The Manchester Rum Festival is back in the city next June and will bring rum brands from around the continents both new and old – including the debut of the world's biggest-selling rum in Tanduay and local newcomers Tameside Distillers, plus the return of rum favourite El Dorado.
The event will firmly place Manchester on the map as a rum destination and welcomes rum fans for a jam-packed day of education, immersion and celebration. This year’s festival heads back to Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel in Piccadilly Gardens after a successful 2021 show.
Featuring expressions from single and multi-distillery producers, to flavour enhanced bottlings, as well as cocktails, traditional food, and music, this is a drinks festival like no other bringing together rum producers and brands, bartenders, spirits enthusiasts, and rum fans.
Hailing from Jamaica and Guyana, contemporary brands such as Streamertail will be showcased for the first time at the event, while local rum brands Tameside Distillery, Diablesse and Salford are also confirmed as exhibitors. Also new to Manchester Rum Festival is the world’s biggest-selling rum, Tanduay.
Guests will have the opportunity to sample first-to-market drinks and take part in immersive experiences as some of the rum industry’s most highly respected figures, from distillers large and small, head to Manchester.
Join us at Manchester’s first and only dedicated and official rum festival, featuring a whole-host of rums from across the world, cocktails and food to enjoy and live music in one of Manchester’s 4* hotels, Mercure in Piccadilly Gardens!*
