Hong Kong Rum Fest 2016
The two-day Hong Kong Rum Festival is back for its fourth annual run, bringing an even thicker list of rums to the SAR: a staggering 151 different types of the liquor with a few being brought to Hong Kong for the first time. There’ll be a host of special events and masterclasses, including an introduction to rums from all over the world (plus apparently, a little bit of pirate talk) by Ian Burrell, Global Rum Ambassador (May 27); a cocktail flairing demo; and a talk on Indonesian rums by brand specialist Sam Jeveons and Potato Head Group’s Dre Masso. Still not got enough rum? There’ll be after-parties on both days at
Tiki bars Honi Honi and Mahalo. May 27-28, noon-8pm. Mahalo Tiki Lounge, 29/F, QRE Plaza, 202 Queen’s Rd. East, Wan Chai, facebook.com/ rumfestivalhongkong.
