Dead Man's Fingers and Spring Classic Festival unite!

Dead Man’s Fingers will be down at the coast this summer for a celebration of live music, surf and ride culture, at Spring Classic Festival in Devon from 1st to 4th June.

Dead Man’s Fingers was born on the Cornish coast in the Rum & Crab Shack in St. Ives nearly a decade ago and ever since then, it has challenged convention, rejected old traditions and brought new and innovative spirits to the table. In June, the brand will celebrate its roots and serve up delicious cocktails, to accompany Devon’s greatest surf festival and live music event.

Over the four-day festival, Dead Man’s Fingers is set to host intimate rum tastings, giving guests the opportunity to delve into their award-winning line-up, starting with its Spiced Rum. The tastings will explore the flavoursome and diverse profiles available with Dead Man’s Fingers from rum to Raspberry Rum Cream Liqueur, showing festival goers how to “give tradition the (Dead Man’s Fingers) Finger.”

Getting in on the surfing action, Dead Man’s Fingers is the official sponsor of the Surf Invitational Competition, where pro surfers from around the world will compete for waves in the waters of Woolacombe Bay. Dead Man’s Fingers will be down on the beach throughout the contest, supporting the surfers and offering tasty refreshments for the audience to try.

The unconventional spirits maker will be present throughout the weekend at Spring Classic, to celebrate their shared passions of all things surf, boarding and music. The full range of Dead Man’s Fingers will be available from the festival's main bar opposite the main stage. Enjoy a rum and coke with friends before headline act Arrested Development, or sip on a Dead Man’s Fingers tequila soda and watch the sunset at Woolacombe Bay, and for a drink on the move while exploring the festival’s coastal adventures, Dead Man’s Fingers will be offering ready to drink cocktail cans.

About Dead Man’s Fingers

Dead Man’s Fingers Rum was born in the Rum & Crab Shack, St. Ives, Cornwall in 2015. Ever since then, the brand has always been about challenging convention and rejecting old traditions in favour of something new.

A few years on from its inception, the brand moved to a bigger home at the Bristol and Bath Rum Distillery. The venue is set over multiple floors, with two bars (boasting one of the largest rum selections in the country) and unique rum school offering.

Focus on experimentation and new flavour combinations has always been at the heart of Dead Man’s Fingers Rum. When creating Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum, the brand went against tradition and experimented with local flavours like Cornish saffron cake, spice, fruit scones and Pedro Ximénez ice cream. The result was a unique Spiced Rum with cinnamon, nutmeg and orange notes.

This focus on experimentation has continued to play a big part in the identity of Dead Man’s Fingers Rum, with the range now offering 15 different variants, from the Original Spiced and White Rum to Mango, Cherry, Passion Fruit and Banana. The range is available to buy from The, Amazon and most major retailers.

About Wavelength’s Spring Classic Festival

After a successful first year, the Spring Classic Festival presented by Wavelength is returning to Woolacombe, North Devon 01-04 June for the second installment of the surf & music festival.

With a music line-up curated to soundtrack a weekend of surfing, nature and action on the North Devon coast, attendees are set for a festival weekend with much more than just music.

The Spring Classic is a celebration of the outdoors, teaming up with the National Trust to offer nature trails, talks and workshops across the weekend, all set to a backdrop of the area’s natural beauty. A proportion of ticket revenue goes directly into restoring biodiversity and priority habitat at the Woolacombe Down site.
