Rum fans rejoice! The 2018 instalment of Sugarcane Sunday is set to take place on April 8.
For the first time since the Rum Rebellion, the annual event will be held at Circular Quay, featuring a popup rum market where those attending can taste and buy rum, Hawaiian shirts, tiki mugs and Caribbean and rum paraphernalia.
The crew from Lost Luau will be running a dedicated tiki cocktail bar serving up all the rum classics like the Daiquiri, Mai Tai and Piña Colada.
A vast number of rum brands will be present, giving festival goers the chance to learn and chat about the different origins and styles of rum with rum presentations held every hour by people representing some of the world's most well-known rum distilleries.
The ethos behind Sugarcane Sunday is to provide a festival to demonstrate and celebrate the island lifestyle, history, and culture of rum. Bring your finest shirts, get tropical, enjoy some tiki cocktails with tropical tunes playing in the background. A Sunday Funday if we've ever heard of one.
Get along to Sugarcane Sunday, which kicks off from 1pm on Sunday April 8 at Customs House Bar in Macquarie Place at the Marriott Hotel, Sydney.
Tickets are currently available through Eventbrite.
