Rum Royale is an introduction to, and celebration of, all things rum. Over the past decade, rum, a category with a deep history and a loyal global fan base, has quickly evolved from a budget-friendly mixer into a premium spirit. Whether you’re new to rum or a life-long rum aficionado, our goal is to show a whole new way to look at rum and the thriving community with rum culture at its epicentre. Take a look at our five pillars that help shape who we are and what we aim to do.


Toronto Festival What could be better than sampling the diversity of rum? Pairing that rum with regional cuisine, all the while enjoying entertainment from the great rum-producing areas of the world. Our inaugural festival is Toronto's first premium rum festival and kicks off on Friday, May 22nd with a rum dinner, followed by our tasting day, which will be held on Saturday, May 23rd at Locomotive Hall, Steam Whistle Brewing.  

We close off the festival on Sunday, May 24th with a day of seminars for those who want to delve a little deeper. From keynote speakers and panels to a special documentary screening, we will shed light on rum, its fascinating history and its current rise in the spirit world.


Throughout the weekend we’ll also be showcasing the hottest bars in Toronto with a cocktail competition and exciting pop-up events around the city!
