The Rum Festival Edinburgh

About The Rum Festival Edinburgh

The UK's first travelling Rum Festival is back for year 2 and this time we're hitting Leith in Edinburgh!

We’re back with even more Caribbean and Cuban sunshine bringing rum, cocktails, food and music from around the globe.

We will be showcasing over 100 different rums including new and exclusive rums, producers and a variety of entertainment.

On arrival you will be greeted by one of our Rumun’s; handed your Rum Festival glass (a gift for you to take home!) and a brochure, full of information on all the rums you can try, fun facts about each of our suppliers and the suggested garnish to compliment your drink.
You will need to purchase drinks vouchers to taste our rum’s, these will be available from a stand in the main hall. The drinks vouchers all include a mixer of your choice and fresh garnish.

Throughout the event there will be live entertainment and dancing; talks from rum industry experts, tasty food to buy and above all lots of fun. If you’re new to rum don’t worry, our friendly Rumun’s will recommend a few to get you going or tell you all about their favourites.

THIS EVENT IS STRICTLY FOR OVER 18 YEARS OLD. (YOU MAY BE ASKED FOR ID)

WE CALL OUR TEAM RUM’UNS – ”RUM’UN – RUM ONE… SOMEONE WHO IS A BIT QUIRKY; WHO IS A LITTLE BIT NAUGHTY BUT STILL EMINENTLY LOVEABLE!”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Rum Festival Edinburgh are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
