Taste of Rum … More than just Rum

Mark your calendars! Taste of Rum 2020 will be held at Bahia Urbana in Old San Juan on 7 March 2020.

Puerto Rico is the self-proclaimed Rum Capital of the World, so what better place to come and enjoy the best Puerto Rican rums?

It is that time of the year again — the Rums of Puerto Rico is holding its 11th Taste of Rum event on March 7, 2020. Taste of Rum is the official Rum Festival of Puerto Rico, dedicated to promoting high-end Puerto Rican rums to the world.

Taste of Rum

As in years past, there will be rum to sample, rum-related seminars and competitions, as well as live music to get your rum-infused body moving. This festival is all about Puerto Rican rum. Locals and visitors alike can take this opportunity to try all the different brands and types of Puerto Rican rum. A few changes are coming for 2020- A Premium Tasting tent, for a limited number of VIP, some artisans will be set up, more tasting tents for rums/cocktails, restaurants and food trucks will have their food available for a small price.

Taste of Rum

The event takes place under tents along the waterfront park at Bahia Urbana in Old San Juan “Muelle 8 ” on Google maps. You will have hours to enjoy unlimited rum tastings from the many Puerto Rican rum brands. There will also be a number of local restaurants participating, making all sorts of foods for your enjoyment (at an additional price).

Throughout the evening, there are rum seminars happening all evening long, and there will be live music and shows on 2 stages. Then, for some fun, there may be mixology and flair tending competitions.

Taste of Rum

In past years, over 3000 have people attended this event, with almost half of them being happy tourists. I bet it will be even more this year, so get your tickets soon. Of course, with all this rum, this is an adult-only event — you must be at least 18 years old to enter. You can buy tickets at the door, or online.

El Festival Taste of Rum estuvo excelente, la unica queja que tengoo es que el sabado 20 y luego de hacer una fila de 45 minutos me indicaron que se habian acabado los obsequios que estaban otorgando en la carpa de Rums of Puerto Rico. Luego de pagar la entrada al evento me quede sin el obsequio de la gorra gris y negra que estaban regalando, podrian conseguirme una????? Gracias anticipadas por su ayuda.
