Why is it worth visiting Wroclaw

15 February 2019 |by admin | 0 Comments | Bez kategorii

Exceptional events need a unique space. Centennial Hall – is the only such place in Wroclaw, which is why we believe that Rum Love Festiwal cannot take place elsewhere.

Centennial Hall is a unique meeting place in Wroclaw.

In 2006, the Centennial Hall along with adjacent areas, the former restaurant pavilion, Pergola and the water basin, was inscribed on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List.

Rum Love Festiwal will take place in the Wroclaw Congress Center for the third time.

In the close neighbourhood, there is also the Wroclaw Multimedia Fountain – the largest installation of this type in Poland and one of the largest in Europe.

Who we are

15 February 2019 |by admin | 0 Comments | Bez kategorii

The most aromatic festival affects Poland with a passion for rum.

Almost 1300 participants, 300 types of alcohol and 35 exhibitors from around the world. Two days of workshops, concerts and an unforgettable atmosphere. This is how it was last year on Rum Love Festiwal in Wroclaw. Organizers decided to affect Poland with rum and make a cyclical event from the festival. What will be a surprise this time?

In the beginning, there was a passion…deep interest in alcohol, which turned into a professional career. Rum Love Festiwal organizers can consider themselves as really lucky people because they do what they love in life.

Rum festivals have been held for years around the world, but in Poland along with tequila and gin, it can be included in niche alcohol categories. However, according to research from the Nielsen Retail Panel in 2015, the value of the rum market in Poland amounted to PLN 91 million. This means that it increased by 10% compared to the previous year. Currently, according to statements of specialists from KPMG, almost 30 percent of Polish consumers, over 11.5 billion people, at least once reach for rum in a year.

Experts predict the steady growth of this segment at the level of 2-3 percent per year. Noting that this is due to the growing popularity of drinks, cocktails (the art of mixology), travel, as well as the influence of blogging alcohol lovers and educating consumers about rum. Therefore, Tomasz Krzyk, Jacek Boniecki and their team decided to organize for the first time in Poland Rum Love Festiwal, which last year has received wide echoes among lovers of various alcohols. This year, as in previous years, the Rum Love Festiwal will take place in the Wroclaw Congress Center, which is located next to the Centennial Hall from the UNESCO list, because exceptional events need a unique space.

The organizers expect about two thousand participants at the festival. There will be MASTERCLASS product training, 34 stands for partners – companies that would like to show their products (in addition to alcohols also cigars). Guests would have an outdoor terrace and a festival shop at their disposal. In the background, guests would hear themed music and in the evening, concerts of music groups in the open air. Last year, the organizers also started the project Rum Love on Tour to break the stereotypes about rum, for two months they visited 30 top cocktail bars and restaurants throughout Poland, where they conducted training. It must be admitted that gentlemen do a great job because the awareness of flavours and aromas of rum in Poland is growing very fast. But that’s not everything what the project’s initiators have up in their sleeve.

The capital of Lower Silesia is also becoming the national capital of rum. The festival organizers have created an amazing place on the cultural map of Wroclaw, where the passion of creation is combined with fashion, classic and the past. BlackBeard Barber & Barrel House is a new place with a classic soul. It is a place where you can buy a limited edition of rum, consult experts and masters in the art of bartending, but also spend time in a unique, industrial space. While the guest enjoys a drink, the barber can take care of hair and beard.

One of the buildings at Teczowa Street is a tribute to the classic. The owners claim that there can be no other place for the craft than the one covered with a thick mantle of history. For a barber, there cannot be any other place, like the atmosphere and space that favours creativity and creating a future from the past.  In BlackBeard, in addition to classical crafts, there are also training, lectures and presentations mainly about rum and whiskey. It is certainly a unique place whose atmosphere you just have to taste.

 

The organizers set themselves the goal of strengthening the awareness and culture of drinking alcohol such as rum or whiskey. Beginning with passion and idea, they started work on the Rum Love Festiwal and BlackBeard. All projects were successful, however, the gentlemen emphasize, that they are just spreading their wings and are not going to rest on their laurels. Since last year they have launched some great projects that do not close only within the borders of Poland. Thanks to such projects, enthusiasts of spirits from around the world thinking “Poland” will see Wroclaw and BlackBeard. We cordially invite you to the Rum Love Festiwal on 7/8 June to Wrocław, as well as to visit the website www.rumlovefestiwal.com and www.blackbeard.com.pl.

Aroma

30 January 2019 |by admin | Comments Off on Aroma | Bez kategorii
  1. Fruit family: family with the larger amount of aroma, also the most developing family among white and older rums. This family consists mostly of small aromatic molecules called esters, alcohols or aldehydes of low molecular weight, which are very volatile and are easily perceptible by the sense of smell. Evolution from white to aged rum allows us to detect 6 subfamilies:
  2. 1* Citrus fruits (lemon, mandarin, orange, grapefruit…)
    2* Exotic fruits (pineapple, banana, mango, passion fruit…)
    3* Cooked fruits (marmalade, jam, fruit paste, jelly…)
    4* Fruit alcohols (brandy, kirsch…)
    5* Dry fruits (figs, plums…)
    6* Nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, coconuts…)

    1. Floral family: floral notes also come from very small molecules, mainly aldehydes divided into 4 subcategories:

    1* Orange flower (neroli, lemongrass, orange blossom…)
    2* Medicinal flowers (linden, hawthorn, verbena…)
    3* Honey (acacia, honey, sugarcane, reed flower…)
    4* Herbal family Herbal notes are the most frequently represented by dry herbs (tea, hay).

    1. Spice family: With spicy notes (pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla…) we deal with heavier molecules, which are more difficult to smell with the nose. Mostly we find them in old rums.
    2. Balsamico family: this family represents camphor, eucalyptus or resin notes. They are very large aromatic molecules with a very low profile of perception.
    3. Empyreumatic family: in this case, we come across heavy molecules with 3 subcategories:

     

    1* Roast (coffee, mocha, chocolate…)
    2* Roasted/burnt (toasted bread, burnt sugar, molasses, burnt wood…)
    3* Licorice 
    These families come from thousands of chemical molecules. Every stage of rum production is responsible for evolution some of those molecules and it gives final outcome by combining different raw materials and production techniques for our rums.

    This also allows us to define three aroma families, which represents which represent rum shortages caused by problems during production, poor fermentation or incorrect temperature during distillation.

    1. Chemical family: Referring to a chemical memo, when rum is oxidized during aging, it contains notes of solvent, ether or oxidized apple. We can also detect an undesirable metallic aftertaste, due to insufficient cleaning of the columns.
    2. Phenolic notes: (ink, phenols, paint …) derived from very high distillation in the column are most often seen as defects, but they can also be the desired result.
    3. Sulfite family: sulfite notes. These molecules are very heavy and must be extracted to a very high degree to remove them from the distillation column. We can find them in rum that has been stored in the barrel for too long. We can recognize these notes by their unpleasant smell, like boiled vegetables, garlic or rot.
    4. Fermentation family: these notes are created only as a result of fermentation problems and we can classify them into four subfamilies

    1* baked goods (bread…)
    2* lactose (milk, butter…)
    3* yeasts
    4* butyric (stale, overly ripe fruits…)
