Established in 2006 by Ian Burrell the U.K RumFest has been a pioneer in elevating the popularity, awareness, and quality of rum in England. Created in 2007 by Federico Hernandez, the US RumLab promotes rum as a lifestyle and educates consumers and spirit industry members. Now the organizations are collaborating to present the first Miami Rum Congress taking place February 8-9, 2019.
Miami Rum Congress founders Ian Burrell and Federico Hernandez have over 25 years of combined expertise in the international rum industry and have brought industry experts together for rum festivals and seminars in London, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and San Juan.
The boutique style event will showcase a handful of brands that emphasise on the education and premiumization of the rum category. The rum congress will be at the Shane Center (6500 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33141)
The USA is considered one of the most important countries for the entire rum industry. Before the American Revolution, rum was the most consumed spirit, and now an awakening is occurring.
Our team is the producers of the Puerto Rico Rum Festival “Taste of Rum”, California, New York and Chicago Rum Festival. All events are attracting hundreds of people from trade, rum aficionados, tourists & locals.
The Miami Rum Congress will be divided in two days.
1. Friday, Sept 8th – Rum education program design to elevate the knowledge of rum aficionados & industry professionals.
2. Saturday, Sept 9th – Rum Tasting event and rum seminars
