In the last few years the situation has improved significantly. Any of the three market leaders are offering over a hundred rums.
Like others around the world, the Hong Kong Rum Festival is an opportunity for rums makers and importers to present their products and for buyers to sample a number of rums several of them available for the first time in Hong Kong.
It is also an opportunity for the visitors to meet important figures of the industry like Global Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell, Alexandre Gabriel (maker of Plantation rums), Claudine Neisson-Vernant (Rhum Neisson), Liam F. Costello (from Fiji Rum Co), Mickael Derunes (New Grove) and yours truly.
This year expect to see a plethora of rums and if you are lucky you may bump into Richartd Seale (Master Blender of Doorly rum) or Robert A. Burr (the man behind the Rob's Rum Guide and the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival).
ENJOY THE 3RD HONG KONG RUM FESTIVAL!
