Rum

The first stirrings of the rich history of rum rippled on the verdant sugarcane plantations of the Caribbean at the very start of the 17th century. At first called rumbullion (a word that was later also used to describe ‘a riotous good time’ or ‘great tumult’), it was finally shortened to rum, and became a firm favorite around the world.

Today exceptional white rums like Wray & Nephew, and gorgeous dark rums like Appleton Estate sing in the background of countless amazing cocktails. From the Classic Hot Buttered Rum that warms you from the inside out to the zesty and always refreshing Mojito that is tailor-made for summer enjoyment, there’s sure to be a rum cocktail that lies right up your alley.
