Here’s what to expect at Birmingham’s Rum Festival

Birmingham Rum Festival is back next month for its 4th year –  offering a fresh opportunity to discover new rums as well as the people and stories behind each brand and bottle.

There will be a fantastic line-up of rum to enjoy over the whole weekend at The Cuban Embassy in Moseley from June 29-30.

They include Neptune Rum, the world’s most awarded rum of 2018, with its luxurious blend of authentic golden rums and Burning Barn Rum, a fusion of both smoked and spiced rum created just outside Guyana.

New kid on the block is the ultra-premium ‘24 Royale’ Caribbean rum; which delivers a balanced taste with a delicately rounded finish.

Also exhibiting are Goslings and El Dorado who are featuring their Tiki Lovers Pineapple Rum from The Bitter Truth.

Revellers can also get to try an exciting new rum punch from Baynoir. It’s sure to be a big hit in the summer sunshine!

A couple of other fantastic brands coming are Soggy Dollar and Nusa Cana.

Nusa Cana brings back the forgotten spirit of Indonesian rum, once the toast of punch house and bordellos across the world.

Nuna Cana is a blend of island rums, set apart by its rugged Indonesian heart, fresh aroma, sugarcane flavour and a straight up attitude.

As well as tasting rums, guests can learn from rum experts and brand representatives as they introduce you to their range, and give you inside knowledge on the distillation process.

After there is also the opportunity to browse the rum shop and buy a special bottle of rum or two to enjoy back at home.

The annual summer fiesta also offers exotic street food brimming with the flavours of Latin America and the Caribbean islands which guests can enjoy as they sip on exclusive signature rum cocktails.

The Cuban cocktails are created exactly the way they are made in Havana providing allowing for guests to experience the well-crafted rum blends in a new and unique way.

Creating the perfect summer festival atmosphere, live performers will be providing a soundtrack of salsa, samba and reggae music so that visitors can enjoy tropical tunes whilst on their journey of rum discovery.
