What is RUM?

The sweet juice of sugar cane through a refining process known as molasses is the raw material for making RUM. The Caribbean is the heart where the sugar cane is grown. The alcohol content of rum is bottled at about 40% alcohol by volume, other rums are bottled at the strength at 75.5 or 151 proof.

There are three basic types of Rum

White Rum is clear in color. Some type needs to be fermented in oak barrels to acquire a tasty spirit. This type of rum is popular to use when you want “no change in color” effect.

Golden Rum is golden in color. The spirit acquires its color as the raw spirits is mixed with dark-colored caramel and fermented in oak barrels. This process produces more elegant taste of an aged spirit.
