OK, so we are only in November 2017 at the time of writing this, but time really does fly quickly, especially when you are drinking rum 🙂
With that in mind, now is the time to flag up an important date in 2018’s rum calendar: The MANCHESTER Rum Festival.
This will be the second year and if it is even half as good as the first event in 2017, it will be a day to remember.
Here is the official press release.
MANCHESTER RUM FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR ITS SECOND YEAR
Manchester Rum Festival to host round two at Manchester Cathedral.
Manchester Rum Festival, the cities only official festival of its kind for the rum category, is returning Friday 1st June 2018, heading to the iconic Manchester Cathedral.
With the 2017 launch of Manchester’s first dedicated rum festival turning out to be a sell-out success, organizer and owner Dave Marsland of Drinks Enthusiast has turned to the historic venue to house over 75 brands of rum from all over the world, a dedicated cocktail bar for classic signature serves, and the chance to purchase via local independent retailer Riddles Emporium’s on-site shop.
Tickets for the festival go on sale Tuesday 28th November at 9am, priced at £20 for the full session, and will be available via the official Manchester Rum Festival website.
The festival will be a weekend long affair, with the main festival positioned on the Friday 1st, whilst the Saturday and Sunday will offer up a host of rum focused events, tastings and cocktail specials. The return of the rum brunches will see city centre venues collaborate with the likes of Chairman’s Reserve from St Lucia, whilst the cities tiki bars and cocktail haunts will work their Caribbean magic by putting on festival special menus for the weekend.
New Polynesian venue Mahiki will be hosting the official Manchester Rum Festival after-
party on the Friday evening, kick-starting what Dave hopes to be a weekend of rum interaction between novices and enthusiasts across the city.
