Yolo Rum steals the show at the 2014 Summer of Rum
We attended this year’s Summer of Rum Festival August, 16th, 2014 (National Rum Day) in Tampa, Florida. Check out photos from this special event and holiday!
When most think about rum, the mind will drift to sunshine, beaches, music and fun. Not so bad right? Well that is exactly what happened when Yolo Rum attended this years Summer of Rum Festival August, 16th, 2014 in Tampa, Florida. The beautiful Cuban Club in downtown Ybor filled with rum lovers galore to celebrate National Rum Day. From the large outdoor patio party filled with rum huts to the 4th floor Tasting Room, the entire property sported tikki themed bars and island music. The outer streets of the Cuban Club were lined with some of the best food trucks and vendors that Tampa has to offer. Though variety was the theme, the thousands of attendees seemed to be wearing the same smile, and good vibes surrounded all. Through the twenty five or so rums available, Yolo Rum was a smash hit at this years fest with a rum hut on the patio serving “Yolo Razz” and the amazing signature cocktail “Yolo Yummy”. The crowds of people lined up at the Yolo Rum hut seamed to repeat the same phrase one after another “I’ll have a Yummy”! Meanwhile up in the Tasting Room, Yolo sampled hundreds of attendees with the extraordinary 10 year Yolo Gold and remarkable Yolo Silver rum. Rum Bums all agree, this years Summer of Rum Festival was great and put on by an amazing staff of people that were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Next year can’t come soon enough, and needless to say the 8 hour festival was enjoyed to the fullest as it should have been… because hey, You Only Live Once!
