Leeds Rum Festival

Leeds Rum Festival


It's A Rum Old Do!

Back for a second year this year there will be over 80 rum expressions, masterclasses from the likes of Diplomatico, Appleton, Pussers and many more as well as a special cocktail masterclass with Re'al cocktail ingredients.

The only rum festival in Leeds that offers all free samples.  The only thing the customer pays for is the ticket.

Masterclasses will be hosted by brand ambassadors allowing rum lovers new and old to discover more about their favourite tipple from the people that know the most about them.

With Caribbean music, street food from Little Bao Boy and Eat New York as well as Sugar Spun Sisters cooking up some rum inspired waffle flavours (think Pina colada waffles) it promises to be a right rum old do.

Five Rum Facts:

When the British Royal Navy first started rum rationing, the allocation was one pint of rum per sailor per day

Rum is the most diverse spirit category in the world as it has no real rules and regulations apart from that it has to be made from sugar cane.

85% of the world’s rum is made from molasses; 15% is made from pure sugar cane juice.

It is believed that rum was born in Barbados.

The most expensive rum in the world was bottled by Wray and Nephew.
