RumFest 2017 ready to go

12 October, 2017

The 11th edition of The RumFest will take place this weekend in London, hosted by global brand ambassador Ian Burrell.

Global rum ambassador Ian Burrell says the rum category would benefit from having regulated classifications around the world.

Global rum ambassador Ian Burrell has praised the standard of competition after the opening day of semi-finals of the Bacardi Legacy cocktail competition in Berlin.

Tom Walker of the American Bar at The Savoy hotel in London, has won the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition 2014.

Aiming to make its mark on the global rum scene, the island of Mauritius held its first rum festival at the end of August.

The first Mauritius Rum Festival will take place later this month with the aim of promoting the Mauritian rum industry globally.
