The world’s first eco-friendly Rhum brand brings a mellowed, rested Spirit to the back-bar.

Batiste calls themselves "The Most Earth-Friendly Cocktail Rhum." The company was founded by Tristan Mermin and has Jon lawson as COO — two super-experienced veterans of the Spirits industry. Tristan is an industry consultant and Jon has worked at Constellation brands, Diageo, Copain Wines, and more. Together they have decades of industry know-how. They have sourced agricole Rhum from the Caribbean island of Marie-Galante — administered by Guadeloupe — where they deploy sustainable farming and distilling techniques in the production of Rhum Spirits. The raw Rhum is finished and bottled in Northern California.

All Batiste Rhums are agricole — meaning that they are made from pure sugarcane juice (as opposed to molasses). Batiste proudly claims that all their Rhums are not only carbon neutral, but they are actually carbon negative. Starting with their award-winning Silver Rhum, they rest Batiste Rhum Gold in ex-Rye Whiskey casks for three to six months. This time in the barrel adds a bit of Rye character and further mellows an already smooth and delicious cocktail Rhum.

Smartass Corner:
So, why do they spell "Rum" with an "h" as "Rhum?" The spelling change is a tip of the hat to a difference between molasses-based "Rums" and new-make sugarcane juice-based "Rhums" in the eastern Caribbean.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
