Rum Is Fun
“Rum is fun. And rum people are fun people.” – Robert Burr
“We’re challenging the mistaken assumption that Rum is ordinary. In fact, Rum is fascinating.”
– Robert Burr
“Rum aficionado and veteran traveler Robert Burr has tasted his way around the globe in search of the best rum. Wanting to share his secret finds, Burr started the Rum Renaissance Festival years ago. This year’s weekend-long event showcases premier rum brands, celebrity seminars, workshops, cocktail competitions, entertainment and more.”
– Forbes Travel Guide
National Public Radio Speaks
“rum reputations are made here… it’s rum’s premiere showcase”
“The event, which drew thousands of rum enthusiasts, has become a central stage for what you might call the rum revolution — the recent ascent of high-end, premium rum. Don’t let the name Rum Fest fool you. It’s not a college beach bacchanal; it’s rum for grown-ups, for people who know that most aged rums today are distilled as masterfully as fine cognacs and single-malt Scotches.”
– National Public Radio
Tasting Rum like a Judge
Tasting rum is a sensory experience that requires some discipline and understanding of the medium to make the most of the opportunity.
A small sip is all you need to understand the flavor profile of rum.
At fine tasting events, quarter ounce samples are served, and that’s more than enough to discern and savor the intent of the producer.
Rum is experiencing a Renaissance of appreciation.
Savvy consumers come to the Rum Renaissance Festival to discover a truly remarkable range of fine rums from the Caribbean region, as well as North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia — and from the furthest reaches of the world.
