Festival Rum Bahamas is Just Around the Corner

     .Just a quick Reminder that we have what looks to be a fun rum festival coming real soon in the Bahamas.     Friday February 21st thru Sunday February 23rd you can enjoy a fun and festive event .  
    The event is happening in Fort Charlotte, near Nassau.  Fort Charlotte was named for King George III's wife and the largest of the three forts found around Nassau.   The for has never fired a shot in combat and has a great view of the Nassau Harbor.
"The Bahamas has a lot to offer, more than sun, sand and sea. We wanted to create a festival that showcased aspects of our history that we don't typically celebrate, piracy, rum-running, and how those past events have given birth to our distinct flavours and a culture of appreciation for the art and beauty of rum making." 
Stated Andrea Jackson-Coakley, the marketing partner from the Ministry of Tourism.
     Festival Rum Bahamas is an enticing mixture of local, regional and international rum exhibitors.     During the three day festival there will be product sampling, master classes on rum, bartending and cocktail competitions, as well as Caribbean music and food. Of course there will be the opportunity to buy all that you try.
