Washington DC– August 8, 2017. Rum Day DC is back this year with “Rum This Block!” Rum Day DC is an annual celebration in its sixth year which affords a mix of the rum industry’s specialty and top brands, consumers, the rum-curious and enthusiasts alike. Technically the holiday takes place on August 16th. Rum Day DC celebrations provide numerous brands with a unique opportunity to educate consumers while promoting and celebrating the wide variety of flavors and versatility offered by the sugar cane based spirit (although honey and molasses based rums have also been introduced).
The 6th Annual Rum Day DC will host two block parties for the 2017 Celebration, one in Baltimore on Saturday, August 12th from 2-7pm and Washington, DC on Sunday, August 13th from 2-7pm. “Rum This Block.” Baltimore will take place at R House as Rum Day takes over the R House garage with rum infused everything! “Rum This Block,” DC will be located on 14th Street at the Whitman Walker lot and will feature the city’s top mixologists, unlimited samples and cocktails and unlimited BBQ from nonother than Federalist Pig!
Rum Day DC’s Rum partner lineup includes Papa’s Pilar, Brugal, Cruzan, St. James Rhum, Cotton & Reed, Lyon Distilling, Picaroon Rum, Bacoo Rumand Sans Rum. Each event will highlight the various brands of these sponsors, alongside participating bars, restaurants and vendors. Once again, this year we’ve partnered with the United States Bartenders Guild (DC and Baltimore) to mix up magic featuring our Rum partners so our lineup of cocktails and punches will be epic thanks to mixologists such as Glendon Hartley for Service Bar, Al Thompson from Bar Mini and Aaron Joseph from R House Baltimore.
