From pirates’ grog to premium rums
For many people, the word rum brings to mind images of Johnny Depp and his alter-ego Captain Jack Sparrow, but there’s much more to this delicious drink than its association with pirates, the sea and sailors.
First distilled in the Caribbean in the 1620s, rum is believed to be the oldest spirit in the world. Its names throughout history have included kill-devil, demon water, Navy neaters, Nelson’s blood, Barbados water, grog and rumbullion.
Although rum is most often thought of as a sweet spirit, white rum can be dry, spiced rum can be an adventure in a glass, while darker rums aged in oak can have a taste that is as layered and subtle as a quality whisky.
Of course you and your friends can sip it with your favourite mixer (pina colada, anyone?) but we recommend our premium chocolate & orange rum liqueur is treated like a quality cognac and enjoyed neat, so you can really savour the flavour.
How many types of rum are there?
One of the most interesting things about this delicious spirit is although it’s manufactured in several countries and consumed all over the world, there is no standard global classification system.
That means factors such as the base ingredient, whether it’s sugarcane juice or molasses, minimum alcohol percentage and ageing requirements are different from nation to nation.
Rum currently breaks down to three styles: English, French (known as rhum) and Spanish. It can also be classified into different grades according to its colour, age and strength.
Also known as light or silver rum, this is generally lighter-bodied and has a sweeter taste, making it perfect for daiquiris or mojito cocktails.
White rum is made from ingredients such as molasses or sugarcane juice, and is usually aged for a year in oak casks or stainless steel tanks, before being carbon or charcoal filtered. That said, the length of ageing can vary, depending on where it’s produced.
Also known as ‘amber’ rums, these are medium-bodied drinks whose gorgeous colour comes from a longer ageing in ex-bourbon barrels or by the addition of caramel. Don’t be put off by the latter, it has no impact on the rum’s flavour.
There is no exact definition of dark or black rum, which has a stronger flavour and deeper colour. The spirit is usually aged for long periods of time in heavily charred barrels or using oak chips, and caramel can also be used to produce that dark colour, but again won’t affect the taste.
To make spiced rums, nutmeg and cinnamon, alongside other flavours such as vanilla, are added during the distillation stage.
This rum is made from freshly squeezed cane juice, creating an earthy and grassy-tasting drop. It’s a twist on the molasses-based drink, which has creamier, sweeter flavour.
