Sip some of the world's finest rums neat, and in cocktails devised by legendary London bartenders.

There's no more superlative slurp in the summer months than rum — and here's an experience where you can choose from over 200 of the world's very finest.

Rum Show — happening 22-23 July at Glaziers Hall, London Bridge — is your chance to drink a dazzling range of sugar cane spirit labels, and appreciate just what a wondrous, versatile drink rum is.

Various bottles of rum

Sly Augustin and Georgi Radev from top London rum bars, Trailer Happiness and Laki Kane — plus Dawn Davies MW of The Whisky Exchange — will lead you through this spirited celebration, by way of tastings, talks and masterclasses.

In all, there are 40+ rum exhibitors — also joined by rum experts, industry bodies and personalities. Every one of them is on hand to give you insight into how and why the popularity of rum has EXPLODED over the past few years (as well as the opportunity to sample their wares, of course).

Hundreds of rum barrels

And as for those tastings. WELL. There are endless opportunities to discover your new favourite rums neat or on ice. You can also get your chops around vibrant cocktails mixed by Georgi and Sly themselves (and if you've been to Trailer Happiness/Laki Kane you'll know these folks are a dab hand at mixing up some liquid loveliness.) Steal the recipes, buy a few bottles, and become an expert mixologist in your own home this summer.

All tickets to Rum Show also include a complimentary Cocktail Token and Dream Tot token which allows you a free taster of one of the rarest, most sought after rums at the show — worth more than £250 a bottle!

We'll certainly drink to that. 🍹
