St. Nicholas Abbey Wins at Rum Fest UK 2012
In 2012, St. Nicholas Abbey returned to London’s annual RumFest for its fifth consecutive year, having first showcased its premium rum at the event in 2008. Hosted at the Excel Centre in October 2012, RumFest is the world’s premier rum exhibition, providing the ultimate rum experience for thousands of enthusiastic aficionados and participating trade members.
St. Nicholas Abbey shone at the 2-day exhibition, culminating with outstanding success at the Golden Barrel Awards & Dinner, winning both Distillery of the Year 2012 and Best Boutique White Rum. These prestigious awards reflect the Estate’s passion for quality and its mission to create uniquely premium artisan rums. The Warren Family, owners of St. Nicholas Abbey, are encouraged by the award for Best Boutique White Rum, a product that has only recently been brought to market. It was also awarded the Bronze Medal at the 2012 International Wine and Spirits Competition in London, the highest medal awarded in its category.
Rum Fest UK is the world's premier rum festival and the largest of its kind held over the course of three days, it serves to showcase rums from across the globe, bringing together the industry's finest producers, experts and consumers. The event has influenced the creation of other notable rum events held in Miami, Berlin, Paris and other locales.
