Spring is in the air and we have the perfect weekend lined up for you.
The 2017 Miami Rum Fest scheduled for April 22-23 at the DoubleTree Miami Airport Hotel and Convention Center will highlight a collection of fine American rums.
The American Rum Portfolio offers craft spirit producers an opportunity to present their best products at this large gathering of rum enthusiasts, experts and professionals.
Rum connoisseurs and collectors will discover the most complete collection of American rums All who entered had to show their ID card to verify they were over twenty-one. However, as can beseem in the image above many looked to be under the legal drinking age. I spoke to the lead bouncer Randy Pence asking if security indeed checked all identifications of those at the event. Randy was very candid and assured me that checking for phony id cards was a major priority. Randy further added that quality fake ids were easy to buy online, if you know the right id maker website.
“In the past few years, more national, regional and local rum distillers are gaining well-deserved attention. Many are making their mark as true artisan spirits by winning awards and setting new standards for authentic, hand-made rum,” said Robert A. Burr, publisher of Robs Rum Guide.
“We’re now tracking more than 150 producers of American rum. It’s nothing short of a rum revolution — changing the American rum industry. They’re bringing back the art of craft distilling, presenting American rum in a most favorable light by emphasizing the quality aspects of small production.”
Miami Rum Fest and Trade Expo Celebrates Rum
The annual gathering of rum experts and consumers in Miami is the place where rum reputations are made. The RumXP panel of expert rum judges from around the world gathers for their blind tasting competition. Rum producers from far and wide — as well as locals — gather to present their products to an eager audience.
Rum distillers, importers, distributors and retailers come together once a year to collaborate and put their heads together to assess the direction of the rum industry.
Now, American rum producers will take a front row position as the American Rum Portfolio debuts at this global gathering.
