Rum is a popular liquor created from the fermentation and distillation of sugar. The sugar base used to produce the rum can be either pure cane sugar, molasses, or a syrup. Regardless of the base, the flavor of rum is a sweet, toasted sugar. Rum’s use of sugar is what differentiates it from other liquors.
Rum is one of the oldest distilled spirits. In the mid-1700s, the liquor became extremely popular throughout the Caribbean and South America. Shortly after, rum began being produces and consumed in New England. Today rum is a popular spirit worldwide and is used to create a large variety of cocktails.
Rum is produced by fermenting the pure cane sugar, molasses, or syrup. Once fermented, the sugarcane molasses or sugarcane juice is distilled. The distillate is then aged in a barrel or cask.
Though sugar is the underlying taste of rum, there are many kinds of rum, and each variety will have its own individual flavor marks. Light rum, gold rum, dark rum, spiced rum, and flavored rum are among the most popular styles of rum. There are also rums specific to certain origins such as Cachaça, and Rhum Agricole. Lastly, overproof rum is another variety of rum. Overproof rum is typically 75-75.5% ABV and 150-151 proof. Most other varieties of rum range anywhere from 70-100 proof and 35-50% ABV.
A general serving suggestion for rum is one shot—which is typically 1.5 ounces or about 42 grams of liquid. The liquor can be used to create popular cocktails such as a daquiri, rum runner, pina colada, mai tai, mojito, and hundreds more.
