World's Largest Rum Masterclass

ILEC Conference Centre
Earl's Court


Rum's biggest event, The RumFest, is set to get a lot bigger as it invites guests to become part of a record breaking attempt to host the world's largest rum tasting, with hundreds of rum enthusiasts coming together to sample rums from across the globe. The tasting will be presented by leading brand representatives, who will be able to give attendees a comprehensive and unrivalled insight into six esteemed rums.

Representing Jamaica, Appleton's Rum will be sipped and savoured with commentary from revered master blender, Joy Spence, whilst Puerto Rico's number one premium rum from the Serralles distillery, Don Q, will be enjoyed with none other than master distiller, Roberto Seralles. For a historical twist Pusser's Rum, launched in 1655, will be presented by head of rum procurement George Freegard. Angostura will bring a taste of Trinidad to the evening hosted by master distiller John Georgesand. The delights of Cuban's classic Havana Club will be presented by its master blender Asbel Morales Lorenzo. The finale to the evening will be the esteemed Diplomatico providing a taste of South America with former Golden Rum Barrels Awards winner and rum master, Tito Cordero.

Doors will open at 5pm where guests will be greeted with a welcome speech from global rum ambassador and RumFest founder Ian Burrell, followed by an introduction to the rules and regulations of the Guinness World Records. From 6.30pm the world record attempt will begin as guests taste the six rums from some of the world's most revered rum distilleries. This will be followed by an audience Q&A and the presentation of the Guinness World Records certificate. Limited tickets for this one-time-only event are on sale for only £10.
