Tickets For RumFest 2014 Now On Sale

The UK RumFest

The UK RumFest Returns in October with a Fresh Look and a New Venue  

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th October 2014
New venue - London's ILEC
 
It was only a few weeks ago when the one and only Global Rum Ambassador, Ian Burrell and I were sitting in a bar chatting excitedly about this year’s RumFest.  This year marks the 8th outing for the largest rum festival in the world, and whilst I may have bitched a bit before about the rudeness of some of those heading along just to get drunk, I genuinely felt RumFest 2013 was a positive step forward in tackling some of these issues.  I guess a hard truth of success is that the bigger a show gets, the scope for a few growing pains to develop creeps in.  This year the balance seems to be tilting further in favour of the ‘real rum fan’ and so I’m happy to share all the details as we know them.

Time for a Clément Rhum Ti’Punch or Two?

Rhum Clément Twisted Ti’Punch competition - Thè Pour Deux (Tea for Two)

Nicely Twisted Of Course…  

A little while ago, I got along to the London Heats of the Rhum Clément Twisted Ti’Punch competition being held at Rum and Sugar in Canary Wharf.  There really were some excellent cocktails being served up and the very best was by Mike Foster whom works at 69 Colebrooke Road (a bar with no name) in Islington, London.  If you’re up for the challenge, you can try your hand at recreating this cocktail yourselves using the recipe Mike shared with us.

Appleton Rum and Pancakes!

A Match Made In Pancake Heaven?  

If you celebrate Shrove or Shrovetide Tuesday, Pancake Day (or however you call it) as a prelude to Lent then today you could well be clearing your cupboard of all those temptations that will test your resolve in the coming days!  Even if you don't there’s a good chance that pancakes will feature and if you (like us) are rum fans, then you’ll love the Appleton Rum Butter Pancakes recipe we’d got to share with you.

Clément Rhum Masterclass at Amathus Drinks

Clément Rhum Masterclass at Amathus Drinks

I’m Thirsty for a Ti’Punch Now!    

A few days ago Amathus Drinks on Waldour Street (London) held a Rhum Clément masterclass.  With a section of rhums in front of me ranging from the excellent Clément Première Canne Rhum through to a Cuvée Spéciale X.O. containing a blend of three vintage years, I have to admit I was more than a little excited and rhum aside, it proved to be an extremely informative session that rushed by all too quickly.
