The Manchester Rum festival certainly has made an impact in it’s first 2 years. The event is organised by Dave Marsland, the Drinks Enthusiast, who certainly promotes Rum. As well as holding this event he co-owns Riddles Emporium and Marigot bay Cafe and bar, both in Altrincham (check out Quality Bars)
The last event was held in Manchester Cathedral and a host of brands were present. There are no masterclasses but you can get cocktails, plenty of samples and the diversity of the Rum category is represented well.
Entry prices are very reasonable and the event is fun and informative. We are looking forward to 2019 already!
