The next time you get a sit down for a Rum cocktail at Trader Vics, you better bet that the legendary Lemon Hart 151 is the float. 
 
No, Lemon Hart Rums don’t taste like lemons. Lemon was the nickname of the founder, Leyman “Lemon” Hart, a savvy and gregarious businessman 200 years ago who built his Rum business through a passion for life, love, and adventure. This guy makes today’s extreme sports fanatics look tame. He fronted expeditions to the Caribean and started a local militia to fight off Napoleon’s invasion, among other achievements. The one we care about right now is that he was the official Rum-supplier to the Royal Navy. 
 
Lemon Hart Rum produces three varieties: The Original, 151, and Navy Spiced. All of them are Demerara Rums from Guyana and all are sought after by those in the know for drinking straight and mixing into classic cocktails.
 
Lemon Hart 151 is a genuine legend. Uncle Flaviar’s original 1946 edition of Trader Vic’s cocktail recipes specifically calls for Lemon Hart 151 Rum. You just cannot make a genuine Zombie or other classic Rum cocktails without it. It’s like the Vepser Martini … James Bond’s famous drink is made with Lillet Blanc, NOT Vermouth. There is just no substitute. When it comes to those famous, amazing, classic Rum cocktails, anything besides Lemon Hart 151 is just a miss. 
 
The good folks at Lemon Hart are sooooo particular about their products that they sometimes just run out. That happened last year in 2014. Demand was so high and the supplies of the “good stuff” was so low, they just said “mahalo" and stopped shipping until production caught up with the next year’s harvest. Don’t you just love that? The point is, get yourself a few bottles of this genuine 75% ABV, Caribbean classic while you can. 
 
“Back in the day, Trader Vic, Don the Beachcomber, and I got together for a BBQ. Vic tended bar as usual and mixed up a batch of Mai Tais for us with Lemon Hart 151. People always ask how the three of us got those matching tattoos.”  — Uncle Flaviar

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.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.

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 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.
