I’ve attended both the 2016 and 2017 Charleston Rum Fest. After a great first year, last year’s festival was a bit of a disappoint where many attendees left early due to a smaller rum selection and lower quality cocktail offerings.
I am always happy to see attendees excited to learn about rum so I have my fingers crossed they can return to the first year’s goodness. The food is always top notch and every rum festival brings a few surprises. While I am not confirmed to attend this year I do hope some of you will check it out on Saturday, June 23, 2018.
