The Rum Festival Edinburgh

About The Rum Festival Edinburgh

Well Edinburgh, you know how to party!

2018's event was crazy so obviously the UK's first and only real travelling Rum Party is coming back!!

Venue: TBC

With more than 100 different rums, cocktails, dancing, new and exclusive rums, sampling from Rum brands and our amazing house bands we are the Rum Festival.

On arrival you will be greeted by one of our Rumun’s; handed your Rum Festival glass (a gift for you to take home!) and a brochure, full of information on all the rums you can try, fun facts about each of our suppliers and the suggested garnish to compliment your drink.

You will need to purchase drinks tokens to taste our rum’s, these will be available from a stand in the main hall. The drinks tokens are £5 each and our '100' Rums include a mixer of your choice and fresh garnish. We think the best way is to buy a card of four for £20 and then go from there, but you can purchase fewer (or more of course!) if you like. We'll also have some premium rums available to try for varied prices.

Throughout the event there will be live entertainment and dancing; tasty food to buy and above all lots of fun. If you’re new to rum don’t worry, our friendly Rumun’s will recommend a few to get you going or tell you all about their favourites.

At our Edinburgh event we’re also bringing our Rum Festival cocktail team, who will mix you some of the tastiest rum cocktails on the planet all just £8 each!

We're also working with some great brands who will be offering samples of their rums and telling you all about their amazing products. A minimum of 10 free samples are included with your ticket!

Get your tickets now and join the Rum Revolution!

There are limited Early Bird discounted tickets for just £10 (plus booking fee), and this year we're offering some upgrades too!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Rum Festival Edinburgh are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
