Win VIP tickets for the amazing Appleton Estate Rum Bus!

The Appleton Estate Rum Bus
Hop on board

Here’s one bus you won’t want to miss. It’s the one with the distinctive Appleton Estate scroll on the side. This is nothing like your average Double-Decker. For one thing, it will be on time and for another, it will be kitted out with rum. Yes rum. And plenty of it.

The bus itself is a thing of beauty. Lovingly restored from a 1960s Bristol original it’s just like the ones that used to ferry folks around Jamaica back in the day. So what could be better to showcase Appleton Estate, Jamaica’s finest rum? The Rum Bus will be making its first stop at Red Gallery Market on Thursday 1st August where it will stay for two fun-filled nights during which time Phonica Records will be providing the tuneage and Background Bars will be mixing some killer drinks. There’ll be some of the finest Street Food that London has to offer too, not to mention posh chocs from Royal Warrant holders Charbonnel et Walker..

When it moves off it will be on a bus route like no other with talks, tastings and a whole lot of money-can’t-buy experiences. Stops confirmed so far include Lounge on the Farm, Foodies Festival Edinburgh, Foodies Feast Battersea and London Cocktail Week. And there are more to follow.

Win VIP tickets for the first stop

We have a pair of V.I.P. tickets to give away for the first stop on the route at Red Gallery Market on Thursday 1st August. Included in the prize are three fab Appleton Estate cocktails and a tasty meal for each person. All you have to do is drop us a line here with ‘Rum Bus’ as the ‘Subject’ and tick the box ‘Keep in touch’ (we don’t share your details with anyone else).

You only have a day to enter as our competition closes 4pm Wednesday 31 July. So get on board.
