The seventh annual festival for rum connoisseurs was another tasteful success as over 7,000 people packed into the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

The UK RumFest took place on October 12 and 13 and brought its usual fusion of Caribbean culture with over 400 types of rum, expert mixologists and delicious food.

The live music was performed by drum troupes as visitors sampled some of the rarest rums from across the world and immersed themselves in well established brands such as Havana Club and Mount Gay.

The new Connoisseur’s Cove area was a popular attraction, with rum aficionados invited to explore and learn through seminars, masterclasses and cocktail making.
