Where's all the rum gone? To Earl's Court, for the world's biggest rum festival.

RumFest is back in London for its 13th year, but don't expect anything unlucky to come of it. How could there be, with over 400 of the most diverse and rare rums from across the globe, just waiting to tickle your tongue.

2019 feels like the ideal time to celebrate rum, a spirit that's been catching up on London's current king: gin. The big boys of London rum cocktails will be in attendance — such as bars Laki Kane and Trailer Happiness. Watch their mixologists whip up a boozy storm.

For those who like some intellectual stimulation while sipping a daquiri, there are talks on offer too, including one from Jamaica's oldest rum estate, Worthy Park. And to make sure the rum doesn't go straight to your head, there's food available too, from Caribbean inspired Heart & Soul food buffet.

RumFest runs from 19-20 October, at Earl's Court's ILEC Conference Centre. Tickets start at £42.50.
