Duane’s secrets.

If all that rum fun makes you a little light headed, why not chill out in Bacardi’s Dominoes and Daiquiri zone and take part in the Caribbean’s favourite past time whilst sipping on their world renowned drink. Once you’ve relaxed, rehydrated and recharged don’t miss a number of London’s top night spots, all famous for their rum cocktails, participate in RumFest’s very own battle of the bars. Bartenders from defending champions Trailer Happiness will be going shaker to shaker with tiki bar challengers to win this year’s Tiki Face Off crown.

The weekend will also play host to a wide selection of live music bands playing tropical tunes, chances to win a trip to the Caribbean and book signings from leading authors all of which will create a truly unique rum experience.

So if all that’s got you ‘rumming’ for more, make sure you join us for a jam packed day celebrating the world’s (and our) love of rum. For further information please visit or to book tickets in advance, please visit
