RumFest London is a brilliant rum festival celebrating the delights and diversity of rum. Back again for a fifth year, the festival give you the chance to try out a whole range of different rums and see just why the pirate's favourite tipple is back in the popularity stakes.

2014 event
Kicking off the excitement of RumFest, the Rum Experience takes place over the Excel Centre for one weekend in October, where keen rum drinkers can try a range of rums as rum experts, mixologists and blenders teach you the finer ways of the spirit.

Not just for pirates
Once the drink of swarthy seagoers and Captain Jack-a-likes, rum is now one of the most popular spirits currently available in bars, and RumFest London is set to show you why. Over the two day festival visitors will be able to try a range of different rums from all over the world. From Mauritius to Venezuela, the rums on offer illustrate the wonderful and diverse flavours of different varieties, as well as the chance to taste some of the rarest rums on the planet.

Delicious rum cocktails
And it's not just about drinking it straight either. Rum is the key component in many cocktails, and the RumFest London event has plenty of master blenders, distillers and world famous mixologists on hand to take you through the many fascinating facts about rum before letting you get to grips with a Daiquiri or Mojito or two.

Competitions and more
For the more serious rum drinker, seminars take place throughout the weekend and there are event cocktail master classes which will show you how to go about creating some delicious rum tipples of your own. You can also step out on the dance floor during a salsa session or have a go at winning a holiday to the Caribbean itself.

Caribbean flavours
New for 2014 is a Boutique Rums sampling session in one of the tasting suites where you can enjoy an hourly tasting extravaganza to sample some of the most interesting and different rums from around the world. Try a Taste of Cachaca, The Far East or English Rums throughout the day and see which global rums you like the best.
