Rolling Social Events announces first details for the return of Leeds Rum Festival 2022

An eclectic mix of rum brands will once again take over Leeds’ historic Corn Exchange this autumn. Rolling Social Events has had an incredibly busy year, including the launch of Leeds Whisky and Tequila Festivals, not to mention their numerous ‘Sip Along’ tastings and collaborations with local talent as part of Leeds Indie Food Festival.

September will mark Leeds Rum Festival’s sixth year with the 2022 edition set to be its biggest yet. Rolling Social Events is cementing itself as an events company that prides itself not only on showcasing the best in spirits but putting a spotlight on fun and education. Accompanied by music and entertainment, as well as food, Leeds Rum Festival is a premier all-round experience for rum lovers.

Rolling Social is excited to be showcasing its rum sponsor for the festival, Nusa Caña. An Indonisian rum packed full of tropical flavour charged with the attitude and energy of today’s Bali. If you’re lucky enough to try their Tropical and Spiced variations, expect big funky flavours packed with banana, coconut and caribbean spices. Returning sponsor Three Cents create mixers inspired by bartenders for bartenders. Their range of premium sodas will be the ultimate accompaniment for your rum on the day. 

This year will also feature the Monin Rum bar, shaking up some tropical classics and twists such as Piña Coladas, spiced mango rum punches and watermelon daiquiris. Local craft beers will also be available for those that need a break from all the rum!

Tickets will provide access to the festival, where there will be over 100 different rums on show,  Plantation, Takamaka, Nusa Caña, El Dorado and Skipper, to name a select few. Tickets also allow guests to partake in several masterclasses, including talks from Satinago de Cuba, Nusa Caña and Speciality brands. 

Food on the evening will come courtesy of the best of Leeds’ indie street food scene. Live entertainment will be provided by Leeds’ Black Music Festival.

We want to make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever, meaning more rum, more music, more masterclasses and more great street food traders. As ever, the festival is designed around drinking better quality alongside fun and education , and we’re very lucky to be working with another stellar line-up of incredible brands. We look forward to seeing you in September!”
