Rumfest 2011

Last Year I was very fortunate enough to attend an event that has since been talked about pretty much every day since to friends and family.

That event is Rumfest!

So to explain this in the easiest way:

1 – Kensington Olympia is hired out for 2 days
2 – Pretty much every Rum brand has an area where they give out free samples (over 400)
3 – Amazing Cocktails
4 – Live music and entertainment
5 – You only pay a small amount to get in (£20) and then all the drinks are free via tokens

It was heaven for me. Being a cigar smoker I was able to investigate all the different rums and really differentiate between what rums would pair with my cigars.


Last year I was also fortunate to have VIP access to the Appleton Estate VIP area where I sampled an array of cocktails.
Another highlight for me was trying all the different Havana Clubs which I love with a Montecristo Edmundo or No.2.

Don’t make the same mistake I did and plan to meet your family for an intimate family gathering after….they will be able to tell how drunk you are & As the day goes on, you will find yourself doing allot of Jack Sparrow Impressions!

Rumfest takes place 14th – 16th October, 2011 at Kensington Olympia. More info can be found here at Rumfest’s website

If you are going I’ll see you there and I will be bringing my cigar club with me for a good smoke after. Venue TBC

Check out the video below to get a flavour of what to expect:

I tried to film something for my blog when I was there….but got too drunk! 😦
