2017 Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival Returns to Barbados

     We got word today that the 2017 Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival is returning to its origin.  The island of Barbados will be hosting the festival for 2017.  It will be held at the Rockley Golf and Country Club on December 9th from 2 pm until 10 pm.

     The Caribbean Rum and Beer festival is coming back to Barbados.  After years hosted in Grenada and St. Maarten.   “The first Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival was held in Barbados back in 2010 and after discussions with local stakeholders we feel the time is perfect to bring our unique event back home,” said Barbados based Festival Director Cheryl Collymore.  The festival is a rum and beer trade expo, with distilleries, breweries and distributors using the event to showcase their products.

     “Companies are constantly searching for cost effective ways to reach targeted customers and the Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival provides an excellent platform,” she said.  The venue is the Rockley Golf & Country Club, meaning the inclusion of a festival golf tournament, along with product sampling, seminars, chocolate pairings, a bartending competition and a cigar and rum area, among others.

     “The Caribbean and in particular Barbados is the home of rum and we produce some world class quality rums and beers,” said Festival Operation Director Dr. Glyn Williams. “The Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival is a way to invite people from all over the world to come to Barbados and learn more about the history, variety and versatility of these amazing products.”
