What is the story behind Barbados rum?

Barbados rum has a long and rich history dating back to the 17th century when British colonists began growing sugar cane on the island. Rum distillation became a popular way to process and preserve sugar cane. The first rums from Barbados were quite strong and used as medicine, but over time they were refined into the smooth, sweet drink we know today. Barbados is home to many of the most popular rum brands in the Caribbean, including Mount Gay, one of the world's oldest and most prestigious brands.

What characteristics distinguish Barbados rum from other Caribbean rums?

Barbados rum is known for its smoothness, sweetness, and complexity. Unlike many other Caribbean rums, Barbados rum is made with molasses, a by-product of sugar cane, rather than sugar cane juice. The molasses is fermented and then distilled in copper pot stills, giving the rum its distinctive flavour and smoothness. Barbados rum is also matured in oak barrels, giving it its flavour of vanilla, caramel, and spices.

What brands of rum originate from Barbados?

Barbados is home to many of the world's most famous rum brands, including Mount Gay, one of the world's oldest and most prestigious brands, and the oldest known rum brand still in business. Other Barbados rum brands include Dos Maderas, Plantation, and Mount Gay. Each of these brands has its own history and its own unique characteristics, but they all share the smooth, sweet, and complex taste of Barbados rum.
