From freshly squeezed sugarcane juice.

Based in the sunny Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Damoiseau is situated in the best place to make some very fine Rhum Agricole. Rhum differs from Rum in that it is made from sugar cane juice rather than molasses. The tradition of making Rhum has been on the island for centuries and Damoiseau are the biggest producers found here. The Bellevue Distillery was bought by the Damiouseau family in 1942, and remains in the family to this day.
 
Damoiseau’s VSOP Rhum is distilled from the finest sugar cane Guadeloupe has to offer. It is then matured in charred ex-Bourbon casks for a minimum of four years. This Rhum has a sweet and complex flavour profile, with a great spiciness and gentle bitter coffee taste that really emphasises the saccharine over tones.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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).
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 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.’
