National Rum Day

Join National Rum Day on August 16th as blended beverages and cocktails create a delectable celebration. Rum is a distilled clear alcoholic beverage that is a byproduct of sugar production. It can also be made directly from sugar cane juice. Most rum ages in wooden oak barrels after the fermentation and distillation process.


Rum is the third most popular spirit in the United States, according to Rum. Only vodka and all the whiskeys mixed beat it for first and second place in first and second ranks. The spirit makes its way into citrusy mixed drinks, and cool blended summer cocktails. So much so, the rum stirs up images of sandy beaches and vividly colored umbrellas in fruity drinks.

However, rum also conjures up sailors and pirates. The reason for that is how rum came to be. Large plantations grew sugar cane in the West Indies during the 1600s. They created molasses as a by-product when they extracted the sugar. The molasses was a waste product for years before it was discovered that it could be distilled – into rum. Rum became not only a commodity for trade but also a ration on the ships transporting the product, but also a ration on the ships delivering the product. British sailors received an allotment of rum until 1970, even in the modern Royal Navy.
