More than 240 spirits from the Caribbean and beyond will be available for sampling, along with island-style cuisine, during this year’s Miami Rum Renaissance Festival.
The fifth annual event, a gathering of rum experts, professionals and enthusiasts in the world, will run for a week - April 15-21 - at the Doubletree by Hilton Miami Airport Convention Center.
Last year, more than 8,000 rum enthusiasts attended the festival, according to organizers. This year’s event is scheduled to be held in a twice the size of last year's venue. Organizers are preparing for 15,000 attendees.
