History of Rum is just as fascinating as the beverage itself. The cornerstones have been set by the Spanish and Portugeese conquistadores at the time of Christopher Columbus by taking the sugarcane, the base of every rum, to the Caribbean Islands. On their journeys to far new countries they also brought stills along, launching the triumphal procession of the rum.

Nowadays high quality rums have become much more common, reaching the hightest levels of popularity with spirit aficionados and high class gastronomy. Due to its complexity and quality rum meanwhile is cited in tandem with good old friends like Whisk(e)y or Cognac.
