History of Rum's Internationa Day


The history of International Rum Day begins with the very invention of what we consider modern rum. Historians speculate that it was around 1650 when the indigenous people of the West Indies began experimenting with fermenting sugar cane into alcohol. Today we know this region as the Caribbean Basin.


It was only when explorers arrived in the region that this alcohol was properly distilled into rum. It quickly became an essential product in the many political negotiations that took place between the colonies. Rum drinks were often offered as bribes for the favor of one political candidate over another.


The rest, as they say, is history.
