Ever heard of Caroni? Good chance you haven’t. Only a handful of Rum aficionados know about this under-the-radar distillery. Here’s why: this Trinidadian state distillery from the 1920s was shuttered in 2002. Plus, most of its heavy Rums were sold for different blends. Damn shame, that.

After the distillery closed, the remaining stock was gradually bottled cask by cask and released onto the market. That’s made it a cult hit that gets snapped up quicker than you can say “buzz.” This 17-year-old badass was bottled at an impressive 70.4% ABV. A great Rum for a Rummy.

Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.’
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
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.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
