Age Restriction

Leeds Rum Festival is going online, and we’d love for you to join us!

Here’s the deal.

Since June we at Rolling Social Events have been running Sip Alongs – social distance socials for the modern day! They proved such a success we decided to give the Rum Fest the same treatment. The Rum Fest will be hosted by the pros on Zoom – there are some familiar faces to regular Rum Festers who enjoy our masterclasses. We will send you a fulsome sample pack of 16 (count ‘em!) lovely rums AND a premade cocktail, a selection of soft drinks for mixing courtesy Schweppes/Coca-Cola, and you get a link to join us on Saturday 19 th September at 7.30pm – 9.30pm.

We have put together an absolute bargain of a sample pack.

It will contain:

Fino Daiquiri made with Takamaka White

THEN 25ml each of: Takamaka Coco – Takamaka St Andre – Diplomatico Mantuano – Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva – Single Vintage 2005 – Veritas – Trois Rivieres – Clairin Communal – Damoiseau Arrangés Pinepple & Vanilla – Damoiseau Arrangés Mango & Passion Fruit – Companero Elixir – Companero Gran Reserva – Black Tears Cuban Spiced – La Progresiva 13 – plus two from Plantation Rums tbc

Speakers, presenters, and heads full of knowledge and fun are:

Jody Monteith from Highball Brands – font of all knowledge on the tantilising Takamaka.

Jon Lister – European Ambassador for the distinctive Diplomatico

Dean McGregor – UK Rum Ambassador for Speciality Brands bringing you
a bit of Veritas, Trois Rivieres and Clairin

Danilo Grenci – Brand Ambassador for the delicious Damoiseau Rhums#

Joshua Singh – Brand Owner of Companero Rums

Peter Thornton – Brand Ambassador for Black Tears Cuban Rum and La Progresiva Cuban Rum (no more Spanish from us).

Paul McFadyan – Brand Ambassador for the perfect Plantation Rum, a regular at Leeds Rum Festival, Paul is yet to confirm which of his delights he will bring. But we know they’ll be great.

If you already have a ticket for the Rum Fest it is valid for this event.

What you need to do if you have LRF tickets: 
If you want to join us email us at with the name your tickets were booked in and your postal address. If you don’t want to join us, we won’t be *too* offended. Just let us know by midnight on Monday 24th August and we will issue you with a full refund.
We look forward to being able to get together and dance and sing again but in the meantime, we really hope you will join us and support us as we work our way through some crazy times.


This year, as LRF couldn't happen in 3D, we have taken it online!
