Rum Renaissance 2012: Rumming Through the Days

Ron Botran VIP Party at the Soho Beach House

The places were set for beautiful things...and beautiful things there were. Botran's premium rums including the Añejo Reserva and Añejo Solera 1893 were showcased, shaken and served in style, kicking off Rum Renaissance 2012! Let's have a closer look...

Punches and fine cocktails were in order. Smartly dressed gentlemen served their craft. Smiles followed...

Robert and Robin Burr
The dense foliage couldn't camouflage the good times. The family behind the festival, Robin and Robert Burr, indicate their approval (see photo). Live music, an array of appetizers and hand-rolled cigars were some of the highlights.

Rum and spirits aficionados travel from far distances all around the world to experience this week of rum in Miami. Dirk Becker, owner of the famous RumClub Berlin and host of German Rum Festival, enjoying himself (see photo). Rum is fun!

The After Party at Broken Shaker

The after party with Ron Botran continues at one of Miami's hottest new bars called Broken Shaker. Brought to you by the masters of mixology at Bar Lab, this speakeasy speaks classic cocktails fluently. Ron Botran gave each cocktail an accent of its own finishing out the first day of events. For those who didn't get their fill of Broken Shaker, the shaking continued on day 2.

Ron Zacapa VIP Party at Broken Shaker

The VIP experience continued with Ron Zacapa at Broken Shaker. Spectacular punches with this amazing rum filled glasses for that hand to mouth duty we all love. Aged near heaven, the succulent nectar of Ron Zacapa did not disappoint.

Adam Kanter & Paul Yellin

The entourage of fine chocolates, Ron Zacapa cocktails and smokey aromas of grilled meat sparked interest from some of the best in the business. Yum! Adam Kanter, owner of the award winning Rum Bar in Philadelphia and Paul "Rhum Chef" Yellin narrow in on their target.

The western hemisphere's largest rum festival begins!

  1. A party with fine wine is already good enough. A party about fine wine is definitely a blast.
