What is rum?

 Rum is an alcoholic beverage, made from sugar cane or molasses by fermentation. The product is then distilled at high temperatures using copper or stainless steel stills to obtain a high ethanol content. The resulting distillate is then diluted with pure demineralized water until an ethanol concentration of between 35 and 40% is reached. Subsequently, optionally, it is subjected to aging processes, usually in oak barrels .

What is the origin of rum?

This drink is first mentioned in documents from Barbados in 1650. It was called kill-devil or rumbullion (a word from Devonshire, England, meaning 'a great tumult'). In the French West Indian colonies, it was called guildive (modification of kill-devil) and later tafia, an African or indigenous term .  As early as 1667 it was simply called rum. The first official mention of the word rum appears in an order issued by the Governor-General of Jamaica dated 8 July  1661.

The first distillation of rum took place in the sugar cane plantations of the Caribbean in the seventeenth century. The slaves of the plantations were the first to discover this product, later it was passed through processes of refining sugar, which when fermented was transformed into alcohol.
