One must celebrate when one has the opportunity. A sentiment familiar to most people, and one I have really taken to heart. Thus, at the end of April Im off to Miami for the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, where the rum experts are meeting up to taste over 100 different rums. Add to that a few cool parties Miami-style of course, all in the name of the liquid gold! Following that, Ill hop over to Jamaica for a quick stop to inspect destilleries ;)
On October 8 & 9, 2011, I am hosting my very own rum festival, the GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL where there will be a number of things to try as well. The current count is at approx. 200 Rums! Right after that, the BCB - Bar Convent Berlin takes place on October 10 & 11, 2011! With all these things going on, Berlin has certainly reached a new level! Yet another few days later off to London, where the UK Rumfest beckons.

Rum is liquid history, lively, passionate, traditional... to name all the things rum can be could be continued ad finitum. It is much more fun, however, to experience it all yourself, to smell, taste, and feel....
