Rum

Rum, Ron, Rhum, it is defined in many ways, depending on the geographical origin, but it is always the same sugar distillate.

CURIOSITY: the word ‘rum’ comes from the English word ‘rumble’, which means “pleasant gurgling”. This sound recalls the noise the still makes in the distillation process.

 

Rum originates during English colonialism in India. It is there that English settlers discovered that distilling sugar cane produces a distillate of high quality and high drinkability. From that moment England started to import sugar canes from India and America, beginning several experiments and the first refinements in wooden barrels. During American colonialism, rum became the favourite alcoholic beverage of numerous islands around the world. Each island produced it with its own method and peculiarities.

 

Seafaring (and piracy) greatly helped rum consumption and its global spread. Over time, every country in the world transformed rum into something local, typical and characteristic.

 

The production process of rum begins with sugar cans cultivation. The sugar is fermented and then distilled in a still. Subsequently, rum is aged for a quite long time in wooden barrels. Some lucky rums are also blended by an expert that mixes different curvée of different years creating a rum of the highest quality.

 

There are different types of rum: Cuban rum, Jamaican rum, Puerto Rican rum, French rum and Antillean rum. There are also Trinidad rums as well as rums of particular islands that are high-quality rums, ideal for the most demanding palates.

 

Rum has had great success in recent years, thanks to its use in the preparation of cocktails and the marketing of some great brands, such as Havana Club, Pampero, Kraken, Don Papa and Diplomatico.

 

At Wine Online we love rum, but we prefer small niche brands that offer a great product at an excellent quality/price ratio. However, at the request of many customers we have also included some more popular brands.
