A Guide to Summer Rums

Why Do People Love Rum?

Rum is the world’s most popular distilled spirit. The word “Rum” originally comes from the word “rumbullion”, meaning a noisy commotion or rowdy disturbance.

There are many types of rum, but the most popular are white rum, dark rum spiced rum, and aged rum.

The distilled alcoholic beverage is made from sugarcane byproducts such as molasses or sugarcane juice. It is usually aged in oak barrels and can be used in cocktails such as the Jamaican Rum Punch. It can also be made from various fruits such as bananas, apples, or raisins. This leads to the creation of many different types of flavors for rums such as pineapple or coconut flavored rums.
