From April 15th thru 17th,  Rum producers from all over the world came to the 2016 Miami Rum Festival & Trade Expo to introduce new products, meet with importers and distributers, buyers and retailers, as well as consultants on the distillation, packaging and marketing of rum worldwide. Presented by Rob’s Rum Guide, this event truly shows how rum is experiencing a Renaissance of appreciation. Savvy consumers come to the grand tasting events to discover a truly remarkable range of fine rums from the Caribbean region, as well as North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia — and from the furthest reaches of the world.

For consumers who know #RumIsFun, the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival is one of the world’s premier international rum events, presenting a unique and exciting range of great rums to be sampled. For professionals, this is the world’s largest and most important trade exposition for rum. Attendees enjoyed a grand three-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! New this year was the VIP Tasting Bar where you can purchase tickets for rare, vintage, limited edition luxury rums from private collections.
