Before the American Revolution, rum—that most sweet and potent nectar of distilled sugarcane juice—was the most-consumed spirit in the USA. The diehard enthusiasts of The Rum Lab aim to put this liquid joy back on the throne with the 3rd Annual MidWest "Chicago" Rum Fest. Here's what liquor fans, rum aficionados, and sea-shanty singers can expect from the fest:
- The Rums: Each guest receives a complimentary tasting snifter and sample tickets, each valid for a quarter-ounce pour of neat rum or 1.5 ounces of a single cocktail blend.
- The Seminars: 3 seminars will take place. For example, Global Brand Ambassador Ian Burrell will do a master class, Master distiller and blender Richard Seale will be teaching about key attributes of rum.
- Extra Perks: Admission also includes a food coupon.
