Rum

Rum

Rum is made either directly from sugarcane juice or sugarcane by-products. After fermentation and distillation, it becomes a clear liquid that’s aged in oak barrels. The first traces of rum precursors date back to antiquity, but it wasn’t until the 17th century that the first proper distillation of rum took place – there are recorded examples from that time on Barbados, in Brazil, but also on the Swedish warship Vasa that sank in 1628. Around the same time, it became popular in the Royal Navy and, subsequently, among privateers and pirates.

Nowadays, the majority of its production takes place in the Caribbean and Latin America, with regional variations – more or less faithful to the original principles – present in other parts of the world.
