Rum was the original American spirit before the Revolution in the 1770s, fueled by cheap and readily accessible molasses from the Caribbean colonies. The number of small distilleries across North America was astounding. The tax on molasses was a principal factor in the American Revolution.
Several centuries later, craft rum distilleries are again sprouting up across America at an astounding pace. National, regional and local rums distillers are gaining well-deserved attention -- with many making their mark as true artisan spirits -- winning awards and setting new standards for authentic, hand-made rum.
At The New American Rum Revolution seminar, participants will explore rum's past, taste rum's present and listen to predictions of rum's future as they sample ten outstanding examples of great American rum.
