According to Alexandra Lynch, creator and visionary of the festival, the reasons for creating a festival of this kind were clear. “The Bahamas has a lot to offer, more than sun, sand and sea. We wanted to create a festival that showcased aspects of our history that we don’t typically celebrate, piracy, rum-running, and how those past events have given birth to our distinct flavours and a culture of appreciation for the art and beauty of rum making. ”

Festival Rum Bahamas is an enticing mixture of local, regional and international rum exhibitors. During the three day festival there will be product sampling, master classes on rum, bartending and cocktail competitions, as well as Caribbean music and food. Of course there will be the opportunity to buy all that you try. The festival organizers are promising that the 2014 Festival Rum Bahamas will be regionally competitive and offer a unique cultural experience for Bahamians and visitors.

 

Operations Director Catherine Chisnall-Mitchell added “We will have some of the world’s finest rum on offer at the festival; they represent the Caribbean region at its best. We are especially proud to have the Watling’s Distillery on board. To compliment these great products we plan to create an entertainment package of equal value. Prepare to eat, to dance and to have three days of purely distilled enjoyment.”

 

 

The blue ribbon event of the festival will be 2014 Mixologist Competition, where the best bartenders in the region will compete to win gold, silver or bronze medals for the best rum cocktail.
