A well-aged premium Rum from Barbados.

Ever heard of the Crop Over festival? It’s a big thing in Barbados: it dates back to 1687 and celebrates the end of the sugar cane harvest. The whole island comes together to express the gratitude for the fruits of the harvest. There’s music, dancing, calypso, colorful celebrations, you name it. And there's the festival’s grand finale: the Grand Kadooment, which translates to “a big occasion, filled with joy and vigour”. This is the part where the best workers are crowned King and Queen of the crop. The Grand Kadoo range celebrates the island’s colorful culture. Produced at a family-owned distillery, the 4th generation of Rum makers crafts and ages their unique premium Rums in the Bajan heat, far away from the hustle and bustle.

Grand Kadoo 8 Year Old Caribbean Rum is a blend of pot and column still Rums that were tropically aged for at least 8 years in American oak ex-Whiskey barrels. The heat helps get the most out of aging, which means it would actually take much longer to get the same results somewhere colder. The results in question? Beautiful aromas of burnt orange, toffee pudding and cinnamon that melt into flavors of anise, bitter orange peel, coffee and dark chocolate with a bitter coco, walnut, cinnamon and sea salt finish. Sip this high-end Rum neat or make tropical cocktails for your most demanding guests.

Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
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 used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
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.
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.
