The looks of a white Rum and the taste of an aged one.

When you hear the name Matusalem, you can probably guess we ain’t talking about no new kid on the block. In the Old Testament, Matusalem would live up to be a 969-year-old and while Matusalem Rum hasn’t been around for 969 years as it was founded in 1872 in Santiago de Cuba by Benjamin and Eduardo Camp, the idea behind the name was – timelessness. The most sought-after Rum during Cuba’s Golden Age – you know, when all the artists wanted to be there, including Hemingway who even ended up living there – Matusalem never followed trends, but instead opted for the classics. Named the Cognac of Rums for using Solera ageing, today, Matusalem is bottled in the Dominican Republic as the family initially producing it went into exile after Castro gained control of the country.

On the looks of it, you'd say Matusalem Platino is a White Rum, but it's actually not. Distilled from fermented molasses, it's then aged with the Solera method for 18 months and – this step is crucial – filtered with activated carbon. The result is a crystal clear Rum with the complexity and creaminess of an aged one. Bottled at a respectable 80 proof, this Rum will immediately seduce you with its clean and elegant palate. It's extremely versatile, so you can really have the way you prefer to take your Rum.

You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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).
Three branches of the family started feuding in 1981, resulting in court cases that lasted into the mid-90s. It all ended in 1995 when the great-grandson of the founder, Dr. Claudio Alvarez Salazar, gained control of the Matusalem trademark in an out-of-court settlement.
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.
