TheRumLab.com is proud to celebrate the 6th New York Rum Festival & Congress.  The boutique-style event will showcase a handful of brands that emphasize the education and premiumization of the rum category.  The rum festival will be at the Metropolitan Pavilion - 125 W 18th St, New York, NY 10011

The USA is considered one of the most important countries for the entire rum industry. Before the American Revolution, rum was the most consumed spirit, and now an awakening is occurring.

The state of New York by itself is one of the largest rum consumer markets in the USA.

Our team is the producers of the Puerto Rico Rum Festival "Taste of Rum", Miami Rum Congress, California, New York, LA Rum Fest, San Francisco Rum Fest, and the Chicago Rum Festival. All events are attracting hundreds of people from trade, rum aficionados, tourists & locals.
