Rum is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses or honeys, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels.
The majority of the world's rum production occurs in the Caribbean and Latin America. Rum is also produced in Austria, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Philippines, Reunion Island, Mauritius, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, the United States, Canada, India, Nepal, and United Kingdom.
Rums are produced in various grades. Light rums are commonly used in cocktails, whereas "golden" and "dark" rums were typically consumed straight or neat, on the rocks, or used for cooking, and are now commonly consumed with mixers. Premium rums are also available, made to be consumed either straight or iced.
When Jerry and I were in Jamaica we toured the Captain Morgan Rum Company. We were given samples. Not surprising, on the way back to our hotel on the bus, most of the people were sound asleep! Ya think they had enough samples???? LOL.
Do you know the story of Captain Henry Morgan? Well, Captain Morgan was not only a legend; in fact, he was the Governor of Jamaica. A young 17th Century Welshman who set out for the West Indies, Captain Morgan’s unwavering ambition and leadership took him to every port-of-call, creating a legend, and building a reputation, that would precede him the rest of his life. He became the most legendary and likable pirate to ever sail the seas, a distinction that earned him the loyalty of his crew, and the title of Sir Henry Morgan, who became Governor of Jamaica. So is the legend of the man on which the famous Captain Morgan Rum Company is built.
