RumFest NY presents +80 Rums, Rhums, Rons & Cachacas from Around the World Fri Oct 28, 2:00 AM ET

(PRWEB) October 28, 2005 -- Come and pick your own luscious fruit at RumFest in NYC. From Cruzan sample raspberry, mango, coconut, pineapple, orange, banana & citrus rums plus vanilla and their most lush of all, Rum Cream.

Put some cream in my Coffee-rum, that is, from Brinley Gold rum, which also brings orange spice, vanilla and coconut rums from St. Kitts.

It’s apple-picking season and Bacardi has already prepared their newest flavor, Bacardi Apple rum, just for you. Right around the corner is Thanksgiving, a great time to pair your favorite bird with some cranberry rum from Prichard’s.

If it’s sipping you’re in to, let RumFest inspire you with Cruzan’s Estate rum Collection, Diplomatico Venezuelan rum, Ron Barcelo Dominican rum, Traveller’s One Barrel rum from Belize, Prichard’s Fine rum from Tennessee and, from Rums of Puerto Rico, Captain Morgan Private Stock and Ron Barrilito 3 Stars rums. (Tres Estrellas).

Don Q brings their Cristal rum, which you might mix up in a Mojito or other cocktail.

Mystery enshrouds Oronoco, which makes its debut this month. But, we suspect it’s from somewhere in South America, as is the portfolio of the finest collection of Cachaca’s available in the US, from Excalibur Enterprise.

Whether you choose to make your own caipirinha with Beleza Pura Cachaca or just let it flow from their painstakingly prepared Beleza Pura Caipirinha, you’ll be astounded by the quality of the cachacas in this collection.

From Santa Catarina Island off Brazil’s southern coast comes Armazem Vieira cachaca, with 3 dignified selections: ‘Esmeralda’ Solera 4 Year Old, ‘Rubi’ Solera 8 Year Old and ‘Onix’ 16 Year Old. GRM employs methods that have remained unchanged for more than three centuries and produces world-class cachacas on its farm, Fazenda dos Verdes, in the state of Minas Gerais, noted as Brazil’s finest cachaca- and gastronomy-producing region. GRM’s Silver Small Batch 2 Year Old cachaca earned Playboy Magazine’s Number 1 rating.

Cachaca Rochinha is one of many premium agricultural products of the Cachoeira Farm in Rio de Janeiro’s beautiful Paraiba Valley. Built circa 1717 and named for the abundance of water and waterfalls on its lands, Excalibur Enterprise has selected two of their finest offerings, the Single Barrel 5 Year Old, notably mellow with a warm smoky flavor and the Single Barrel 12 Year Old, exceptionally complex, with a palate that is reminiscent of the lush, smoky, peaty single malts of Scotland’s Islay. Only 1,200 bottles per year will make it to the US shores.

Tales of kill-devil, rumbullion or however one might refer to it, the origin and history of Rum, Rhum, Ron & Cachaca—was no tea party. Authors Ian Williams and David Broom bring you their latest books on the subject.

Ian Williams, Nation correspondent, documents the etymological origins of rum—“kill-devil” is one especially pungent early name for the stuff, in his book RUM; A Social and Sociable History of the Real Spirit of 1776

David Broom, award-winning drink writer (Drink! Never Mind the Peanuts; Handbook of Whisky, Spirits & Cocktails; The Connoisseur’s Guide to Whisky, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon) presents RUM, which will be on-sale with several signed copies available for bidding at the Silent Auction, benefiting the Sky Ranch Foundation.

On Monday night, November 14, taste from among 80 different presentations of the finest rums, rhums, rons and cachacas including Starr African Rum, Cockspur Rum, Zacapa Rum, Ron Botran Rum, Rhums Clement, Sea Wynde Rum, Goslings Rum, Fazenda Mae de Ouro Cachaca, Foursquare Spiced Rum, Doorly’s Rum, La Favorite Rhum, Rhum Neisson, E.S.A. Field Rum, Inner Circle Rum, R.L. Seale Rum, & Velvet Falernum Liqueur. Judge your favorite new cocktails at our Cocktail Challenge, feast on Fajitas, sway to soothing rhythms, learn from Rum Expert Ed Hamilton, Ministry of Rum, bid on the finest selection of rums and other items at our Silent Auction and more, at LQ in NYC.

For each ticket sold, we will donate $5 to the Katrina Fund. Goody Bags will be reserved for the first 300 ticket purchasers only.

Hi SimonB,
I'll be there pouring One Barrel. Somehow, we didn't end up in the press release, but that's Ok. One Barrel has always been our little secret.

I went to the Rumfest in San Diego a while back. Some of the rums were very good. Personally, I think that One Barrel is just as satisfying to drink as any of the rums that I tasted then.

I donated a case to the silent auction. If anyone's interested in placing a bid remotely, let me know and I'll find out if that can be done.
