Rum Renaissance – 2011

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 15, 2011

Last year I was invited to act as one of the International Judges at the 2010 RumXP International Tasting Competition which was held in conjunction with Rum Renaissance 2010. I spent five days soaking up the atmosphere of the festival, and of the city. I enjoyed myself thoroughly, and this year I want to extend a bit of an invitation to those who read and follow my blog to come to Miami this year to join in the festivities of the largest Rum Festival in the World.

This year the festival promises to be even better than last. It has grown from three days in 2009; to five days last year in 2010; to a full seven days of fun and frolic in 2011. The Miami Rum Renaissance Festival 2011 begins with the Zombie Jamboree at the Mai Kai Polynesian Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale on Monday, April 25 from 5 to 7pm. From there, the events include nine VIP Parties, a three-day RumXP International Tasting Competition, various ancillary competitive events including The International Tiki Face Off Competition and the Baritt’s Ginger Beer Cocktail Competition. And it all wraps up with 2 days at the Grand Tasting Finale where there will be seminars, the cocktail competitions, and a Island Lifestyle Showcase.

This is what the Robert Burr, the organizer and prime motivating force behind the Festival, has to say…

Rum is experiencing a Renaissance of appreciation as more savvy consumers discover a truly remarkable range of fine rums from the Caribbean region, North, Central and South America, and around the world.

The Miami Rum Renaissance Festival is one of the world’s premier international rum events, presenting a unique and exciting celebration of the fine arts of distillation, maturing and blending fine cane spirits.

Enjoy a full week of exclusive VIP parties at Miami’s most notable venues, a grand two-day exhibition of the best rum brands, the excitement of the Island Lifestyle Showcase, celebrity seminars, workshops and cocktail competitions, the annual RumXP competition and awards, an opportunity to rub shoulders with dignitaries and notable experts, and more.

Like I said earlier, I am kind of extending an invitation for everyone to come and join me in Miami.  You can purchase tickets for either day (or both) of the Grand Tasting Finale, or you can enjoy the full experience and obtain a VIP Pass and join in the fun of all of the VIP events all week-long. And of course everyone who attends can enjoy beautiful Miami Beach.
