Sure, the pubs may have reopened but we are still digging the fun events happening from the comfort of our own living room. On Saturday 8th of August, RumCask brings you the European Rum and Cocktail Online Festival – a virtual voyage into the delicious world of rum, taking festival-goers on a journey to meet some of the leading rum producers from around the globe – all without jumping on a plane.
As part of the festival guests will learn how to create 4 rum cocktails live from international cocktail bars, sample over 25 unique tots of rum and listen to distillers and brand owners share stories and insights into how they make their incredible products.
This one-off experience promises a taste of the true spirit of Trinidad, Barbados, Bermuda, Martinique and Guadeloupe. Distilleries to be showcased include Foursquare, Trinidad Distillers Ltd and Damoiseau. The live cocktail sessions will start at Duke of Tokyo (Amsterdam) and Dirty Dick (Paris) then end at Montanya (Colorado, USA) and El Del Frente (Havana, Cuba).
Each RumCask ticket entitles you to a bespoke festival pack containing rum tasters, a festival booklet and cocktail recipes to shake up live, guided by the bartenders.
Tickets are £60 each, on sale HERE and must be purchased by Wednesday 29th July in order for you to receive everything in time. The festival is only available to people living in Europe due to time-zone restrictions and postage.
