Leeds Rum Festival will return for its fifth year this September. Founded by Leeds bar industry stalwarts Sam Fish and Bruce Lerman, the event is open to trade and consumer visitors, and provides opportunities for both learning and general merriment.
Last year, over 30 rum brands and 100 expressions were available for sampling, with rum producers and brand ambassadors on hand to answer rum-related questions. Rum and rum-cocktail masterclasses led by category experts round out the education side of things, with street food, DJs, and Rum Shack drinks providing sustenance and entertainment.
We will update this story with specific details of the 2020 event as they are released. You can also follow Leeds Rum Festival on Facebook.
