10 years German Rum Festival, 10 years rum from all over the world, 10 years passion and dedication!
When we took the first steps 10 years ago and started planning the first GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL, we could not have imagined what would one day emerge from this small idea. We wanted to organize a small festival for everyone who cared about rum and to give this incredibly diverse world of rum a stage. It was about more than just the pure drinking pleasure. It was about the Caribbean attitude towards life, the get-together with friends and family and, above all, the joy of the moment.
Today, 10 years later, the GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL is one of the most important events in the rum world. Bigger, Higher, Further was never our concern, nevertheless, or maybe because of that, the GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL is today the biggest fair in the world in the field of Rum, Rhum & Cachaca.
Despite the special circumstances, the 10th GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL was a complete success. On both days of the event, a total of 2484 visitors were able to explore the world of rum at 34 booths. The feedback from visitors and exhibitors was consistently positive, with the quality of the fair receiving particular praise. All guests who could not or did not want to visit the festival in person had the opportunity to visit all tastings and the exhibition booths digitally via livestream.
9TH GERMAN RUM FESTIVAL – THANK YOU!
It was a (summer) party for us!
The 9th German Rum Festival is over and leaves a lasting impression on all of us. There was a new appointment, and none of us really knew what was going to happen there in the beginning. But thanks to a great community of friends, acquaintances, bon vivants and family we spent a wonderful weekend with good rum at Caribbean temperatures in Berlin
On more than 5,000 m² of the STATION Berlin 63 exhibitors gathered with more than 140 brands and 500 bottlings from all over the world to convince and enchant each of the 4400 visitors.
Next year we will continue, then with our first big anniversary. 10 years – in words: ten! – it is then since the first idea, the first drafts and the anticipation that has remained until today. We never thought that our little festival would develop like that and it’s one of the biggest in the world. That’s why we would like to mention a special one, the cornerstone of the German Rum Festival: our team of family, friends and helpers that supports us throughout the year. Without our little crazy family we would not be able to invest so much passion and passion to create moments that will be remembered for a long time to come, for the visitors and exhibitors as well as for ourselves. And that’s what we want thanks!
We were able to capture some of these moments in pictures and films – enjoy browsing!
The 9th German Rum Festival Overview
CONDE DE CUBA rum is harvested, distilled, aged and bottled in a small town in the province of Las Tunas, in southeastern Cuba. Here there is a perfect climate to grow the native sugar cane “Medialuna”. All production takes place within the plantation. The distillery “The Ron Sevilla Factory”, a sugar factory and the storage cellars are located here. The distillery has existed since 1946 and employs about 25 people who can produce up to 5,500 bottles a day. The rums of CONDE DE CUBA are 100% handmade.
In addition to the continuous bottlings of the Rum Artesanal rum line from Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Central America, hand-picked single barrels from the rum-producing countries of this earth are bottled. In addition to particularly rare or already closed distilleries, rums also find their way into the bottle that are particularly impressive and very rarely available due to their high ester content.
Santos Dumont spent his childhood among coffee, sugar cane, from which rum and cachaça were distilled, and the latest inventions to make the most of the plantation’s production. The farm machinery fascinated him from an early age. He often rode the farm’s steam tractor or steam locomotive.
Once feared as Spain’s privateer, Santo Christo wanted to do penance for his actions on behalf of the Spanish crown. With heart and courage, he headed for the local governor in every port and negotiated for the release of slaves as well as the condemned, who were usually treated inhumanely for stealing food.
