Three on a Rum Treasure Island

Want to take the Rum corner of your home bar to the future? We got you

Rum has been around since the 17th century but now that you’ve got your traditional Rum sippers down, we think you’re ready for more innovative Rum expressions

And what better way to explore Rum-ovation than with Ron Colon. The story of Ron Colon begins with Thurman Wise and Pepijn Janssens in 2018. The two friends traveled across the Americas and left their hearts in El Salvador where they started a mini Rum-olution (We’ll stop now).

We’ve boiled it down to three Ron Colon expressions we think you absolutely need in your home bar. Let’s start with The Ron Colón Salvadoreño Dark Aged Rum. This is an impressive blend of 3 Rums: a 6YO column-stilled Salvadoran Rum from Licorera Cihuatán Distillery, 3YO Jamaican pot-stilled, and un-aged pot still made Rum. This premium aged Rum won Gold at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Next up, The Ron Colón Salvadoreño Coffee Infused Rum Green Label. This is an outstanding aged Rum that’s infused with the finest coffee beans. Now, you might be used to that twist in other Spirits, but Rum? Probably not. And finally, Ron Colón Salvadoreño Rum Rye. which would technically categorize as a Hybrid Spirit. Rum and Rye? This is a blend that is sure to elevate your Rum collection. It combines Ron Colon Dark Aged Rum with a 4-years-old American Straight Rye, aged in #4 car casks. There's nothing else out there quite like it.

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.
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).
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.
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.’
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.
